Born out of a desire to create a beer that would complement food, Asahi Super Dry quickly became the most popular beer in Japan – with a population of 127 million, that’s a sizeable market. Now available in over 50 countries Asahi Super Dry has made a major impact in Europe.
It is the top-selling Japanese lager in the UK. In an attempt to sustain its foothold in the US, the company introduced Asahi Super Dry Black, an American Dark Lager beer. Its Grand Kirin is an all malt and hop, true Japanese beer and weighs in at 6% ABV.
