RateBeer.com -- Correct Baird / Mikkeller Fruitful Life Collaboration AleBaird / Mikkeller Fruitful Life Collaboration Ale

One of the best aspects of working in the craft beer industry is the friendly spirit of cooperation that exists among brewers. This spirit manifests itself in many ways, none more indicative than collaboration brewing. Our most recent collaborative brew was in partnership with the Mikkeller guys (idiosyncratic Danish “gypsy” brewers of world renown). Brew day was December 10, 2012 at the Baird Brewery in Numazu. It was a fruitful one. The charge from Mikkel was: “Let’s brew a distinctive beer incorporating as many fresh local ingredients as you can get your hands on.” Into the Heda orchards of Nagakura-san we went, scavenging five types of in-season citrus fruit (aoshima mikan, hassaku, kabosu, yuzu and lemon). In addition to the fruit, we brewed with three types of Japanese sugar (korizato, akato, sudakito) as well as raw wheat from Saitama. The hops we used were all fruit-accented varieties (Summit, Nelson Sauvin, Cascade, NZ Cascade, Motueka). We fermented the wort with our Belgian yeast strain and then krausened at packaging with our Single-Take Session Ale.
