We all get by with a little help from our friends–mainly the ones that come out of the tap. The type that ideally fit in a glass, slowly loosening tongues to be as wild and boisterous as they can be. But if liquid courage has pushed you to try something new, we’ve got you covered with these four places brewing with a label that screams good time. – Hola Pauline
Alamat Filipino Pub & Deli
Navigate our very own country from Luzon to Mindanao without leaving Alamat Filipino Pub & Deli’s legendary four corners. Set to be the ideal unwinding spot with a sprinkle of a bygone era drawn on its walls, this carefully curated and proudly Filipino pub will get you intoxicated with good company and of course, good food and beer.
2/F 5666 Don Pedro St., Barangay Poblacion, Makati
Ocean’s Telephone Company
Take a shot of something exclusive with this underground bar, Ocean’s Telephone Company, an after hours version of a hole in the wall, furnished with tall stools and minimally decorated with bright red neon signs.
The Fort Strip, BGC
The Perfect Pint
The Perfect Pint is the quintessential place to brew your mind away with endless innovative beer flavors, all created with the pub’s own brewery. Devised with the perfect concoction of science and art, each glass with the rusty industrial interior will definitely make you stick around for another round.
Securities St, Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa
Concealed behind an almost abandoned looking steel crate gate lies a dim and smoke free bar that likely belongs in another century with its Addams Family-esque candles scattered all over. Make no mistake, you’re still in the 21st century. A definite keeper and breather, Finders Keepers is a homey speakeasy bar worthy of spreading word.
Sabio St, Makati
