◇Superior Minimally Processed Ingredients:
Traditional floor-malted barley, the exclusive use of whole flower hops, and minimally treated soft Numazu water contribute a wholesome and unmistakable character to Baird Beer.
◆Keg & Bottle Conditioning:
All Baird Beer is unfiltered and undergoes a secondary fermentation and conditioning in the kegs or bottles from which it is served. This produces a completely natural carbonation that is soft yet effervescent. Moreover, the beer remains alive and evolving until drinking time.
◇Aroma & Dry Hopping:
The brewers of Baird Beer love the spicy and fruity aromas of hops! Consequently, we add ample quantities of whole flower hops to the wort at the end of kettle boil to capture these wonderful smells. Additionally, many of our beers are hopped during conditioning in a traditional practice known as ‘dry hopping.’ This produces an exquisite bouquet that is a defining characteristic of Baird Beer.
The flavor characteristics of a well-crafted beer can be enjoyed in full only if the beer is dispensed at the appropriate temperature and at the proper level of carbonation. We serve Baird Beer in our brewery-owned Taprooms at cellar-to-cool temperatures with appropriate levels of natural carbonation. These serving practices allow the beers’ essential flavors to take center stage.
