KIRIN ICHIBAN
CHRIS ULLENS

At Kirin Ichiban, they go by a principle that sees the journey being as important as the destination. This is why we created this magical journey through a beautiful hand crafted and theatrical paper set for a hand to reach a Kirin Ichiban beer. “There’s beauty in the process”, that counts for the crafting of their beer, but also for the making of this film.
