"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 was the 20th century Baby Boom generation that can be credited with sparking what today has become a world-wide beer renaissance. Generation X, to which we belong, embraced craft beer in increasing numbers and with heightened enthusiasm. But it’s the Millennial generation (those born between 1980 and 2000) that is taking the craft beer movement mainstream.   In the United States, the market for craft beer has doubled in size since 2010. In calendar year 2014, for the very first time, craft beer volume broke into double digits, accounting for 11 percent of the U.S. beer market (19% if counted on a sales revenue basis). The projections are for craft beer volume to hit 20 percent by […]
