As the 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival gets closer, this one of a kind event has started to attract attention from craft beer lovers, and other curious folks, from around Luzon. And why not? With 15 Philippine micro-breweries and several imported brands offering close to 100 different kinds of craft beer, all in one venue at Marquee Mall’s Marquee Park, this is about as close to beer drinking nirvana as one can get.

The uniqueness of this festival has not gone unnoticed by city and regional leaders.  Ronnie Tiotuico, the long-time head of the Department of Tourism Region 3, an area comprising 7 provinces and over ten million people, has given his full backing to this distinctive festival. 

“The 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival is an idea whose time has come,“ Mr.Tiotuico said recently. “Angeles City and Pampanga are getting more and more known for being great places for food and drink lovers and this festival will surely enhance that reputation. We at the DOT  wholeheartedly support the Angeles City Craft Beer Festival and know that it will bring people from all over the region and Manila to enjoy the very best craft beer from around the Philippines and abroad. This is a festival that will surely grow and get bigger every year.” 

Richard Daenos, director of the Angeles city government’s tourism office also expressed his support for the festival.

“Angeles City is a growing center of entertainment and great food and drink and the Angeles City Craft Beer Festival is the perfect event to reflect that,” Mr. Daenos said. “We look forward to our city hosting guests from here and around the region and know that everyone will enjoy this great festival.”

The 1st Annual Angeles City Craft Beer Festival will be held from December 2-4, 2016 at Marquee Mall’s outdoor Marquee Park. Besides the incredible selection of craft beer, festival goers will enjoy delicious international and local food prepared by well-known chefs, live Jazz from the Jazz Grill All-Stars, and plenty of fun and games.
