Baird Shimaguni Stout

Baird Brewing Japan

From the brewer:

“This is the Baird version of the quintessential Irish beer style: Dry Stout. The pitch-black color and rich, roasty dryness belie the moderate gravity and alcohol content. This Stout is meant for everyday drinking – at home or at the pub.

Bryan’s Comment

I love dark beers. The average beer drinker equates dark with strong, but that is not always the case. Irish-style Dry Stouts, like Shimaguni, are strong in flavor – largely imparted from intensely roasted grains – but moderate in alcohol strength. Shimaguni Stout is the most balanced and sessionable of dark beers.

The Label

The Japanese know their nation as the ‘island country’ (Shimaguni). So too do the Irish. Ireland’s emblematic beer is Stout. The Shimaguni Stout label artwork depicts Japan and Ireland joined together by a bridge. This bridge represents both the common historical heritage of island-country consciousness and the newly shared bond of Stout brewing excellence.”
