Upcoming Seasonal Releases

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

Into the scorching heat of summer we will be releasing from the cool confines of our Baird Beer cellar the following seasonal brews.

Upcoming Baird Beer Seasonal Releases:
*HT-3 Natsumikan Lager (5.5%):

This month marks the third year anniversary of the opening of our Harajuku Taproom. To commemorate we have brewed a special lager fruited (fresh peels and squeezed juice) with Shizuoka natsumikans. It will be tapped at noon sharp, Saturday, August 4, thus kicking off the Harajuku Taprooms two-day birthday celebration. Plan to join the staff and fellow enthusiasts for what promises to be a weekend of great beer and food and much merriment.

HT-3 Natsumikan Lager is draught-only and available exclusively at the Harajuku Taproom.

*Asian Beauty Biwa Ale (5.5%):

Biwa is “the small, yellow, edible, plum-like fruit of the loquat tree.” We had no idea what it was until our partner-friend-carpenter-farmer, Nagakura-san, brought some in several years ago for us to taste and then brew with. It is an extremely subtle fruit that harmonizes sweetness with tartness. Asian Beauty Biwa Ale is coyly fruity, spritely effervescent and yet delicately firm — like a true Asian Beauty!

Asian Beauty is available in both kegs and bottles (360 ml). It will begin shipping on Monday, August 6.

*Workingman’s Dark Mild (3.5%):

This is the quintessential English session ale. In good British pub fashion, it will be available only as real ale dispensed via handpump. It will be poured exclusively at our Taproom pubs beginning Friday, August 10.
