In Japan I have already visited Yebisu, Suntory Malts and Sapporo beer factories, now the Asahi factory in Osaka.
Last summer I enjoyed visiting the Asahi Extra Cold Bars around Japan, we made it to all 4 before they closed and received some free beer as a thank you. (Previous posts here).
It was uncertain wether they would return again this year, but off the success of last years campaign they are back! This time with 8 bars!
I hope I can visit the Kyoto and Tokyo bars before they close!
In summer J and I visited all 4 Asahi Extra Cold bars in Japan, see here!
Before they closed we showed our 4 VIP cards and gave our names and addresses at the Osaka bar, in return a few weeks later we received beer vouchers.
We eventually filled these in and posted them off again.
Thank you Asahi!
I am definitely my fathers daughter when it comes to beer and am a bit partial to a cold glass of refreshing amber nectar.
In this heat (33 degrees!) you can’t beat it, and for the summer only Asahi have opened four extra cold bars around Japan where the beer is served around -2 degrees.
We first stumbled across one in the Ginza, Tokyo in June.
Even though we have been to all 4 bars now I am missing my members card from Tokyo as I didn’t do the master class there.
I think I will have to venture back before they close in mid September! Rumour is if you have all 4 they will deliver you beer direct from the factory within 3 days of brewing so it is fresh and delicious!
But even if not it was a lot of fun visiting them in each city and learning how to pour a Japanese beer, maybe I can get a bar job now?!
