Well Lion Nathan is owned by Kirin so I would assume they handle any other beers under the Kirin umbrella.

^ is correct.

Kirin is BUL by Lion Nathan (as Lion Nathan is owned by Kirin). I'm not sure if they do imports, I've only seen the BUL stuff in store.

Asahi is imported by CUB/Fosters.

I think Coopers have a deal with Sapporo. I could be wrong but I was under the impression that Coopers distribution arm imports it or Coopers brew it under license.

Asahi is imported from Canada by Fosters.
Kirin is BUL by Lion Nathan.
Sapporo is BUL by Coopers.

You might be able to get a small amount of kegs of Hitachino through Palais Imports.

They might be the QLD agents. Not entirely sure the situation over in QLD in regards to Hitachino.
