Asahi Breweries is located near JR Takeshita station and easily accessible from downtown Fukuoka. The visit is free of charge, but accompanied by their staff. Their display is not very informative, but the tasting of beer at the end of tour is excellent!

I learned a lot during this visit to Japans most famous Breweries. I had no idea that Asahi also had non-alcoholic beverages. We were able to try three different types of beer or their non-alcoholic beverages.
