Seasonal Debut: Baird IPL

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

Every season is a good season for the enjoyment of craft beer. Spring, though, with its promise of renewal and rebirth, seems a particularly propitious season for the exploration of new and unique beer styles. In this spirit, we are proud to announce the release of a maiden Baird Beer seasonal brew: India Pale Lager (IPL).

New Baird Beer Seasonal Releases:
*Baird IPL (ABV 5.6%):

India Pale Ales, as we all know, are highly hopped and fairly strong top-fermented beers borne of the era of British colonial domination of India. Well, we have taken this extremely popular craft beer style, brewing it to the specs of a moderately strong IPA (14.9 P, 5.6% ABV, 62 IBU of American Magnum, Centennial, Glacier & Cascade hops), and fermented it with a bottom-cropping lager yeast. The result is a smooth and round lager flavor with a snappy, almost prickly, hop bite. Enjoy!

Baird IPL is available both on draught and in bottles (633 ml) beginning today (Tuesday, April 19). Individual consumers can purchase bottles direct from the brewery via our online E-Shop.

In addition to the IPL and other seasonal releases which we have recently announced, we also are pouring exclusively at our Taproom pubs a number of unannounced small-batch seasonal brews, including Great American Stout, Mama’s Milk Stout and Workingman’s Dark Mild. Visit a Taproom today and check out what is on tap!
