Kirin Brewery is creating a new way to enjoy beer by adding a frozen foam on top of each draft to keep the drink icy cold.
So spring just arrived, but is it too soon to start thinking about summer already? The season is pretty great: Nice weather, outdoor concerts, a plethora of festivals, allergies are gone, and a lot of delicious fruits are in season. We also get to enjoy snacks like 7-Eleven Slurpees, ice cream, frozen yogurt … and if you happen to be in Japan, you can also add a Kirin beer with frozen foam head to that list.
Kirin Brewery is adding to its Ichiban Shibori lineup for restaurants around Japan in May with a new frozen draft that is topped with an ice cold foam on every pint. The tap machine freezes the head of a beer at 23 degrees Fahrenheit (or -5 degrees Celcius) and is added to the top of the beer like soft served ice cream. According to Kirin, this helps to keep your pints cold for up to an extra 30 minutes if you’re a sipper kind of drinker, or you can munch into it like fro-yo. Beer-flavored ice cream? Sign us up!
