Dear Taproom Friend & Baird Beer Enthusiast:
I, like perhaps many others, didn’t realize the enormity of the role and responsibility of fatherhood until I became a member of the fraternity myself. Only then did I fully and comprehensively appreciate all that my Dad had done for me over the many years. It is with love and gratitude, then, that the brewers of Baird Beer have crafted Father’s Day Ale.
New Baird Beer Seasonal Release:
*Father’s Day Ale (ABV 5.5%):
Much of beer brewing in history has been conducted in monastery settings, by the sect fathers. Monastery father-brewers in Belgium were known to brew a refreshing and wholesome table-beer for their own consumption known as Patersbier (father’s beer). This history is the direct inspiration of our Father’s Day Ale.
Father’s Day Ale is a very simple recipe: one malt (floor-malted Pilsner), two hops (Tradition and Saaz). It is fermented with our Belgian witbier yeast strain and then secondarily fermented with the same strain in package. It is lightly fruity and quenchingly effervescent. It is a gift to all of you fathers out there; you deserve at the very least a wonderful beer on Father’s Day.
Father’s Day Ale is available both in bottles (630 ml) and kegs. It will begin pouring from the taps of fine beer establishments all over Japan beginning Father’s Day (Sunday, June 17).
Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
