What? A robotic bartender? This changes everything!
Asahi Super Dry, the No. 1 Japanese beer around the world pushes the boundaries by presenting the world’s first robotic bartender, aptly named “Mr. Asahi“, to Malaysia. He was brought to our shores in conjunction with the availability of Asahi in draught, pints, and cans nationwide, brewed exclusively by Carlsberg Malaysia in Shah Alam.
Launched in December 2011, Asahi Super Dry’s main focus remained on draught beer and today, the premium beer brewed locally is packaged in 320ml cans, 325ml pints, and 640ml bottles.
Also, because it is now brewed locally, Malaysians can enjoy the beer nice, chilled, and more importantly, fresh, at Carlsberg outlets nationwide.
But back to raving about Mr. Asahi.
The brainchild of Japanese brewer Asahi promises to create a unique drinking experience by offering a one-of-its-kind interaction with beer lovers. How?
We hear that the super bartender is capable of serving people in less than two minutes, saving the average person 13 minutes at the bar. This is because Mr. Asahi is capable of pulling 300ml pints and opening bottles, and can serve up to 16 half pints or bottles at a time:
Impressive! But whoops. Homosapien bartenders beware! Because it sure sounds like you’ve got competition.
The ultramodern, space-age android is also expected to go on a nationwide tour with a crew comprising of dancers, a DJ, and a customized truck that unfolds into a mini party-space wherever he is. The expidition will take Mr. Asahi and his entourage to:
- Kuala Lumpur
- Johor Bahru
For 30 whole days beginning 15th of April 2012.
Mr. Asahi, you’re well on your way to igniting a world of possibilities. So fans, keep a lookout for the world’s first robotic bartender if you want to catch him in action.
