About ASAHI SUPER DRY®
Inspired by the dry taste of sake, we created a beer born out of curiosity, Asahi Super Dry® which quickly became and remains Japan’s no.1 selling beer. Asahi Super Dry® is brewed at Asahi-owned breweries using the finest malted barley, hops, yeast and rice to give it a dry, crisp taste and quick, clean finish that never lingers. We call it Karakuchi.
