Orion Brewery

Orion beer (pronounced or-ee-on)「オリオンビール」 is the 5th most popular selling beer in Japan and controls a majority share of beer consumption in Okinawa.

Orion was founded in 1957 and started with brewing a traditional German-style beer, but the company’s popularity took off when they changed the brew to become a more American-style beer.

We went on a tour of the brewery at Naha, Okinawa.

At the end of the tour, we were each given a coupon to exchange for either a beer or soft drink, and some snacks/nuts.

I’m not really a fan of beer but this beer tastes quite light, smooth and refreshing!

Those who don’t drink beer can choose to drink lemon tea instead (also Orion brand).
