There so much beer to taste and know about in McKinley Hill Beer Festival

For the whole stretch this month of October 2014, the Venice Piazza of McKinley Hill in BGC is the place for Beer Festival where grand revelry is overflowing with fun and excitement for beer connoisseurs and enthusiasts. 

Over 100 craft and imported beers, beer-infused dishes and non-stop entertainment will surely gratify the thirst and food desire of partygoers. 

October 1 to 25, 2014 - Experience and enjoy the McKinley Hill Beer Festival with more fun and exciting beer promos.  From 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M., beer-lovers can enjoy unlimited beers for only PHP299.00 for local beers and PHP499 for imported beers at participating establishments. 

Take advantage and enjoy the month long limited-edition mouthwatering beer-infused dishes prepared by Wursty Wursty Beer Garden, Tratorria Poggio Antico, Marciano's, Main Street and Little Asia.

The kick-off of McKinley Hill Beer Festival formally commenced with a cheer and gulping  down pitchers of beer.  Karen Bordador (center), who serves as master of the ceremony, joins the initiation rite of unlimited beer drinking.

October 10 & 11, 2014 - you can regale in the German Octoberfest by Wursty Wursty Beer Garden, where you can enjoy great selection of imported German beers and popular German cuisine, along with live performance from KSM Jean and Joey, Kilda, and Xpresso.

Among the beers I've tried, I find this Pivo Praha excellent in taste. This microbrewed beer is crisp and getting more manly when chilled.
October 17, 2014 - Watch the best indie musicians and artists in town performing at the Indie Supreme. Performers would include Angelo, Mom's Cake, Engkanto Reggae, Megan Aguilar, Yosha, Lougee Basabas, and Wolfgang.

Small players in beer industry, the craft breweries, like the Xavierbier, the  Pivo Praha (above), the Hand Craft (below) and the Great Island Craft Brewery (also below) are gaining exposure by participating in the Beer Festival.

Beer products now being manufactured in a local brewery in Bakekang, Baguio City.

Soon-to-be marketed are bottled versions of Xavierbier beer products. These four bottled craft beers represent Ifugao legendary complicated belief of the universe and system of deities. Their flat universe is composed of six worlds: Kabunyan (Skyworld), Pugaw (Earthworld), Dalom (Underworld), Lagud (Eastern World), Daya (Western World), and Kadungayan (Spiritual world).

This can be your real tear jerker. Now, you cannot just pretend crying when you are broke.

A FRIENDLY REMINDER :  Be aware of RA 10586, or the  "Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act of 2013," a new law that took effect recently. It penalizes drunk driving in the Philippines. Don't drink and drive, otherwise you will loss lots of things in your life. Your license to drive might be cancelled and banned you to drive for life. Isn't it worse when its too late to realize that your life insurance and car insurance will not cover you and your losses due to alcohol. If drinking is socially unavoidable, just drink moderately and responsibly. (Check this for your reference: The Official Gazette)
