Baird Biere Du Japon


Brewed by Baird Brewing Co.
Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan
Style: Spice/Herb/Vegetable | Ratings: 1 | Summer Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.8%
This fantastically original beer is an unique combination of Belgian brewing tradition and Japanese ingredients. The brewing grist incorporates English malted barley as a minority ingredient (49%); the others are all indigenous Japanese material (raw wheat, genmai rice, akato sugar). We borrow the Belgian brewing penchant for use of unusual spices by flavoring Biere du Japon with the following local ingredients: shoga (ginger), sansho peppercorns, and lemons (fresh peels and a little squeezed juice). Fermentation is handled by a Belgian Wit beer strain. The result is a wonderfully quenching taste of springtime in Japan.
