If there’s one thing that Filipinos share, it’s the love of alcohol. Long nights with a beer in hand or an indoor date with all the wine and cheese in the world — drinking is fun either way!
And what better way to share this love for alcohol than by becoming a patron to our local brewers? If you’re having trouble looking for your next drink, we’ve got you. Here are a couple of homegrown businesses near you.
A combination of wine, cured rum, and fruits, Jesus Juice is the perfect storm for a variety of occasions. With an ABV of 7.6%, this drink’ll be sure to get your night going!
Beware: they also offer an alternative, “traydor” drink called Judas Juice. This one’s got a 10% ABV, so tread carefully.
Brewed and bottled in Tagaytay, Monkey Eagle has a bevy of beers to offer thirsty customers. The brand is most noticeable for its fun and quirky packaging and wide variety of ales to choose from. They also offer their products by the bottle or by the case, so don’t hesitate to try them out!
While they are based in Tagaytay, you can find a number of their stalls in the Metro. Check their website for more info.
