KIRIN enjoys a widespread presence in the global marketplace. In 1984, KIRIN entered the U.S. market and then in 1988, Taiwan.
Three years later, in 1991, KIRIN moved into Europe via Germany. Today, beer lovers enjoy KIRIN in over forty countries.
In 2010, KIRIN partnered with Weihenstephan Brewery—the world’s oldest brewery—to brew KIRIN ICHIBAN in Germany, boosting the company’s credentials and making it the first Weihenstephan brewed Japanese beer.
