Hops Direct Diana & Drew

Hops Direct and Baird Beer have teamed up to offer the listeners to this podcast a sample of hops, a free beer, and free VIP tour at Baird Beer Shuzenji Taproom. Hops Direct are one of America’s independently owner hop growers and sellers, shipping all over the world. Yes, including to Japan.

Go to the Baird Beer Shuzenji Taproom anytime between March 30th and the end of Golden Week (May 6th) and answer the following questions to claim your beer and or hops.

  1. What kind of hops are being given away?
  2. How many generations old is Hops Direct?

Hops are limited to one sample per person and the beer offer is only available at Baird Beer Shuzenji Taproom. The beer is one 300ml of anything that is on the menu, excluding bottles.

With so many events going on though during April, there is no excuse not to go down there.
