Just as fresh brewed coffee is best enjoyed hot — spurring innovations like Coffee Joulies to keep it at just the right temperature — so beer is most refreshing when cold. That’s why Dutch brewer Grolsch went so far as to loan out refrigerators during the World Cup a few years back, and it’s also at the heart of a new invention from Japanese brand Kirin. Namely, Kirin’s new Ichiban Shibori Frozen Draft is served with a layer of frozen beer foam on top to help keep it frosty cold.
