Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:
The craft beer rumor mill has been rife with whispers of a new Tokyo-area Taproom. The scuttlebutt, it turns out, is true. Baird Brewing will be opening its second Tokyo Taproom in a lovely area of Harajuku this coming August (Saturday, August 8 is the hoped-for grand opening date). The Harajuku Taproom will be a sort of kushi-yaki beer bar with great grilled skewers, 15 Baird Beer taps and two Baird Beer real ale handpumps. 35 to 40 seats will be mostly counter seats with the exception of a sofa area and one large table. Specific details regarding operating hours and other matters will be announced shortly.
Also, in conjunction with this business expansion, we are on the lookout for good personnel. It you are an individual who is passionate about a career in the craft beer-restaurant industry, speak Japanese at an adequate level and possess a Japan work visa, please send along a cover letter and resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are hiring for both the Harajuku and Nakameguro Taprooms.
Fishmarket Taproom 9-Year Anniversary Celebration (July 18 – 20):
We will be celebrating the 9-year birthday of our Numazu Fishmarket Taproom on the three-day holiday weekend of Saturday, July 18 through Monday, July 20. Highlights of the weekend festivities include:
*Baird Fruit & Beer Festival
*1,500 yen all-you-can-eat beer-inspired buffet (our new chef, Michiru, has hit the ground running and this promises to be an extraordinary treat)
*Baird brewery tours twice a day (2:00 pm and 4:00 pm)
*Outdoor yaki-tori grilling below the Taproom (everyday, 3:00 – 7:00 pm)
*Saturday evening live music
Please mark your calendar and plan a festive summer trip to idyllic Numazu for what promises to be a great beer bonanza! More detailed beer and event information will be forthcoming in an upcoming bulletin.
