Filipinos love fun and hanging out with families and friends. And when they hangout, Beer is one on the top list.
Good tasting beer though is not easy to find in most South East Asian countries unlike in Belgium, US, and UK. Germany and Japan even have beer festivals where varieties of beer are available for purchase and consumption.
But, thanks to San Miguel Beer Corporation, the largest beer producer in the Philippines, started its very own Oktoberfest in 2015. A musical and beer festival in celebration to the 125th anniversary of the San Miguel Pale Pilsen.
Beers in the Philippines are actually very cheap compared to other countries. You’d only spend around 0.50 cents to $2 per bottle or just a notch higher at high-end pubs.
