Crowned Eagle

Top marks to our Eagle brewers for topping the Kirin Ichiban taste test!

The team is this month’s best licensed brewer of the premium Japanese beer.

Every month we send samples to the Kirin Ichiban HQ in Tokyo, where it’s scored against five other brewers from the USA, Brazil, Germany and Myanmar.

Last month they were joint top with a brewer from the US – but they’ve taken the title on their own for May! It’s a fantastic effort and is down to the commitment of our teammates at Eagle Brewery who’ve been perfecting their brew.

Chris Reid, Technical brewer and Kirin Brewmaster, said: “We’ve been working very hard with their brewers over the last few months to make flavour improvements and it’s paying off. They’re a state of the art Japanese brewer with very exacting standards, so this is no mean feat!”
