Japanese beer nostalgia from my trip to Tokyo
One way to remember my best free experience in Tokyo, at the Kirin Brewery in 2017
On the 9th of March, 2017, I had the great fortune to visit the Kirin Brewery. Oh my, it was heaven! Probably the best free thing I did in Tokyo. Yup, you read that right, the tour was FREE!
The map of heaven at the gate to heaven, then me in heaven...and I'm still alive! Do I make a good Kirin Poster Girl?
To pay homage to this wonderful event in my history, I decided to order some Kirin beers to celebrate my own little Kirin Beer Day and relive that wonderful afternoon.
The place I ordered them from were one short, so they threw in an Asahi to make up the balance. I'm stoked it is a 2020 Olympics bottle too, basically a collectors item!
One Tokyo 2020 Olympics bottle of Asahi beer, amongst it's Kirin beer friends, awwww.
At tour's end, you're allowed 3 free tasters per person, yes these pints were their "tasting" size...the catch, you had 30mins to drink them! We certainly walked on air all the way back to our hotel...
I was stoked to find the bottles I got delivered were the genuine imported article, so I've definitely been getting the nostalgic vibes I was looking for. I'm keen to save the Asahi and buy some local ones and test the taste difference, I'm super curious!
What's your favourite Japanese beer?
