Kirin Ichiban Shibori Beer
Kirin Ichiban Shibori Beer 一番搾りビール was introduced in 1990 and I think it was the biggest brand in Japan until Asahi Dry took over that title. It remains very popular and the concept for its good taste is the following. During the beer production process, wort is separated from the mash solids. It is squeezed out if you will. This is done more than once on the same mash, but Kirin only uses the first separation for Ichiban Shibori beer, and that is what ichiban shibori means in Japanese - first press, first separation or more simply the first wort. キリン 一番搾り製法
