  • Craft Beer Places in Manila
  • The industry of brewing and selling craft beers in the Philippines may only be starting, but it surely is starting to gain a following from people who would like to try something different and new to their palette. While San Miguel Corporation and Asia Brewery are two of the largest breweries in the country, there are also groups who continue to produce drinks that, although are not cheap, offer a unique beer-drinking experience to people.

    Craft Beers, according to the Brewer’s Association in Boulder, Colorado, are beers made by local, traditional, and independent breweries.  Brewers of this particular type of beer give a unique and special twist to this famous drink.

    If you are a beer enthusiast or just wants to try something new with your friends, Primer PH rounds down 5 places where you can get craft beers in the metro.
