Kirin Re-Releasing Early Beers for 100th Anniversary

To celebrate their 100th anniversary in February 2007, Kirin is bringing back a couple beers from their early history and a new anniversary beer:

The old-style Kirin Lager of the Meiji Era (1868-1912) is made as it was at the Japan Brewing Company when it started brewing Kirin Beer in 1888. The Kirin Pilsener is a Taisho Era (1912-1926) beer made as it was when the first Kirin beer factory was built in Yokohama in 1907.

On January 17th, Kirin will be releasing a limited 100th Anniversary bottled beer, and they have even more beer/campaign surprises for 2007.
