Seasonal Release – Morning Coffee Stout; Saturday Taproom Brunch

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

Are you a fan of rich, roasty and robust stouts? Do you love a fresh brewed morning coffee? The answer is yes for me on both counts.

New Baird Beer Seasonal Releases:
*Morning Coffee Stout 2011 (ABV 7.5%):

Each year at Baird Beer we combine our passion for stout with our love of coffee in the brewing of Morning Coffee Stout. This 2012 version is an export-style stout infused with freshly roasted (delivered still warm direct from the roaster of our friends at Arabica Coffee) Kilimanjaro beans. We add these beans — whole, without grinding – directly to the stout in the conditioning tank in what amounts to a cold beer toddy extraction method. The result is a perfectly balanced flavor marriage between stout beer and java beans.

Morning Coffee Stout 2012 debuts tomorrow (Saturday, February 11) at 11:00 am sharp at all of our Taproom pubs in a special Morning Coffee Stout Brunch (see menu details below). It also will be available both on draught and in bottles (630 ml) at other fine Baird Beer retailing establishments throughout Japan.
