Stout Month Seasonal Releases — Mama’s Milk Stout & Luck of the Irish Red Ale; St. Patrick’s Day Celebration

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

Our Lucky Seven Stout Month celebration continues with today’s release of two more seasonal brews: Mama’s Milk Stout and Luck of the Irish Red Ale.

Baird Beer Seasonal Releases:
*Mama’s Milk Stout (4.5%):

Milk Stout is a stout of moderate gravity and alcohol that is brewed with a portion of milk sugar (lactose). This lactose is not fermentable by brewer’s yeast and thus remains in the beer after fermentation, contributing to the body and mouthfeel of the beer. Milk Stout was once thought to be a beer good for nursing mothers. The flavor is certainly one that makes the imbiber feel wholesomely nourished.

Mama’s Milk Stout is now pouring from our Taproom taps and is available for immediate release (bottles and kegs) to Baird Beer retailers throughout Japan.

*Luck of the Irish Red Ale (4.5%):

We brew this malt-laden, biscuity red ale each year to mark the celebration of St. Patrick’s day (March 17). This year we have brewed it on our large system and thus have bottles and kegs to release to the general Japan beer market. Luck of the Irish Red Ale will be pulled from our Taproom handpumps beginning tonight (Friday, March 15).

Please note our St. Patrick’s Day Taproom celebration on Sunday, March 17. Our Taproom kitchens will be serving some special Irish pub cuisine and we will be toasting Ireland’s patron saint all day long with 500 yen pints of Luck of the Irish Red Ale and Shimaguni Stout (our year-round Irish-style dry stout).

We look forward to seeing you.
