Hidden away on the quiet banks of the Shonai River in Moriyama Ward is the Asahi Brewery アサヒビール名古屋工場. Visitors can learn fun facts about Asahi, the brewery and the basics of brewing. There are many boards and posters that illustrate the brewing process, and these usually have a short English explanation as well. English brochures are also available at the reception desk. Tours in English are available, but you have to take a tour at the time they tell you. There are several Japanese-language tours throughout the day.
