Kirin Ichiban Frozen Beer has propelled the Kirin brand internationally, with the concept having been introduced to other Asian markets, Europe, and across the Pacific to North America. By November 2013, Singapore had become the ninth country in the world where the frozen beer is available.

Kirin thus succeeded in giving drinkers a playful and social reason to connect, which is illustrative of how beer brands can still be leveraged as a vehicle to bring people together in an increasingly fragmented world.
