This beer is from the Philippines and extremely popular amongst the masses in countries across Asia. Below one dollar for a can and 7%, it doesn’t just kick but it does scream.
San Miguel is aimed at low income people and it’s pretty unique in all fairness. It’s extraordinarily strong, has a good name, fine can and tastes quite malty. The sweetness of the beer is hidden in its massive alcoholic kick which whacks you halfway through the first can.
San Miguel is so strong that even Chang-drinking motorbike taxi drivers in Thailand find it hard to drink. It’s probably the strongest beer commercially available in many Asian countries and offers great value for money, well if you’re a hardcore beer drinker.
I personally haven’t had the guts to drink too much of it for fear of collapsing on the streets. It’s an attractive drink largely due to its sweet taste but fortunately for me, common sense prevails every time I’m at the shops.
The San Miguel Company have been in the beer industry since the early 1890s and currently employ over 25,000 people in more than 100 facilities across the Asian Continent. They have over 90% of the market share in the Philippines alone and really do know how to make decent beer. They can very well locate their market and know precisely how to promote.
