More Spring Seasonal Releases: Four Sisters & Pacific Century
April 12, 2012
Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:
Every season is a good season for characterful craft beer; spring, though, being a time of new beginnings, seems a particularly propitious season for the release of exciting and innovative beer styles. Today I am happy to announce the 2012 release of two terrific spring seasonal brews: Four Sisters Spring Bock and Pacific Century Citrus IPA.
New Baird Beer Seasonal Releases:
*Four Sisters Spring Bock 2012 (ABV 7.5%):
Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock is brewed in the spirit of a German Maibock, albeit one of the type that was brewed centuries ago in the city of Einbeck and that was noted for its generous use of malted wheat. Four Sisters Spring Bock sports a deep copper-gold color and enjoys a sweet floral nose from aroma additions of German Hersbrucker hops. In the mouth, a rich malty character will introduce itself before quickly giving way to an extremely smooth, round finish in which a hint of honeyed-malt flavor and warm alcohol character lingers.
Four Sisters Spring bock is available on draught and a small quantity of bottles (630 ml) will be for sale through our brewery E-shop.
*Pacific Century Citrus IPA 2012 (ABV 7.5%):
We have brewed this unique IPA annually for the past several years, each time combining a different local citrus fruit with a changing blend of hop varieties. This year we chose aoshima mikans as the citrus fruit and combined them with the following blend of hops: Magnum, Nelson Sauvin, Cascade, Santiam and Ahtanum. The result is a deeply complex IPA that enjoys a nuanced and layered citrus-fruit character.
Pacific Century Citrus IPA is available in both kegs and bottles (630 ml). Quantities are limited and sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
