You got it! Artwah! So now you havbe to try it and let me know.

I saw it on the menu around here (of course, now i can't remember where......) but you gotta figure that if it's botlled then it has to come all this way, it's been banged around, got a suntan, been abused, etc. How good can it be? Gotta try it at the source! Sounds like a good reason for a trip!

keeping my fingers and toes crossed. it looks like a return visit to the continent is in the cards for me this year.....then i'll hunt down this Stella Artois......

Mga nasubukan ko na:

SMB's Pale Pilsen, Light, Super Dry, Blue Ice, Cerveza Negra, Red Horse, Gold Eagle, Texas Beer. SMB also distributes Miller but I'm not sure if its locally brewed.

Asia Brewery's Beer na Beer, Colt 45, Lonestar Light. ABI also distributes Budweisser... I doubt if its locally brewed.

I've tried Corona and Dos Equis here in RP.

And in my few stints abroad:
Jamaica - Red Stripe (their local beer), Heiniken & Guiness (both imported)
Cuba - Cerveza Crystal
Hongkong - SMB pa rin
Malaysia - I forgot, it was a forgettable experience

Beer na Beer, Lonestar Light and Gold Eagle are the worst

Super Dry and Corona are my favorites, but I normally drink San Mig Light -- low calorie daw, same alcohol content. Biktima ng marketing. hehe

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Budweiser used to be brewed locally by Asia Brewery back when they had the rights to do so. any budweiser you will find locally these days have to be imported since ABI gave up the franchise to brew and distribute budweiser years ago.

there was a time when budweiser was the only beer i drank. not out of choice but out of company loyalty since i also used to work for aother one of Lucio Tan's companies. malas non kapag walang budweiser, dapat colt 45. pag wala pa rin colt, stag. pag walang stag, lonestar. pag wala pa rin, beer na beer ang bagsak.

these days, i too prefer san mig light. not because of the low calorie claims though. it is true that it is lighter on the tummy kaya you don't feel that bloated kaya you actually get to drink more. well at least i do.... victim din kaya ng marketing?????

i usually drink stout (dark beer) kasi parang mas masarap kesa sa standard beer.i also tried SMB,Heineken, Budweiser, Tiger, Kirin, Shing Tao, Corona.Europeran beers are also ok kaya lang ang hirap ispell.
i manage to attend oktoberfest in munich last 2003. if you'r really a beer lover, this is your paradise.ang problema lang is if you can enter the tents that serve different types of beer kasi punumpuno.

ever been in a situation where the only beer to be found was not cold but warm and you still drank the beer anyway?

i did. back in college we were on an exposure trip to a peasant community in Bataan. come nightfall we checked out the sari sari store and all they had was warm Stag beer. pinatos pa rin namin! hahaha

can anyone here tell me: which bar serves guiness draft nowadays? somehow it tastes better that way, hindi masarap yung nasa lata. this used to be available at blarney stone, which was at the basement of glass tower, on palanca st in makati. pero ever since that place closed, i don't know where i can get guiness draft.

i had a memorable conversation with an expat there. i was drinking guiness, he was drinking SMB pale pilsen. he asked me why i was drinking guiness when SMB was one of the best beers in the world. i said, sure, i love san miguel, but i can buy those brown bottles in any sari-sari store in the country! here at blarney stone, i'm getting guiness!

i've tried grolsch, heineken, tiger, anchor... good stuff, but really... doesn't SAN MIGUEL PALE PILSEN make you proud to be filipino?

my other favorites: tsingtao, kirin, dos equis, molson (from canada). american beers.... blah! di na nga masarap, ginawa pang "lite"!?!

a friend of mine swears that kilkenny from ireland is excellent, divine. so like my question about guiness, saan kaya ito available?

CHEERS!
