Baguio Craft Brewery: Locally Made Draft Beer With Flavor Notes Of Strawberry, Mango & Wheat

Baguio Craft Brewery

The Baguio Craft Brewery has been a staple gastropub destination for those who visit the summer capital of the Philippines.

You’ll taste unique and interesting alcoholic beverages far from the usual commercially produced beers here.

Ordering your drink at the brewery can be intimidating at first, especially if you know nothing about the terminology. But don’t worry because the bartenders are helpful; just describe to them what flavor you’re looking for. In fact, you can even ask for a tiny sample if they’re not particularly busy.

On the other hand, you could order yourself tasters, or a set of small shots of every beer flavor, to decide which one you like the best before ordering a whole glass.

All their craft beers come from kegs and connect to a tap that ensures the freshness of each drink. Drinking beer from the tap also gives it enough fizzle, letting you taste the flavors more. You’ll know the big difference if you’ve ever had a flat beer from a bottle.

The difference between the two is their fermentation process and the final taste. Ales are fermented under warm temperatures and have sweeter and fruity flavors. Meanwhile, lagers are fermented in the cold and tend to have deeper notes that echo the taste of nuts, coffee, and chocolate.

At Baguio Craft Brewery, you can get ales made from mangoes, kiwis, passion fruit, strawberries, and local wheat. In contrast, we recommend getting the KRAKEN, a baltic porter lager with deep flavors, or the Message In A Bottle for a beer with coffee notes.

Since it’s on the top floor of a building, this pub is technically a Biergarten which refers to an outdoor space that serves food and beer. The whole ambiance of the place is inviting, with expansive windows and natural plants crawling on the ceiling.
