The 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival;
an Event That Will Change the Face of Beer Drinking In Angeles City Forever
Angeles City has always been a beer drinking kind of town but to be honest, the offerings for variety and quality in beer, like in the rest of the Philippines, have been limited to say the least.
That is all about to change for Angelenos and visitors in a big way as the city will play host to one of the most unique festivals to ever come to this region; the 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival, which will take place at Marquee Park at Marquee Mall December 2-4.
For those unfamiliar with the term, craft beer refers to beer that is made by a brewery that is small, independent and that uses traditional methods of brewing. Craft beers are made by hand with no preservatives or chemicals and come in literally endless varieties with varying tastes and alcohol content.
Craft beer has literally exploded in popularity in most parts of the world over the last decade and has, in the last three years, started to take hold in the Philippines. Several dozen micro-breweries have sprung up throughout the country, including one here in Angeles City, to service a fast growing demand for better quality beer. And these breweries are starting to consistently deliver some very good world class beers, from ales to lagers to the always popular IPA’s.
The 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival will give beer lovers the opportunity to taste and enjoy a large number of the latest Philippine-based craft beers in one place at one time. Organizers are planning on having around 15 micro-breweries on hand offering festival goers over 100 varieties of beer to taste and enjoy.
At the same time, festival goers will have the opportunity to enjoy their craft beers with a selection of gourmet international and local food provided by celebrity chefs and unique local food outlets, live jazz music, educational beer seminars and more.
The Angeles City Craft Beer Festival is the idea of American Ted Lerner, a long time resident of Angeles City, whose company TLC Promotions will be organizing the event. Lerner came up with the idea for a craft beer festival after tasting some local craft beers.
“Pinatubo Craft beer is the first micro-brewery in the Angeles area and I credit them with getting this idea going in my head. When I tasted their beer I said this kind of thing is the future of beer in this country.
“I absolutely love beer but for years I’ve been terminally bored with drinking beer in the Philippines because of the sheer lack of variety. But this has all started to change as the craft beer revolution which has swept the world has started to kick in here. There are small breweries popping up in every part of the Philippines and these folks are producing some quality beers. I’ve had the chance to taste a lot of them in the last few months while putting this festival together and I get more impressed each and every day.”
Lerner said what most impresses him about craft beer is the effort and creativity that goes into making this level of quality of man’s favorite beverage. And also, he says, drinking craft beer always means a good time will be had by all, especially in a party and entertainment town like Angeles City.
“All of the micro-breweries are small operations, with maybe five to ten employees. Craft beer is an art and a labor of love for these brewers. I want to showcase their efforts to the public because I know people these days are looking for new and unique drinking experiences that go beyond the ordinary.
“This is a chance for the beer drinking public in Angeles and Central Luzon to experience something new, to meet the very people who create this liquid gold and to have a lot fun. I’ve always loved the vibe that surrounds craft beer gatherings. It makes people happy and the scene is really cool. We are going to have breweries from Cebu, Manila, Sagada, Baguio, Palawan and right here in Angeles City all together in one place. Throw in the amazing food and music, and a spectacular outdoor venue at Marquee Mall and we have the ingredients for a legendary great time. In my opinion it can’t get much better than that.”
Tickets for the festival will cost P250 and include one free craft beer.
The 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival is endorsed by the Philippine Department of Tourism and the Angeles City Tourism Office.

2017 PHILIPPINE NASH HASH IN CEBU
REGISTRATIONS ABOUT TO OPEN
Cebu Hash is close to 20 years old and is based in and around Cebu City (approximately half way up or down on the east coast of Cebu Island).
Cebu is a longish, thin island with a narrow coastal plain along each coast with a multitude of steep-sided hills running south to north along its central spine. For Hashers, this means that much of the flat land is built up or fenced in. This leaves the hilly interior for most of our Runs. Browse our website at http://cebuhash.org/index.php to see the sort of places we regularly Hash.
Unfortunately, some of these places are a tad off the beaten track – they might not require a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get there but definitely need something with a high ground clearance (SUV, pickup, etc). Normally, we use our own vehicles to get to the start of our Runs. This can be problematical when we have a shit load of visitors to transport.
Cebu City itself has many upmarket(expensive) hotels and a wide variety of lower cost (but OK) places to stay at. There are also a handful of large (expensive) beach resorts scattered around the island. Unfortunately, the more economical resorts are not very large. We do not recommend staying on Mactan Island (Lapu Lapu) over a Hash weekend. By the way, there is not a large red-light bar district as such in Cebu.
The 2017 Philippine Nash Hash over May 19TH to 21ST
BASIC OUTLINE PROGRAM – (more to be added)
Friday 19THthere will be an afternoon arduous hills hike trail just outside the city proper.
For evening fun, a bar crawl run is being arranged.
Saturday 20THis the main run day and après cycle party at Genesis Valley Resort (current plan) just over the Cebu City / Consolacion border. A short walkers trail, a slightly longer one, and a 12km minimum ball buster. Open air circles leading on to gallons of beer with grub and entertainment. (Small swimming pool available at extra cost).
Sunday 21ST will see a late morning set of recovery runs (one short + one long).We hope this will be in sight of the sea and we can find a field in which to party away the afternoon.
We are working on the host of logistics matters regarding accommodation, transport, grub, beer, etc, but to keep you all satisfied with beer and grub quantities plus transporting you to the venues we have set the fee at Phil Peso 4,500 per head.
This is based on a limit of +/- 150 Hashers and will need to be paid (IN PHILIPPINE PESO) by 28TH February 2017 latest. Higher priced rego’s may still be available up to final cut-off date of 20TH April 2017. For those able to pay in cash in Cebu there will be a discount. Otherwise, payments are to be made in Peso through PayPal.
Details will be on a special Cebu Nash Hash 2017 website currently under construction but available soon.
ON ON to Cebu in 2017,
