G'Day Japan! / Food and Drink / It’s beer o’ clock with Orion Beer – Makoto Bento –

cover04Orion Beer: the mild, fresh tasting beer imported directly from Okinawa, Japan! The best way to experience Orion Beer is to match it with exquisite food – it’s praised in restaurants right here in Sydney too. Let’s take a look at what Makoto Bento likes to match with Orion Beer…



The spicy sauce keeps the beer flowing!


Wagyu Taco Rice $10.80

‘Taco Rice’ is a favourite of anyone who’s been to Okinawa – it’s a rice dish with elements of tacos on top. The match between the our original spicy sauce and Orion Beer is perfect! It’s the kind of thing you can eat even on a very hot day. The mince beef is wagyu beef from the Blue Mountains with truly great taste. The fresh and crunchy lettuce with it will lighten it up like a salad – all dished up nicely and popular amongst women. It tastes great even when it’s not hot so why not grab yourself an Orion Beer, take this outside on a sunny day?




Comment from Kumi Ikeda (Manager)

“Even though it’s 5% alcohol, Orion Beer is light tasting and easy to drink so I think it’s a great drink to start your night with. Whether it’s meat or fish, it goes well with anything so you could keep eating and drinking quite easily.
Sydney has a similar hot and dry climate like Okinawa, so Orion Beer goes wonderfully with Sydney. Now that Summer is here, it’s Orion Bgained popularity nationwideer season!”
