• About KIRIN

    Japan's Leading Brewer Since 1888.

    KIRIN ICHIBAN is a beer developed by Kirin Brewery, Japan’s leading brewer with over 100 years of history, since 1888.

    Kirin Brewery has been through challenging circumstances in its early years, but never failed to adapt to the diverse change in business climate. They were constantly focused on two things: customers and quality.

    Since then, Kirin Brewery has become synonymous in Japan and around the world, as the producer of beers of the highest quality.

    With Kirin Brewery’s continuous effort to secure premium quality malt and hops, as well as its advanced brewing facilities and technology, they launched KIRIN ICHIBAN, now Japan’s No.1 100% Malt “First Press” beer of choice in over 40 countries worldwide.
