No Fear, Just Beer.

We will not brew vapid beer.

We are not afraid of not appealing to everyone.

The Baird portfolio celebrates the diversity inherent in beer.

Year-Round

Baird Beer brewers craft a diverse and balanced lineup of year-round styles.

While each beer provides a distinct and unique flavor experience, all of our styles share a certain “House” character stemming from a common brewing philosophy.

Seasonal

Beer is the most diverse beverage on earth. We celebrate this diversity through our seasonal series brewing efforts. Inspiration for our seasonal brewing comes from many sources. Often times we create a beer in order to make use of some wonderful local ingredient that is fresh and in season.

Other times we feel the urge to re-create historical styles that are classics but hard to come by these days. Sometimes irreverence takes control and we brew batches that thumb the nose at established style parameters.

The possibilities in beer are really limitless.

Seasonal

Brewer’s Passion Series

This series represents our brewer’s playground. In the playground, we have much small-system equipment with which to play. Our brewing play is free and fun-loving and passionate. You can taste the passion!

We have no set calendar for releases in this small-batch brewing series. In fact, we often don’t announce releases here because quantity is so limited.  Many Brewer’s Passion beers are draught-only and available exclusively at our Baird Taproom pubs and other domestic Japan restaurant and pub accounts.
