Gone are the days when our only choice for a beer at a bar was San Miguel’s Pale Pilsen or the calorie-friendly San Mig Light for days when you fear that dreaded belly. And though we’ll never understand how the men in our lives chug bottles and bottles of mass-produced beer, we’re glad that local microbreweries are whipping up some fresh flavors that girls can finally enjoy, too! Beer bellies aside, these unique creations made with premium and natural ingredients are totally worth the try. After all, they say a glass of beer after work is good for your health… and stress levels!
