Was excited...
Feb 2020 • Couples
We walked across town to visit here. I work in a brewery back in the UK so was excited to see one in Puerto Princesa. The reviews for the beers looked great. When we got there I was slightly disappointed that the beers I wanted to try were out... The IPA had such a good write up but there was none. I know it’s only a small brewery so it’s hard to always have everything available. Still slightly disappointed though. We had the Palawan Honey Kölsch and the Batak Warrior IPA (imperial). Only in bottles, not sure if they do any on tap? Beers were ok, well brewed in my opinion. Maybe I’ll get to try next time if I visit!

Craft beer oasis in Puerto Princesa

The brewery is located just a short walk from the main busy streets, but feels miles away. Quality beer, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. The Beertender Fhem was an absolute delight to meet! I highly recommend you make this a must stop location if you are in PP!

We love this place we have been coming here every year or two since it opened .When we first came here you were able to taste the beer before you chose the best one for you but no food and it was upstairs and had a very intermit and welcoming feeling to it .Time goes on and now it’s much more popular which is great , it’s now downstairs and has a big screen tv with music clips going and no more testers and food is available if you are there at the right time and your choice of different beers is limited. We are an older couple and the barmaid was much more engaged with the younger men patrons than us. We will be back and hopefully it’s bigger again and both upstairs and downstairs venues will be operating for both preferences and their beer supply problem and food availability will be sorted out . After all there’s always teething problems with new enterprises. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Best thing in PP
May 2019 • Couples
Ignore negative reviews... You will need to pay slightly more for good beer, regardless of where you are in the world.
No they do kit sell the ubiquitous Pilsen, which is a godsend.
They have a range of great beers, I especially enjoyed the 2 IPAs on offer Mango was my preference but both were good, stout was very good also. Though a bit heavy in the Filipino heat for me!

Not much on offer food wise, just bar snacks.

It's a bit off the beaten track but worth the stroll of an evening.

Bottles cost around 200-250 a pop which is about the going rate for decent beer in Palawan, I paid about the same at a microbrewery El Nido for a beer nowhere near as good as these ones.

Good, friendly bar

I had fun here. The buko rum is spectacular. They had several beers. The bartender (I think her name is Phem) was great. She knew the different beers and has a great personality. She was a blast.

As is the case with most small breweries I've visited, not all beers are available at all times. But Phem explained that right away and had good suggestions for what I might like.

Another great thing about this brewery is that it is a successful female ran business. I think one of the first female owned and operated in the Philippines.

I will definitely try to make it back again before I leave Puerto Princessa.

Lame, just lame, lousy beer
Mar 2019 • Couples
The place looks nice and the bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. That’s where the good part ends. There was no draft beer, they don’t offer flights or tastings. Bottled beer is 200 peso each which is way too expensive. I only tried one beer, the Buco Loco and it was pretty bad. There are very few food choices. This place was a big disappointment.

Good ambiance

Loved the Palawan Honey Kolsch. Tried the Longganisa too, it’s really good. It’s a good place to go too just to hangout and have some locally brewed drinks.

Quiet bar with good beer
Jan 2019 • Solo
They had four beers on tap when I was there - all quite distinct - plus some bottled beer. The bartender was friendly but didn't know too much about the beer itself - it would be nice to have some information available (eg type of hops).
It's a small, quiet bar (in the afternoon anyway, maybe it gets busier at night) away from the main street. There is (of course) a large video screen playing music videos but the volume wasn't too intrusive.
