Kirin Beer Garden

Stop by our Kirin Beer Garden, located on festival grounds features one of Japan’s most prominent and respected breweries, and among the top ten brewers in the world. Its history dates back to 1888 and in that time, the name Kirin has become synonymous in Japan and around the world with beer of the highest quality. Choose from a selection of Kirin Light or Kirin Ichiban available in bottles and on draft. See beer menu here.
