TLDR: Take a real close look at the 'commercial' playing on the TV's in the store behind Deckard when he's reading the paper outside the noodle bar very early in the film.

Juicy details & pics at my blog: https://gndn.wordpress.com/2017/11/26/blade-runner-1982-kirin-beer-bottle/

Apparently, those TV's are running a loop of the commercials shot for the blimp & building video-billboards? I took a quick look at Jason Eaton's blimp video commercials, and his seems to show the geisha girl with mug & bottle shot, but not the close-up of the bottle pouring that shows the label clearly.

I found a Kirin ad on eBay that seems to date that bottle & label style to at least 1979. There's a similar version that doesn't have the 'neck wrap' covering the cap, so be careful.

Warm regards,

Another cool find. And another reason why this movie has lasted as long as it did, its density.
