①Raw materials and crushing

Orion beer is made from malt, hops, and high quality water. We order and use carefully selected items from all over the world to create a unique taste.

②Preparation

Heat the crushed malt to make sweet malt (beer base). After filtering this, add hops, boil, cool and transfer to the fermentation tank.

③Fermentation

Add yeast to chilled barley and fermented. Sugar contained in barley juice is decomposed into alcohol and carbon dioxide by yeast, and becomes a young beer in about a week.

④Savings

By ripening young beer slowly in a storage tank for more than a dozen days, it will be finished with a well-balanced and delicious beer. However, it has not yet been completed.

⑥Filtration

Removes yeast and excess protein from beer that has been aged over time. Then you can make a beautiful amber beer.
