legacy liquor store

freshly stocked at legacy liquor store in vancouver:

It all began in 1997 when Bryan and Sayuri Baird quit their jobs and headed to the Pacific Northwest, ground zero for the U.S. craft beer renaissance, to study brewing. Enter 2000, and the Numazu Fishmarket Taproom opens in Tokyo with no customers, just workers, and after six months of local indifference they knew they needed more money to survive. Baird Brewing Company was then incorporated with seed money from friends and family, and in 2003 began to expand the brewery in order to service the thirsty Tokyo market, installing a 250-litre brewing system on the first floor. This marked the dawn of their brand artwork, developed by graphic designer Eiko Nishida, who continues to this day to passionately craft each piece. The inaugural brew at the new facility was poured on January 1, 2006, coinciding with the 5-year anniversary of the debut of Baird Beer at the Fishmarket Taproom. Baird eventually began exporting in 2008, shipping to the United States, and has since gained import partners and niche markets in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong, with the list continuing to grow.

Baird Brewing Numaza Lager - $5.65
Clean, soft and flavourful local water combines with floor-malted barley and a mix of world hops to yield afantastically round yet snappy lager that drinks rich and full like an ale. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is a true throw-back lager.

Baird Brewing Rising Sun Pale Ale - $5.65

This hoppy, brisk and refreshing pale ale is indescribably complex, but holds tenaciously to Japan's primeaesthetic value—balance. It’s a perfect beer for drinking now, later, tomorrow, the next day and every day after that.

Baird Brewing Suruga Bay Imperial IPA - $5.95
This extraordinarily complex yet balanced Double IPA is dry-hopped twice with whole flower cones and then krausened at packaging. The hop character (bitterness, flavour, aroma) is profound, vast and impactful like the local Suruga Bay after which it is named.
