Seasonal Stout Release — Midnight Oil Export Stout; Lucky 7 Stout Month in Full Swing

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

March is the month that we at Baird Brewing celebrate the dark side of the beer world — stout ales! Lucky 7 Stout Month is in full swing at all of our Taproom pubs. Today we are pleased to announce the Japan-wide release of one of our annually brewed seasonal stouts: Midnight Oil Export Stout.

Baird Beer Seasonal Release:
*Midnight Oil Export Stout (6.7%):

Export stouts generally are rich and roasty in flavor, moderately high in alcohol strength, and sport some noticeable hop character (normally registering in terms of bitterness and flavor). Baird Midnight Oil Export Stout enjoys a complexly layered roasted malt (barley & wheat) character that is balanced beautiful by a kiss of caramel sweetness. A firm, straightforward hop flavor rounds this stout into perfect condition.

Midnight Oil Export Stout is available for immediate release in both kegs and bottles (360 ml). It begins pouring from our Taproom pub taps tonight (Friday, March 8).

An additional stout not to be missed, and part of our Lucky 7 Stout Month celebration, is now being pulled exclusively through our Taproom handpumps — Smoke & Fire Stout (5% abv and brewed with Habanero peppers from draught beer manager Chris’ garden). The base malt used in Smoke & Fire is completely beachwood smoked malt from Germany. As the smoke vanishes, a kiss of Habanero fire appears — not enough to burn, just enough to excite and captivate.

Taproom Events:
*Lucky 7 Stout Month at all four Taproom Pubs:

The month-long celebration of stout ales at our Taproom pubs began last weekend at the Morning Coffee Stout brunch. It continues all month long. Below are the Taproom release dates for the stouts on our Lucky 7 menu:

Morning Coffee Stout (3/2)
Smoke & Fire Stout (3/6)
Midnight Oil Export Stout (3/8)
Mama’s Milk Stout (3/15)
Shimaguni Stout as well as Luck of the Irish Red Ale (3/17 – St. Patrick’s Day)
Black Smoke Stout (3/20 – national holiday)
Great American Stout (3/25)
Be sure to pick up a Lucky 7 Stout stampcard at a Taproom counter. The card contains punches for all seven stouts plus one for Luck of the Irish Red Ale. All patrons who complete the full card by the end of the month will receive a free Baird Beer shirt (you may choose among our several styles).

Additionally, each Taproom will be featuring special menu items to match the stout styles on draught. Come in and taste for yourself the diversity inherent in this iconic beer style.

*Bashamichi Taproom Live (CODE); Saturday, March 9 from 8:00 pm:

CODE was a band formed by an eclectic group of young expat teachers in Numazu back around 2000. They were Fishmarket Taproom regulars and early Baird Beer fans. More importantly, they were passionate about their music. This passion came through not just in the quality of the music, but in the creativity and originality too.

Most of the guys have moved from Numazu and work as professionals in and around Tokyo. We are pleased to bring that back together as a musical entity which will be performing live at our Bashamichi Taproom this Saturday evening. Sayuri and I will be there in full groupie mode, rocking ourselves back down memory lane. Please join us.

Cheers,

Bryan Baird

French Cake: Shizuoka Tropical Fruit Tart at Patina in Shizuoka City!

SN3O3345

Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: A true cafe where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list.

Shizuoka has the mildest climate in Japan after Okinawa which allows for the culture of all kinds of fruit either outdoors or in green houses.
Recently locally grown fruit are witnessing a big increase both in production and consumption.
It seems there is no limit to the varieties!

SN3O3344

Last time i went there for my regular coffee i noticed a new tart being offered at Patina in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!

SN3O3343

Shizuoka Tropical Fruit tart with banana, papaya and star fruit!

SN3O3346

Chef Akiko Kondoh/近藤亜希子さん’s tarts look as delicious as ever!

SN3O3347

All these colors reminded me of our tropical French islands in the Caribbean or off east Africa, not mentioning those in the Pacific ocean!

SN3O3348

Can you see the fruit?
The tart is served lukewarm for a perfect balance with the ice-cream!

SN3O3349

Yes, I always reserve this part for the last bite! LOL

SN3O3350

Mind you Akiko’s vanilla and Calvados ice-cream is a good enough reason to visit the place!

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

Izakaya Gastronomy: Bu-Ichi in Shizuoka City!

SN3O3448

Watarigani/ワタリガニ/Swimming crabs from Suruga Bay!

Service: Very friendly and easy-going
Equipment: Very clean overall. Spacious and beautiful toilets
Prices: reasonable to slightly expensive, but very good value!
Strong points: Extensive use of local land and sea products. Great sake and drinks in general!

Izakaya gastronomy is THE gastronomy of Japan.
It comes at different levels and prices from the cheap small food stands to some elaborate establishments with the consequent prices.
If one truly wants to discover local food and ingredients just visit the many izakayas you are bound to find anywhere in Japan!
Now, in Shizuoka, as we are blessed (and that officially!) with the largest number of varieties of land and sea food in Japan, it becomes a delightful headache as to which place to patronize.
Even so, Bu Ichi in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City stands head and shoulders above most izakayas in town and prefecture and a lot of regular customers from all status have more than often to battle for a seat!

Alright, let me show you what Takeshi Satoh/佐藤武史 prepared for our short dinner the other day!

SN3O3450

A lot of attention is brought to the smallest details!

SN3O3449

The o-tooshi/snack served with the first drink: Simmered daikon with na no hana/rape flowers!

SN3O3451

Avery rare (there were only two available that day!) watarigani/swimming crab caught in the Western part of Suruga Bay! One half for each of us two!

SN3O3452

Loads of tender meat!

SN3O3453

Including the brains of the crab! Truly extravagant!

SN3O3454

Sashimi assortment all from Shizuoka!

SN3O3455

Katsuo/Bonito with grated ginger and chopped scallions!

SN3O3456

Madai/True seabream!

SN3O3457

Boiled tako/octopus served with grated Shizuoka wasabi!

SN3O3459

A favorite of mine: Kujira/whale!

SN3O3458

The leaf at the back is a wasabi leaf!

SN3O3460

More tender and tastier than beef!

SN3O3461

Deep-fried oysters in panko/breadcrumbs!

SN3O3462

True oyster lover must sample that!

SN3O3463

Now what does that splendid tempura consist of?

SN3O3464

Sardine wrapped in shiso/perilla accompanied with some fukinotou/Giant butterbur or fuki bog rhubarb, a wild winter vegetable!

And that was for the first part of the night, but I can guarantee you we shall come back soon for a full dinner!

American Gastronomy: Pancakes at Takajyo PANCAKES in Shizuoka City!

SN3O3435

Service: Smiling and attentive
Equipment & Facilities: Overall very clean. Superb wasroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Pancakes! Local vegetables. Healthy food.

As opposite to crepes which are French, pancakes must be definitely part of American gastronomy unless the British claim it first!
Now, if such a simple comfort food can be created and presented as gastronomic health food, I shall be the first to enjoy it despite my Gallic origins!

SN3O3488

Only 1 minute walk from Cenova Department Store on the right side of Kitakaido Street it is within very easy access!

SN3O3489

Takajyo PANCAKE is the first pancake-specialized restaurant in Shizuoka and is owned by Cafe Studio @ Shizuoka!

SN3O3490

And the restaurant is all non-smoking!
If you absolutely wish to indulge in your life-threatening habit, you may smoke in the back-yard terrace which is completely locked out in the cold, and that with some restrictions!

SN3O3442

The environment is simply spotless clean!

SN3O3431

You are constantly reminded of the menu offerings on samll screens and the music is all soft American jazz!

SN3O3443

Very cute menus for lunch!
Actually the place is open all day!
And you may indulge in drinking all day, too!

SN3O3444

Don’t worry if you can’t read Japanese…..

SN3O3492

The picture menus will make your choice easy!

SN3O3491

The lunch menus include a soup and a soft drink!
Let’s dicover some of their offerings!

SN3O3430

All vegetables, including those in soups and salads are all local and suprbly fresh!

SN3O3432

Great and tasty hot comfort for the winter!

SN3O3445

The black tea is actually made in Kawane, Shizuoka Prefecture!

SN3O3433

Herb pancake set lunch !

SN3O3437

Seasoned with a delicious herb dressing!

SN3O3436

Beautiful and crunchy salad!

SN3O3438

All this smoked salmon and vegetables are so healthy!
Mind you, it is highly satisfying!

SN3O3440

Actually, most of the leaf vegetables are also organic!

SN3O3439

And a beautiful soft-boiled egg (local) for exquisite balance!

SN3O3493

Millefeuille pancake lunch set!
I suppose any truly gastronomic American diner meust feature something in French on their menu! LOL

SN3O3494

Beautiful salad again!

SN3O3495

French “Millefeuille” sounds better than British “sandwich#! LOL

SN3O3497

Home-made roast beef!

SN3O3446

Now if you have some space left, try the mini pancake dessert set!

SN3O3447

I’m sure you will be tempted!

Who said there was no such thing as American gastroonomy?

See you at dinner next as there is a lot more to discover!
