Kasabesa Philippine Craft Beer Blog Logo

Your Philippine Craft Beer Authority

Welcome to Kasabesa, a craft beer blog designed to be a major resource for the Philippine Craft Beer Scene. Since early 2019, this blog has strived to be the most up to date information hub on everything craft beer in the Philippines. As you look around, you’ll discover a directory that will lead you to information on every current craft brewery and bar. Included in that are a map and some handy social media links to the companies. Also included are blog posts that cover a whole range of aspects and events for the local scene. There is also a dedicated section to all the posts made on home brewing. Homebrewing is a growing part of the Philippine Craft beer scene, and this area will be ever-growing. Meant to evolve, the directory, amongst other areas, will be continuously updated with new or growing breweries.
Check back often to catch updates and new blog posts.

About Me:

I moved to the Philippines back in 2018, and I came from Australia, a country with an evolved craft beer scene. It was apparent when I came here that things were about to grow, but there weren’t many resources where to find these locally made brews. So as I researched where to find these places so I could have a nice cold pint, an idea hit. Why don’t I start a blog to put everything in one area, so locals and travellers alike can easily find what they’re looking for.
I’m also a keen homebrewer and have been doing it for a few years. . So when I’m not actively searching out beers, I’m making my own at home. I understand some of the difficulties local homebrewers have, and I hope to assist. I’m looking forward to continuing this blog and watching it, and the local scene grow. If you have any questions, you can always send me a message on here, Facebook or Instagram.

Until Next Time.
