From the shores of Okinawa, Japan, to our own, Asian Beer Online is brewing up a change in the Australian drinks market with the introduction of the ‘champagne of beers’, Orion Premium Draft Beer. Produced with exacting care, this craft beer is sure to satisfy Australian palates this summer, with its light, refreshing taste of mild citrus, grassy and biscuity malt flavours, and low levels of bitterness. Now available in selected restaurants and from online store Asian Beer Online, Orion Premium Draft Beer is produced on the unique sub-tropical Japanese island of Okinawa and embodies the island’s characteristics: fresh, natural and leaving a lasting impression. It is the only mainstream Japanese beer to be exclusively brewed and bottled in Japan. “Premium craft beers are becoming increasingly more popular, with the consumption of craft beer increasing by six per cent every year. Australians are growing more aware of the local and international craft beer market and the array of choices available,” states Tim Brotherton, Owner of Asian Beer Online, who imports the beer.
The Orion state-of-the-art brewery, located in the charming island of Okinawa, is the fifth largest beer brewery in Japan, producing 72 million litres of fresh beer each year. Andre Bishop, Sake Samurai, Sake Master and owner of Nihonshu Sake Bar, Izakaya Chuji and Kumo Izakaya restaurants, Melbourne, states: “Orion Premium Draft Beer is a light and refreshing Asian beer with more body and character than many other Japanese brands. Its easy and smooth style really complements Asian cuisine and lighter meats such as chicken, pork or fish. I advise customers to enjoy Orion with my BBQ Pork Belly or Japanese Fried Chicken dishes.”
