Global Beer Exchange’s The Bottle Shop: Craft Beers From All Over The World!
Thirsty and in need of some chillin’? A beer is probably what you need.
Now, I’m no beer sommelier. Someday I’d like to know how to identify what they call beer aromas, consistencies and colors… but right now, I just like to enjoy the taste. Me, with the little novice skills that I have, can only categorize everybody’s favorite booze into three: the OOH, the MEH and the UGH. Rules are basic and simple: Like it? Drink it.
Me and the girls got out of the busy Makati Central Business District this time and tried our luck in one of the quieter parts of city, Magallanes. To drink and be merry on a hot Friday night – that was our goal. Global Beer Exchange is the perfect spot for that.
Global Beer Exchange’s The Bottle Shop
Global Beer Exchange is located at Paseo de Magallanes, a commercial complex near SLEX and EDSA.
They offer a variety of beers from all over the world.
The place is humble and small with the purpose of keeping just enough people inside without feeling crowded. Ambiance is great and is ideal if you’re looking for a place to chill and catch up with friends. No deafening music to battle over. Helpful staff, too! They helped us find the perfect bottles to chug.
First gulp was the Tripel Slaapmutske, Belgian beer with an 8.1% Alcohol by Volume (ABV). I had a sip, and got a sweet aftertaste. Category: OOH
The Blue Moon Belgian White was my choice. Its goes down smooth and I enjoyed it both cold and tepid. ABV of 5.4%. Category: OOH
By landslide, Kasteel Rouge was the star of the night. The fruit beer was dark ruby in color and it smelled like cherry! While it tastes like a ladies’ drink, it’s meant to be taken seriously – it comes with a 8.0% ABV. Category: Double OOH
Leffe Blonde gives a meaner kick than Blue Moon with a 6.6% ABV. Another fine product from Belgium. Category: OOH
We also ordered from tap and got…
Katipunan Craft Ale’s Dear Fred. This one’s interesting. It’s a local beer and is perfect for coffee lover beer drinkers. Ale with coffee undertones. Me? I found it alright. I’ll try this again next time. Coffee and beer together is an acquired taste, methinks. Category: MEH
Katipunan Craft Ales’ Indio Pale Ale, on the other hand, was sweet. I swear, it tasted like roses. Another product of the Philippines! Category: OOH

No one got drunk (that much) and another Friday ended with a good buzz!
