Frozen foam suds sales abroad to rise

JIJI

Kirin Brewery Co. will step up overseas sales of its frozen foam beer starting in May, with plans to sell Ichibanshibori-brand frozen foam beer at some 200 stores in about 10 countries, including the U.S. and China, the company said Tuesday.

The move is designed to help the unit of Kirin Holdings Co. achieve its goal of boosting overseas beer sales at a double-digit pace in 2013 from the previous year.
