A very easy style but interesting tour with pleasant employees throughout.
Nice tasting at the end and opportunity to buy Asahi souveniers.
Asahi is the way forward!
You know it makes sense!

Well worth the visit
Dec 2019
We had a bit of a mess up in the beginning. The website says to ring in advance if you would like to be apart of the English speaking tour so we did and booked for 12pm the next day. When we got there to start the tour there was no booking for us and there wasn’t even a tour at 12pm. Luckily they put us on the 1pm tour so we went and got some lunch while we waited. We downloaded an app on our phones and listened to the tour on there. However the guide was also really good and added some English in there for us too which I thought was great. My partner loves asahi beer so he really enjoyed seeing how the production all worked and the tastings at the end were fantastic.

Strictly reservations required
Sep 2019
After taking the trouble to travel all the way there from Namba, we were told tour is strictly by reservations only. The earliest available tour would be 2.5hrs wait, so we asked if we could join other groups to tour the brewery but we turned down (Orion brewery in Okinawa allowed this and is much more friendly). Apparently all tour has to be private tour, even if it means only 1 person or 2 persons in one tour. Feels like a waste of resources and very inflexible.

As there is nothing to do in the surrounding areas, we were wondering how we could wait 2.5hrs for the tour. We went ahead to visit the shops, bought some plum wine and goodies (t-shirts etc) but 2.5hrs is too long to shop in their small shop.

As there is a 'canteen'/ beer tasting area, we asked if we could sit and have a beer while waiting for the tour. The staff answered in a rigid manner with slightly raised voice - NO.

We felt unwelcome and no assistance were given for self-visiting visitors (they host many local tour buses throughout our time there). We are utterly disappointed as no options were given for us to spend our 2.5hrs waiting time for their earliest available tour.

Only visit if you could make a reservations before visiting.

Great insight on how the famous beer is made
Sep 2019 • Family
I also went to the Kirin Beer Factory your, but this one is slightly different in that you get to see the robots at work, which the kids will likely enjoy. We joined a Japanese tour, but you can download an app that allows you to listen to the English versions at the different points.

At the end of the tour, each person is allowed up to 3 drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) which was a bonus.

Great tour and beer!
Jul 2018 • Couples
I found this while looking for things to do in Osaka while we were on our honeymoon. As avid beer drinkers, my husband and I were very excited for this tour. Even better that it was completely free! We downloaded an app on our phones to listen to the English audio for the tour and brought our own headphones, as I had read previous reviews saying they had limited amounts of devices and headsets. This worked out perfectly! There is definitely less info in the English tour than if you could understand Japanese, but that was okay since the whole tour was free. The beer at the end was great, my husband and I drank all 6 of our beers in the 20 minutes allotted and even bought some more from the gift shop on our way out to drink on our way back to the train station! The gift shop had some awesome options that were surprisingly affordable and there were lots of fun props to take pictures with on your way out. Highly recommend!

A lot of fun and samples to boot!
Mar 2019 • Couples
We found this on their website and called to book the English tour. We arrived and checked in and were given a paper telling us to use our phones and earbuds to listen to the tour while the tour guide spoke in Japanese. We didn't bring any earbuds so we were given the ONLY headset that did the audio guide in English. My husband and I took turns listening to the 2 minute explanations of everything we were looking at. Since we've been on brewery tours and actually make our own beer we were pretty familiar with the process but it was fascinating to see the canning and boxing lines going. The bottling line was being worked on so it wasn't running for our tour. At the end they take you to the tasting where you get three glasses of beer. We did our tour at eleven am. I wouldn't really recommend any earlier. After your three glasses (on an emplty stomach) then you are released to the gift shop! They have all kinds of things to buy -- mugs, sake, plum wine, beer of course and whisky. Somehow my husband and I bought two small bottles to take home: a plum wine and a whisky (we don't even drink whisky!!!!) This tour was free but I would have paid to do this!

Great tour of the original Asahi Brewery.
Sep 2018 • Friends
The first Asahi brewery, the original. They have audio devices on English, but a lot of the history is not in the English version. After tour there is a 30 minutes tasting period, good times. I recommend going with someone who speak Japanese, it makes everything more easy.

Free Brewery Tour
Sep 2018 • Couples
We visited here during our stay in Osaka. You should be aware that the brewery itself is about a 45 minute trip from the middle of Osaka. When you leave the train station, the way to the brewery is not very well marked, but we were able to get there by exiting the Suita train station and taking three right turns. You basically walk all the way around the brewery itself to the entrance.

Everyone was very polite and helpful, but the English is quite limited so just be aware of that. They only provided us with 1 audio guide even though there were two of us. They said each tour group only gets one audio guide. Luckily, we had a pocket wifi and a phone with which we could download the app for the tour itself. The downside is that we didn't bring any headphones (because we assumed we would both get an audio guide). The guide itself only has on earphone so you really can't share. I'm a little confused how they expected both of us to share one audio guide and that kind of put a damper on the tour since everything is in Japanese.

The audio guide itself is informative, but short. The actual guide spoke in a lot more detail about what we were seeing (or I'm assuming she did because her speech lasted way longer than our audio guide speech). You get to see the bottling and packaging process which is really cool.

The best part was the tasting at the end. They give you three glasses (full size glasses) and a small snack. It was fun to try the different beers they had on tap. They also have a bunch of fun props that you can take pictures with so that was fun. We left with a buzz and a cool inside look of the Asahi brewery so I'd call that a good time!
