So, what’s so great about a robotic barman?
For a start, Mr Asahi is capable of serving people in less than two minutes, saving the average person 13 minutes at the bar. Capable of pulling 300ml pints and opening bottles, Mr. Asahi can serve up to 16 half pints or bottles at a time.

And Mr Asahi’s visit to Malaysia is thanks to Carlsberg Malaysia, who bought in the space-age android in conjunction with Asahi Super Dry’s local production and increased distribution.

Yes, Asahi Super Dry is now brewed right here in Carlsberg Malaysia brewery in Shah Alam, effectively reducing logistic cost, import duties and time yet maintaining stringent quality.

Launched in December 2011 (I missed the launch!), Asahi Super Dry’s main focus remained on draught beer, but now customers can purchase Asahi Super Dry in 320ml cans, 325ml pints and 640ml bottles as well too.

Here’s some informative notes about the Asahi Super Dry:

Asahi means Rising Sun.
Karakuchi is a unique brewing method using a special yeast strain. And the added adjective ‘Super’ is to reinforce the beer’s crispness.

Asahi Super Dry is also Japan’s first Karakuchi (dry) beer – the No. 1 in Japan & the No. 1 Japanese beer in the world.
Introduced in 1987, Asahi Super Dry, packaged with a metallic exterior/casing, boasts a unique Karakuchi style that is clean, crisp, refreshing with no bitterness.

Last but not least, do you want to meet Mr Asahi just like how I did?
