The Label Speaks

There is a joyous and festive atmosphere at one of our Taproom pubs during the holiday season. The curmudgeonly scrooge in the foreground, however, is having none of it. He just wants to belch out to everyone a surly Bakayaro! He truly is in a sour, insolent and obstinate mood. The kanji characters in the label, henkutsu (偏屈), further express this.

Bryan's Comment

It’s a Baird tradition to greet each New Year with a ‘First-brewed’ (Hatsu-jozo) celebratory beer. We’re pleased to welcome 2018 with a reverentially irreverent hybrid take on an IPA – India Pale Lager. Happy drinking!

Ingredients

Water Soft, Cleanly Flavorful, Local
Malted Grain Floor-malted Pilsen, Vienna, Munich
Un-malted Grain None
Sugar Japanese Korizato (Rock Candy)
Hops Whole Flower Cones – Various Varieties
Yeast House North American Lager Strain

Bryan's Brewing Notes

This year’s “First Brewed” is formulated as a hoppy India Pale Ale but fermented with a lager yeast, becoming an India Pale Lager. The grist bill combines floor-malted Pilsen with a deft touch of bready Vienna & Munich character malts. 75 IBUs of all-German hops in the kettle followed by a single round of dry-hopping in the conditioning tank with equal portions of all five hop varieties leaves no doubt about the India Pale-nature of this brew. Fermentation with our house Lager yeast imparts a clean, round flavor characteristic of Lager brews. Wishing you a beery happy 2018!
