Craft Beer Lovers Rejoice! Beer Festival happening in Angeles City on December!

Ever since I got a taste of Pinatubo Craft beer last year, I have never go back to drinking the thin-flavored light beers.  There on the former tasting room of Pinatubo Craft Brewery, Bierkueche Snackhouse, we sampled the different brews of German brewmaster Michael Schittek. Mind you, Craft beers are a different breed of beers, they deserve another feature article just to prove why they are vastly different from mass-produced beers.


The Craft Beer Industry in the Philippines is growing, and there have been numerous craft beer festivals held in Manila, but not yet in Angeles City.   The first one though will be held on December 2-4, in Marquee Mall.  Below is the media release for the vent.

The 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival will be the first festival of its kind in the Angeles City/Pampanga region, and Central and Northern Luzon. Scheduled from December 2-4, 2016 at Marquee Mall’s outdoor Marquee Park, the festival will be the ultimate showcase for the fast growing craft beer market in the Philippines. It will also present the latest food trends offered by locally based celebrity chefs, accompanied by great live jazz from Pampanga’s best jazz musicians, and plenty of fun and games.

The Philippine craft beer scene has really started to take off in the last few years with several dozen micro-breweries popping up from as far south at Palawan to as far north as Sagada in Mt. Province, and all places in between. Using the best imported ingredients, no chemicals or preservatives and hand crafted with care and meticulous attention to detail, craft beer brings a new experience to man’s favorite beverage. Filipinos who have grown tired of the same old same old when it comes to beer drinking, are quickly discovering the endless varieties and tastes, and of course, the quality that craft beer offers.

We are expecting to have around 15 Philippine based micro-breweries, along with several imported craft beer brands from the US, Japan and Belgium. All total, festival-goers will have a stunning array of around 100 different varieties of delicious and fresh craft beer to choose from, all in one place at one time. Happy days indeed!

You will also get a chance to meet the very people who make this liquid gold and learn about the intricacies of what goes into making craft beer. We will even have free seminars each day of festival, with our participating brewers talking about how they make beer, and answering your questions. Who knows? You too might be motivated to start your very own micro-brewery.

The 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival is endorsed by the Philippine Department of Tourism and the Angeles City Tourism Office and is sponsored by CPI Call Shop & Business Café, Harrier Magazine,, Cool Breeze Hotel,  Royce Hotel and Casino, Hotel Euro Asia,, Harry the Horse,,, Sunstar Pampanga, Philippine Ink Master, Systems Plus College Foundation and is powered by Pouch Nation.

The event will benefit the Tuloy Foundation for street children.
