Kirin to bring Brooklyn craft beer to Japan

TOKYO -- Kirin Brewery will partner with Brooklyn Brewery to produce and sell the New York-based company's popular craft beer in Japan and Brazil starting next year.

In Japan, the two companies plan to set up a joint venture next January, with the Kirin Holdings unit expected to take a majority stake. The U.S. company's signature Brooklyn Lager, known for its rich flavor, will be produced at Kirin factories -- in cans, bottles and kegs for eateries -- and be sold exclusively by Kirin through high-end supermarkets and liquor stores as well as restaurants and bars. A bottle will likely cost around 400 yen to 500 yen ($3.90 to $4.90).
