Beat the heat of summer at Drink Up Philippines
Quench your undying thirst brought about by summer in Drink Up Philippines, the country’s first alcohol festival focusing on local craft and international beer, handcrafted cocktails and quality wines, this coming May 24 at the Forum, BGC.

Expect to discover over 150 types of alcoholic concoctions with their fine roster of local bars and breweries, while Manila’s finest mixologists help you get the good kind of buzz.
“Drink Up has a very interesting mix of bars, speakeasies and breweries from all over the Philippines joining us at the festival. We also have the best home grown music talents performing at the festival,” shares Andrea Sambar, Communications Manager of Drink Up Philippines.

Among the popular names on the golden list will be Rocket Room, part of BGC’s haute bar scene, whose skilled mixologists will be there to serve you their famously odd, but brilliantly crafted mixes like the mysterious Rocket Fuel made with their special House Made JalapeƱo Pepper Vodka. Another bar to watch out for is the notably quirky Big Bad Wolf, a hidden hipster haven sought out by many for their twists on famous drinks.

For the beer connoisseurs, Drink Up scoured through the country searching for up and coming local breweries that the Philippines has to offer. Brewers from all around the country, like Palawan, Baguio, and Iligan City will be present to showcase their personal brews, such as local brewery, Craftpoint Brewing Co., who will be debuting their German IPL, Mr. Braumeister.

Satisfy your taste buds and marry your drink with a wide array of mouthwatering dishes to complement your beverage and leave you eternally craving for more. With the help of choice restaurants like Pink Panda, celebrity chef Erwan Huessaff’s newest venture, get a taste of the rich South East Asian rich cuisine prepared with a modern twist. Travel over to Las Flores, whose scrumptious tapas will immediately transport you to Spain, served up wonderfully with a glass of their sangria.

Sambar added that festival-goers will be surprised at the surreal amount of beverages that will be present at the event. “We want everyone to try out something new and expand their palates.
