Kirin opens flagship beer hall in Tokyo until July 31


Kirin has opened Ichiban Shibori Garden, its flagship Kirin beer hall, in Toranomon, Tokyo, for a limited time only. And Japanese actress/model, Yu Aoi was on hand to celebrate the opening and try her hand at pouring a draft.

More Kirin stores will open in other cities in Japan soon and then overseas starting in China, Taiwan and Korea in mid-May.

The concept of Kirin Ichiban Shibori Garden is “A space to propose a new beer style and share happiness”.

In addition to regular draft Kirin Ichiban Shibori, on a hot day you may want to try a draft beer called “Ichiban Shibori Frozen” – it has icy foam on top of the beer so you can enjoy a new texture in your beer…

Or, perhaps a beer cocktail called “Ichiban Shibori Two-tone” that has juice or liqueur on the bottom.

It will definitely become a hot hang-out spot for salarymen and OLs this coming summer.

Period of time: Until July 31

Kirin is good beer. Good luck with this new venture! I wish it were easier to buy and drink foreign beer here as it is everywhere else in the world (outside of Tokyo and the larger cities).

I'd like beer more if I didn't know the fomb these days was chemical not a natural by product.

If it's only going to be open for a few months, then it's more like a beer TENT than a beer HALL. Save the "halls" for more permanent establishments.

Kirin is an excellent beer. When is the government going to allow the micro-breweries open market access at the local grocery store? Monopolies keep the prices artificially high.
