[Kirin Factory Tour (Kirin Brewery Nagoya)]

A factory tour to discover the secret of making delicious beer

One of several factory tours of Kirin breweries, the "Kirin Ichiban Brewery Tour" runs every day except when the place is closed. You can watch the production process and discover the secret of Kirin's great taste. Taste-test and compare the first and second press wort, the malt, and (after the tour) the final product, "Kirin Beer (First Press)". You will be sure to enjoy the allure of beer to the full here. With the Factory Shop (where you will find rare items only available to factory tour visitors) and the BREWER'S HOUSE next door (where you can enjoy foods that go with beer perfectly), there is more than enough for you to enjoy here! Soft drinks are available during tasting, so there's no need to worry even if you don't drink!
* Reservation required for the tour. In addition, the production line is closed on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, so visitors on those days will be shown videos. Please check the website for details.
