Filipinos are a social bunch and what we love to do as a group is to drink. And when it comes to drinking, beer is a popular choice because it’s a refreshing drink perfect for the climate that always feels like summer. For those who want the bubbly goodness with a new twist, flavored beers are a good idea.
Flavored beers take the classic drink to a whole different level by adding notes of fruit, honey, chocolate, or other ingredients. If ever you’re wondering when it would be perfect to drink them, we have seven great ideas:
7. After an exam or during swelday!
After surviving a tough exam or two weeks at work, a bottle of flavored beer is the perfect way to destress. You’ve been good while studying or working on your deliverables, and what’s a better way to reward yourself than with something flavorful?
6. An intense round of EverWing
We know how popular EverWing is and how intense it can be especially if you’re already about to beat your high score. Be too tense and you’re bound to make a mistake, so take the edge off with some alcohol. Flavored beer is also the perfect celebratory drink! We also recommend it for other games like Mobile Legends, Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and Arena of Valor.
5. After a tour of Manila
There’s so much beauty to discover in Manila that it’s fun to do a walking tour. Pick between Escolta, Intramuros, Pasay, Makati, Ortigas, or any of the cities in our capital. Try the restaurants, check out the museums, and see what makes each district unique (don’t forget to take photos for social media). Cap off a rewarding journey with some flavored beer!
4. A marathon of scary movies or TV shows
Beer with a movie or TV show is great, but it’s even better when you’re watching horror or suspense. You can even make a game out of it: take a sip every time someone dies or each time the movie or TV show does a jump scare.
3. A listening party
If you’re tired of the club scene or you can’t be bothered to dress up to go to a bar, hold a listening party with friends. A listening party is when you gather a group of people to listen to music. One person can play DJ and select the soundtrack of the evening (either an album, a group of songs by the same singer or band, or a specific genre), or each participant can contribute a tune to the mix. Of course, good music is best paired with good beer!
2. After a Monday of stress at work or at school
After a fun weekend filled with parties and hangouts (or some alone time if that’s your thing), the daily grind of Monday can be tough. Assignments, projects, and emails to catch up on can be overwhelming and you deserve a reward for getting through the day. Make it special by going the more flavorful route.
