Bryan Baird Newsletter (2014/01/31): Seasonal Release: Ganko Oyaji Barley Wine 2014

Baird Beer & Taproom Events Bulletin

Seasonal Release: Ganko Oyaji Barley Wine 2014

Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:

We are proud, for the ninth consecutive year, to announce the release of a most special winter-warmer ale: Ganko Oyaji Barley Wine.

Baird Beer Seasonal Release:

*Ganko Oyaji Barley Wine 2014 (ABV 10%):

The first batch of Ganko Oyaji Barley Wine was brewed back in Summer 2004 and released in February 2005. We have repeated this ‘brew-it-in-summer-for-release-next-winter’ schedule for Ganko Oyaji every year as it allows ample time for post-packaged secondary fermentation and flavor maturation — critical to beers of extremely high original gravity and alcohol strength.

Ganko Oyaji 2014 is brewed with an all-English malt bill that includes floor-malted Marris Otter, Rye, Amber and a touch of Roast Barley. A Kettle addition of Japanese red cane (akato) sugar contributes extra food for yeast fermentation without adding more in the way of body and sweetness — there is plenty of both of those in this high original gravity ale (23.9 Plato). The malt sweetness is balanced beautifully by generous additions (90 calculated IBUs) of five American-grown hop varieties: Millenium, Nugget, Sorachi Ace, Chinook and Simcoe. As always, we krausen (blending of a portion of peak fermentation beer into the beer destined for packaging) at packaging to produce a robust secondary fermentation and totally natural carbonation.

Ganko Oyaji is an ideal after-dinner or before-bed restorative. It promises to condition nicely for months and years to come. It is available for immediate shipment (bottles and kegs) to Baird Beer retailers throughout Japan. It begins pouring from the taps of Baird Taproom pubs on Saturday, February 1.

Cheers!

Bryan Baird

Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Oomuraya Brewery-Wakatake Oni Koroshi Honjozo Genshu

SN3O5189

The “Oni Koroshi/Kill a Goblin” made by Oomuraya Brewery in Shimada City is probably the most famous Oni Koroshi in Japan and actually was the main brand sake of the same brewery.

SN3O5190

It is a very dry sake originally aimed at male drinkers but times have certainly changed and everyone is enjoying it!

SN3O5191

For the history amateurs!
If you want the translation just ask! LOL

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 17.1 degrees
Dryness: + 9
Bottled in September 2013

Clarity: Very clear
Color: Golden hue
Aroma: Assertive. Dry. Nutty.
Chestnuts, cherries, milk coffee
Body: Fluid
Taste: Very dry attack backed with pleasant alcohol.
Fruity: Apples, cherries
Alcohol not as strong as expected.
Lingers only for a while warming up the back of the palate.
Changes little with food but for a mellower turn backed with stronger alcohol.
Turns mellow with soft nuts once away from food.
As a nurukan/lukewarm shows drier but fruity facets. Turns then very dry but pleasant.

Overall: A sake for all seasons, especially with food. Can be enjoyed any temperature.
Another sake to bring at a BBQ or a raucous party!

Non Smoking Japan: Half Measures in Fujieda City Streets

SN3O5138

Whereas some cities in Shizuoka Prefecture like Shizuoka, Hamamatsu or Yaizu do try to create a non-smoking environment on their street pavements, the City of Fujieda is only reminding smokers to litter the streets with their fag ends/cigarette butts…..

SN3O5168

Mind you, the signs are everywhere, especially around the JR Station.
Prohibiting littering the pavements is good but at the same time such a warning tends to comfort smokers into their habits………………

Japanese Festivals: Nue barai Matsuri in Izu Nagaoka, Shizuoka Prefecture-第49回鵺ばらい祭

SN3O5275

The picture of the day: a smiling face inside a monster’s mouth!

SN3O5200

Yesterday I traveled all the way train from Shizuoka City to Izu Nagaoka Station by train and took the the local bus to Yu Rakkasu Park to attend an unusual Matsuri/Japanese Festival!
I managed to arrive one hour before the start of the festivities which allowed me to have a good location at the location and its people!
As in any festival the locals were selling food to the visitors!

SN3O5201

Okonomiyaki and karaage!

SN3O5202

A local specialty, big deep-fried gyoza!

SN3O5203

The stage!

SN3O5204

I saw the students from Nagaoka Junior High School arriving directly from their school!
The lady in the middle is Ms. Kamoshita, Director of the Izu No Kuni City Tourism Bureau who had faxed me the details of the vent!

SN3O5205

Mount Fuji was looking after us all the time!

SN3O5206

The program clearly indicated for everyone’s benefit!

SN3O5208

One of the great staff in attendance who kept me informed me all afternoon!

SN3O5207

A great hapi/festival coat!

SN3O5210

Great kids from Nagaoka Junior High School!
So well-mannered, ever smiling and enthusiastic!
Years ago the festival used to be performed by adults. Now it is exclusively enacted by Nagoka Junior High School!
And from this year boys and girls are equally represented!

SN3O5211

the drummers practicing before the event!

SN3O5223

The “nue/鵺”!
The nue is a monster of old Japanese lore. Check the NUE LORE HERE!
It is monster with the head of a monkey, the body of a tiger and a snake as a tail in Izu Nagaoka.
The legend was brought a lot time ago to Izu Peninsula from Kyoto by a Lord’s wife.
It is a monster/spirit thought to be a bringer of misfortune and illness.
This festival is held every year to make sure it does not appear to mistreat the local inhabitants!

SN3O5212

Great kids again including some big boys!

SN3O5224

One of the very old drums used during the festival!

SN3O5225

A last practice!

SN3O5226

But before the Nue Dance we witnessed a Japanese archery/Kyuudou/弓道 demonstration, which an integral part of the festival, held by the local Japanese Archery Association!

SN3O5229

These two gentlemen might be of a grand age but they did not miss their target!

SN3O5230

Male archers!

SN3O5233

And female archers!

SN3O5235

The nue did not stand a chance!
The target made of paper was subsequently shredded into small pieces to be distributed among the onlookers for good luck!
I got mine, which might come useful when facing the home dragon!

SN3O5236

By then the nue dancers had got ready and were coming out of the changing room!

SN3O5237

Some of the costumes had to be carried by hand!

SN3O5238

Samurais!

SN3O5239

I would like to thank these two young ladies who were so kind to answer this strange foreigner’s questions!

SN3O5240

Peace!

SN3O5241

Getting ready in the cold wind!

SN3O5242

The choreographer giving his last advice!

SN3O5243

And the dance starts!

SN3O5244

The nue and its minions ready to pounce!

SN3O5245

The fever went up a grade with the drumming!

SN3O5249

The nue’s minions are taunting the samurai!

SN3O5274

Mind you the kids inside are no monsters!

SN3O5292

The nue has crept among its minions!

SN3O5288

The minions first attempt to frighten the onlookers!

SN3O5247

There must be some kind of hierarchy among the minions as a few carry big tail snakes!

SN3O5252

The minions are attacking!

SN3O5294

Why have they stopped?

SN3O5250

This is the reason!

SN3O5253

The samurai have come to defend the onlookers by first loosing arrows!

SN3O5293

But the nue’s minions are undaunted and chase the samurai who have to unsheathe their swors!

SN3O5271

All the while the nue is looking at the action from a safe distance!

SN3O5280

Nothing frightening about these two sweet young ladies!

SN3O5270

While the nue kept looking at the action I crept behind it for some photoes!

SN3O5248

Big and horrible tail!

SN3O5273

Nasty head!

SN3O5257

The samurai were starting to get the upper hand!

SN3O5254

Take that!

SN3O5256

The nue’s minons were getting killed one by one!

SN3O5266

The nue’s minoons had all been cut down!

SN3O5289

The Nue still did not intervene!

SN3O5267

Things seemed to be all but lost…

SN3O5296

But this is when the Nue finally came into the fray!

SN3O5264

The drummers lustily encouraged the samurais!

SN3O5276

But the onlookers started throwing beans at it!

SN3O5259

The Nue roars back into the fight!

SN3O5297

But the samurais show no fear!

SN3O5263

The Nue is struck with fear!

SN3O5262

The samurais have started their killing dance!

SN3O5261

The Nue has no chance!

SN3O5260

The Nue is finally down!

SN3O5268

The Town and its citizens are saved again this year!

SN3O5269

Well done, lads and gals!

SN3O5277

The onlookers picking the beans which contributed to the demise of the Nue!

SN3O5283

The two choreographers who teach the kids every year!
They are brothers and volunteers.
As the second generation of choreographers they confided that they are aiming at teaching the next generation to make sure the Festival outlives them!
Well done, gentlemen!

SN3O5278

All the while local geishas working at the hot springs establishments had been stoically waiting for their turn in the cold!

SN3O5286

And they graciously danced for all!
Don’t ask me why I chose this particular lady! LOL

SN3O5287

The Nue mascot!

Looking forward to my next visit to Izu Nagaoka!
