Did you know that in Japan Kirin is always drank from a glass. They don’t drink it from the bottle. Kirin’s pure, clean taste is the perfect complement to refined traditional Japanese cuisine such as this Spicy Vegan Dragon Rolls, the bold flavors of modern Asian food and other flavor-forward dishes.
One of Japan’s oldest breweries, with a history dating back to 1888. The mythical Kirin Beast is considered a good omen of serenity and prosperity. In Japan, when everyone is ready to drink, they salute by saying “kanpai.” Kirin is a great beer and definitely needs to be served in a glass. It pairs perfectly with an Japanese cuisine especially my favorite sushi.
I always think my beer should match my food. When eating Czech food I look for a good plisner or bock. When it comes to sushi a bock wouldn’t fit at all. Kirin is a perfect match to sushi. but the light version is better and goes well with noodles. We enjoyed Kirin with a few friends and they were surprised at the customs and how well Kirin went with the Spicy Vegan Dragon Roll.
Enjoy Kirin Ichiban in Japan but it is now available in select U.S. locations! Single wort brewing process. All malt formula using only the finest two-row barley malt. European noble hops. A distinctively rich flavor, smooth finish, no bitter aftertaste. For the Spicy Vegan Dragon Roll here is the recipe and how to. Don’t forget it is Japanese tradition to always serve others before yourself. When in doubt fill their beer first then yours.Print
