"Celebrating Beer"
Baird Brewing is a joint partnership company founded in 2000 in Numazu, Japan by the husband & wife team of Bryan and Sayuri Baird.
We are a family company born of a deep passion for beer and a great reverence for brewing history, tradition and culture.
Our motto is Celebrating Beer.
This, to us, means the comprehensive enjoyment of beer in a way that enhances the overall experience of life.
Brewed with painstaking care,
passion and reverence for tradition.
Baird Beer is a celebratory experience in flavor.
The flavors of malt and hops and yeast are highlighted and celebrated;
they are not eviscerated by over-processing in the brewery.
We craft Baird Beer in small batches with painstaking care,
passion and both reverence and irreverence for tradition.
We hope you enjoy imbibing Baird Beer as much as we enjoy crafting it.

It’s good we didn’t know, though, because had we known we likely would not have pursued the dream – and that would have been a shame.   Our early business struggles at the Fishmarket Taproom had an important silver lining – it reinforced to us the bedrock importance of what we call the 3-Ps: Passion, Philosophy, Perseverance.
