Asahi Breweries, Ltd. was originally known as the Osaka Beer Company, founded in 1889, and Asahi beer was produced later in 1891. The name Asahi (朝日) means morning sun. Asahi Breweries, Ltd. developed its flagship product, Asahi Super Dry in 1983, to become one of the most popular brands in the domestic beer market.
Asahi Breweries has eight factories in Japan, but most are difficult to reach. Fortunately, the Nagoya factory, is just a short 15-minutes train ride from Nagoya Station, to Shinmoriyama Station. From there it's about an 18-minute walk or short taxi ride. It makes for a perfect day-trip for beer lovers or anyone who wants to enjoy a short tour in Nagoya!
