Last night, Asahi Premium Beverages invited media and notable guests including Adriano Zumbo and the blokes I wake up to, Triple J’s Matt Okine and Alex Dyson, to a cocktail event to celebrate the launch of its latest beer, Asahi Soukai. Having grown up in Japan I have a strong affection for all things Japanese and there’s certainly no exception with Asahi Soukai. It’s designed for those who enjoy the premium taste of a craft beer yet want something a little lighter on the carbohydrate side. With a distinct Japanese and refreshing taste it’s set to become the mid-strength beer of choice so make sure to keep an eye out for it this summer. The event was held at Toko in Surry Hills.
