Baird O-Bosan Ale


Brewed by Baird Brewing Co.
Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan
Style: Abbey Dubbel | Ratings: 6 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.5%
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. If this style had been brewed in Japan, it undoubtedly would have been crafted by some beer-loving sect of Buddhist monks (O-Bosan). Sadly, it hadnít been. The Baird brewers have stepped in to fill the void. Our O-Bosan Ale is a celebration of the religious history that informs large segments of beer culture. May it help you to find your inner being!
