Beer Dates in Japan

There's still not a lot of Japanese beer sold in the United States. There's even less sold around Detroit (where most of the research for BeerDates.com occurred). Big surprise. This page probably won't change very often.

If you can read Japanese, Beer in Japan looks like a good source of further information. Otherwise, try Yarri's Beer Page.

Asahi™ Breweries, Ltd.
(Tokyo, Japan)

Entry added 12 July 1998. The Asahi beers sold in the United States are actually brewed by Molson Breweries, Ltd, so they use Molson packaging dates.

Kirin Brewing Company

Entry added 2 January 1997. The Kirin beers sold in the United States are also brewed in Canada by Molson Breweries, Ltd, but distributed by Anheuser-Busch, and imported to the U.S. by Kirin USA, Inc. They use the Molson packaging dates.
