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

“Beer has brought so much happiness and meaning to my life. I hope you can taste a passion for living in all Baird Beer. Brewing characterful beer is to us one small affirmation of the beauty of it all. ”

Ingredients

Water Soft, Cleanly Flavorful, Local

Sugar Japanese Kokuto (Dark Cane) & Korizato (Rock Candy)
Hops Whole Flower Cones – Various Varieties
Yeast House Belgian Strain

Bryan's Brewing Notes

If beer is good at one thing it’s helping people to feel the joy of the moment. The Belgians are perhaps the best at putting their beer and culinary culture to the service of joyful living. Joie de Vivre is our tribute to Belgium’s joyous beer culture.

The Belgian beer landscape is dotted with monastic breweries that have created many unique beer styles over the long course of their brewing history. One such style is a Belgian Dubbel. Dark red to brown in color, Dubbels tend to be relatively strong in gravity and alcohol, medium in body, with flavor notes of caramel, chocolate and pit fruit.

Joie de Vivre is our Baird version of a Belgian-style Dubbel. It represents a sort of celebration of the religious history that informs large segments of world beer culture. May it help you to find your inner and joyful being!
