History of beer Kirin
The beginnings of this beer go back to 1870, when Johan Thoresen found a spring in Yokohama that inspired him to open his own brewery. After many failures, the brewery finally adopted its current name in 1888. The name comes from Japanese mythology and represents a half-dragon horse.
As early as 1990, it was launched on the market and began to succeed thanks to its unique brewing technique, the Shibori.
