Seasonal Release: Pacific Century Citrus IPA

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

We brewers of Baird Beer love the citrus character imparted by certain Pacific hop varieties. We also are fortunate to have access to a wide variety of fresh local citrus fruit here in Numazu. We combine this love and this fortune every year in the brewing of a special seasonal beer: Pacific Century Citrus IPA.

New Baird Beer Seasonal Release:
Pacific Century Citrus IPA 2011 (ABV 7%):

In this 2011 version we have raised the bittering units to 75 and augmented our traditional use of daidai fruit with additions of Shizuoka-grown dekopon fruit. These fruit additions combine with several citrus-character hop varieties (Columbus, Motueka and NZ Cascade) to yield an uniquely fruity and refreshing India Pale Ale.

Pacific Century Citrus IPA 2011 is available in limited quantities in both bottles (633 ml) and kegs. Consumers can purchase bottles direct from our brewery online E-Shop (
