Any craft in Phillipines? Will be in Manila and Cebu
Pivo Praha (Brewery Restaurant) in Makati may be the best in Phlippines.
Check this out. They have list of establishments that carry craft beers. Mostly in manila. The best bottle shop would be gilmore wines and liquors.
Sorry, I wish I had seen this earlier. I was in Manila for a few days back in March of this year and I managed to find a couple of places that offered bottled imports from Europe and the US. There's a place in Eastwood City called "Distillery" that serves stuff like Rochefort 10, Westmalle Tripel, and Duvel. I found another placed called Craft Pub and Grill at The Fort in Taguig that focuses on American craft beer (Stone, Ballast Point, Victory, etc). Unfortunately, I didn't find any local craft beer, but that's not to say it doesn't exist, just that I may not have dug deep enough.
A new local craft brewer in Manila is Katipunan Craft Brewing. They make a decent "Indio Pale Ale". Also GPoint Bar in Malate & Tagaytay is brewing and have three or four varieties on tap only. There is an organic craft brewery in Bacolod known as BogsBrew who brews an interesting ale using hints of lemongrass and local organic sugarcane and honey. It's available in a few places in Manila including Bob's Cafe and PenPen's in CubaoX. Cheers!
wow, i wish i knew about this i went there last october. thanks for the info. i will keep this in mind next time i go to the phils.
Good to know. I'll be back in Philippines in August if anyone wants to check out some beer. BM me.
Going to be in Pasay for three weeks. any other BAs in the area or updates on craft availability?
Will be flying in on March 3rd, and staying in Manila for a week. If any local(ly aware) people would like to show me around a bit would be sweet!
