KIRIN Ichiban Shibori Garden Brewer's Spirit

Ichiban Shibori means

100% malt, first press beer. KIRIN ICHIBAN.

Kirin Ichiban is brewed from only malt, hops and water.
Unlike other beers, only the first press of the wort is used.
That's why it's called Ichiban – meaning "first" and "best" in Japanese.
"Ichiban Shibori" is a unique method of brewing beer at its purest from a single pure ingredient: 100% malt.
Place :Ume Kita Hiroba Square @ Grand Front Osaka (north side of JR Osaka Station)

Meat ball and salad (with Watercress and Roasted beef) was really nice!
