KIRIN was established in 1888 and uses a unique brewing method called First Press to deliver taste purity. First Press describes the craft of extracting only the first press of liquid from the malt, when it’s at its purest, much like extra virgin olive oil. By using only the first press of the liquid brewed from nature’s finest ingredients, the beer is “MEGUMI” (Japanese meaning if “gift”). Only KIRIN uses First Press brewing, a mark of time-honoured Japanese master craftsmanship.
Heineken beer was born when, back in 1863, 22 year-old Gerard Heineken set himself a simple mission: create the perfect beer. Gerard's relentless quest for perfection led to his discovery of the unique Heineken 'A' yeast — the secret ingredient that guarantees every glass of Heineken beer is as good as the last.

Steinlager was born from a challenge. In 1958, the infamous Black Budget cut beer imports and the challenge was put out to New Zealand brewers to produce a lager of international quality. The response was Steinlager Classic and, half a century on, with the addition of two more beers to the range, it is firmly established as New Zealand’s top-selling premium beer brand.
