Philippine beverages


The tropical climate makes a cold brew refreshing. The dominant brand is San Miguel, which is brewed in the Philippines and shipped around the world.

Cold beverages

Cold soft drinks and fruit juices are quite popular in this tropical-climate land. Street vendors will prepare them for you on the spot.

Barako Coffee

The coffee bean is native to the Bicol region in central Philippines. Its brew is full-bodied and sturdy-flavored. While not one of the world's greatest coffees, it's of good quality.


It's a spirit-wine concocted from palm-tree sap and is usually homemade. Most of the product is modestly potent, though sometimes it can be quite strong.
