Free Beer? Is there any twist? Well the twist is you get an exceptional great tour of Kirin Brewery and find out more about the history of the brand. You get an English booklet, so even though the tour is in Japanese you can easily...More

We took the tour. It's in Japanese but they supply an English summary on paper. Better book in advance! Impressive and entertaining guided tour through the building and at the same time through the beer making progress. Beer and non-alcoholic beverages at the end.
