Akashi Brewery is one of Japan’s oldest and most historic breweries dating back 300 years. They have even won prizes for three of its brews in the 2010 International Beer Cup. The brewery has now announced the latest addition to their beer line-up, and it’s certainly something anime fans might love. Introducing the “Moe Beer”
Each bottle of Moe Beer comes with its own moe-style mascot, and they will be sold as 6-packs, with each bottle featuring a different moe character. The box will include: two bottles of Akashi Kaigan Beer (明石海岸ビール), two bottles of Akashi no Kimi (明石の君), and two bottles of Akashi Yuukyu no Toki (明石悠久の刻).
Each type of beer comes with two characters:
Akashi Kaigan Beer (Pilsner): A bottom-fermented beer crafted with hops; the world’s most popular type of beer also known as a “wheat beer” or “white beer.” The finished product is easy to drink and preserves the perfect amount of the hops’ flavor and aroma.
Akashi no Kimi Beer (Weizen): A top-fermented beer crafted with yeast. A large amount of malted wheat is used in addition to malted barley in its production. Akashi no Kimi Beer is distinctive for its partially translucent, light brown color and white bubbles.
Akashi Yuukyu no Toki (Schwarzbier): A dark lager crafted with superior-quality hops. It’s refreshing to drink with its characteristic body and perfect balance of sweetness. The brewery encourages people who normally shy away from black beers to try it. Since its name means “Eternal Time,” you can catch the fragrance of history from this brew.
Now ain’t that just moe?! The six-pack box costs 3,000 yen, while the 3-pack costs 1,500 yen. Orders can be placed on the brewery’s online store.
