Baird Brewing Company
This past weekend, to celebrate Mike's 30th birthday (!), we went to Numazu to visit Baird Beer's Numazu Fishmarket Taproom. I first learned of the craft brewery and pub from this blog, and their rave reviews were spot-on. Microbrews (especially good ones) aren't always easy to find in Japan, and even though it was a bit of a drive to get there, it was completely worth it, Baird Beer is fantastic!
They have a huge selection to choose from, and I liked every one that I tasted, but my favorite was probably the Morning Coffee Stout. So good. I also loved the beer descriptions, particularly the one for the Obatarian Strong English Ale. I laughed out loud in the pub as I read it. And if you are in Japan, but can't make it to Numazu or Tokyo, you are still in luck. They have an on-line shop where you can order their regular and seasonal beer selections and get them shipped right to your door!
