New Seasonal Release: Winter Wit

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

The rainy-snowy, dark and dreary bleakness of this year’s winter season continues to drag on. The timing, thus, could not be more appropriate for the introduction of a golden ray of beery sunshine. Today I am pleased to announce the release of a vibrant, effervescent seasonal ale: Baird Winter Wit.

New Baird Beer Seasonal Release:
*Baird Winter Wit (ABV 6.8%):

Witbier is a Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with a high proportion of un-malted wheat from which it derives a whitish color. Typically it is a light, tart, crisp and refreshing ale of low-alcohol strength. Baird Winter Wit is a heartier (16.4 plato) and stronger (6.8% abv) cold-season take on this classic Belgian beer style.

Our grist is a blend of un-malted and malted wheat, floor-malted Pilsner and Maris Otter, with touches of carahell (adding body and color). The hopping is light and performed with a combination of New Zealand (Motueka), Czech (Saaz) and German (Tradition, Hersbrucker) varieties. The magic occurs when this ingredient combination is then fermented with our Belgian yeast strain.

The result is a pleasantly tart and spicy, sprightly carbonated ale with a hazy golden hue upon which sits a billowing head of virgin-white foam. The warmth comes in the finish, just enough to furbish without interfering with the refreshment. Glorious!

Baird Winter Wit is now pouring at all four of our Taproom pubs. It also will be available on draught and in bottles (630 ml) at other fine Baird Beer retailing establishments throughout Japan.
