About Kirin Brewing Company Ltd
KIRIN was founded in 1888, in Yokohama, Japan, on the conviction of its founders that beer would become popular with Japanese people. The founders believed that brewing is an art created by people. Using state-of-the-art brewing machines, steam engines and the expert skills of international brewers, KIRIN beer was launched. For more than a century KIRIN has embodied the Japanese spirit of ingenuity and craftsmanship, respecting time-honoured traditions that harness the purity of ingredients to create premium international beers. Today it is one of Japan’s favourite local beers and globally successful in 40 countries.
KIRIN beer uses a unique brewing method called First Press to deliver purity that you can taste.
