In this renewal, we have further improved the refreshing feeling and texture, and further refined the “refreshing taste similar to beer”. In addition, by promoting the “joy” of actively incorporating non-alcoholic beer-taste beverages into life through advertisements, not only existing users but also people who are drinking non-alcoholic beer-taste beverages for the first time and those who have been drinking for a while.

In addition, we will launch a new small bottle for restaurants nationwide, and while linking it with cans sold to mass retailers, we will work to increase awareness and encourage drinking through drinking experiences at restaurants.
