Asahi Super Dry, Japan’s first dry beer and the No. 1 premium lager beer in Japan, is now available fresh on draught in Malaysia!
Carlsberg Malaysia has sealed a partnership with Asahi Breweries Ltd, one of the largest breweries in Japan, to manufacture, sell and distribute Asahi Super Dry beer in Malaysia.
Asahi (which means Rising Sun) is best known for its “Karakuchi” dry style, and the beer is a super-crisp, refreshing, easy drinking lager that does not have a bitter hoppy aftertaste that most lagers tend to have.
Asahi Super Dry will soon be available on tap in selected Carlsberg outlets around Klang Valley and all over Malaysia.

Little Creature invasion
The popular Australian ale Little Creatures is now available in Malaysia! The beer is a hand-crafted ale brewed by an independent brewery in Fremantle, Western Australia, and since its introduction in 2000, it has grown to become one of the most popular craft brews in Australia.
The beer’s name refers to the live yeast that is present in every bottle of Little Creatures Pale Ale, which are affectionately known as the “Little Creatures”.
The two Little Creatures beers that will be available in Malaysia are the Pale Ale (a light, fruity yet hoppy ale), and the Bright Ale (a more crisp and lighter version of the Pale Ale). Little Creatures is distributed by Luen Heng F&B Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Carlsberg Malaysia; and will be available at selected Carlsberg outlets in Klang Valley only.
