TOKYO -- Kirin Holdings will export Japanese craft beer to Taiwan within the year, tapping into a growing market driven by younger drinkers.

Five styles of the Spring Valley Brewery brand will be offered in pours of slightly less than 300 ml for around 180 New Taiwan dollars ($6), a slight premium over drinks from leading local brewers. The beer will be available at about 100 eateries of various types, not just those serving Japanese food.
