Asahi brewery was founded in 1889 by Komakichi Torii under the name of the Osaka Beer Company, bringing the latest brewing technology from major German brewers to attempt to create a distinct Japanese style of beer.

In 1987, Asahi Super Dry was introduced, a product which created a revolution in the beer industry in Japan. The hugely successful launch of Asahi Super Dry created significant demand for dry beer and led Asahi to become Japan's largest beer manufacturer today.
