Asahi's new plant begins shipments.

Asahi Breweries, Ltd., recently announced that it began shipping Asahi Draft "Super Dry" beer from its new plant--the largest brewery in Asia.

The Asahi Brewery Ibaraki was completed in January and is the company's eighth facility.

"Consumer demand for Asahi Super Dry has grown so dramatically since its introduction in March 1987, that is required us to build the new Ibaraki plant," explained Shigeyuki Yoshioki, vice president and general manager, Asahi Breweries, U.S.A. "In fact, we refitted our other seven plants to handle the production needed and it still was not enough."
