Formerly brewed at Baird Brewing Co.
Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan
Strawberry Field Milk Stout (ABV 4.7%) is an unique flavor combination of roasted barley- and wheat-malts, lactose (milk sugar), English Kent Golding and Fuggle hops and, of course, fresh Shizuoka strawberries (1 kg per 20 liters wort). The tart flavor and piquant aroma of the strawberries harmonizes ever so delicately with the roasty and sweet character of the malt and they complement with a deft touch the earthy and almost strawberry-like fruity component of the English hops. The milk sugar serves to add body, texture and depth. All of this is in a beer of rather modest gravity and mild alcohol content. Much thanks for this beer is owed to our friends at Serizawa Saketen whose family connections enabled us a glorious morning of strawberry picking!
