Last week I got to experience something really unique. Tell me, have you ever had your drink poured by a robot? Well I did and it was one whole new experience!
Mr. Asahi, known as the world’s first robotic barman, is the brainchild of Japanese brewer Asahi and is able to serve people in less than a couple of minutes! Hence, saving the average person 13 minutes at the bar, saves time during happy hour? Haha.
Well being capable of pulling 300ml pints and opening bottles, Mr. Asahi is able to serve up to 16 half pints or bottles at a time!
Yes before I get into the whole deets of the roadshow, let's talk about Asahi the beer.
Asahi means Rising Sun. And since Asahi is a the local beer of Japan, what can be more meaningful by naming the beer after something Japan is very well known as?
For the curious cat, Asahi is specially made by using the karakuchi technique. It is a unique brewing method using a special yeast strain. The added adjective 'Super' is to reinforce the beer's crispness making it a very smooth, light as it flows down your throat, but full with flavor! Asahi Super Dry is Japan's first Karakuchi (dry) beer -- the No. 1 in Japan, the No. 1 Japanese beer in the world, and one of the world's fastest growing premium Asian beers.
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.
Join the roadshow as Mr. Asahi is on a nationwide tour with a crew comprising of dancers, a DJ and a customized truck that unfolds into a mini party-space where ever he is! Filled with music, drinks and food. What are you waiting for?
Consumers can try the refreshing Asahi draught poured by Mr. Asahi himself while enjoying the entertainment and crispy popcorn, AND even win some prizes by participating in the games held by the lovely Asahi crew!
Look out for Mr. Asahi at key entertainment outlets in Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Johor Bahru, Ipoh and Penang beginning 15 April 2012.
