Project Description


The Baird Brewery is a craft beer operation founded in 2000 by a US-Japanese husband-and-wife team in the idyllic Shuzenji area on the Izu peninsular, southwest of Tokyo. My visit was very short but I was able to spend some time with the staff as they brewed, cleaned, bottled and served the beer. I hope my images help tell then amazing “Baird Story” and reflect some of the passion and painstaking care of the staff and everyone involved with the brewery. Traditional floor-malted barley, the exclusive use of whole flower hops, and minimally treated soft local water contribute a wholesome and unmistakably authentic character to Baird Beer.
