Craft beer culture is on the rise. More and more enthusiasts are on the lookout for the freshest, newest local brews to discover which ones offer the most creativity, intricacy and depth.
Feisty homegrown concoctions from different regions have been bubbling up in conversations, flavors from Sagada to Bicol and Baler to name a few. And Greenfield Development Corporation (GDC) has brought them all together in one grand event—its first ever Craft Beer Fest.
Touted as the biggest gathering of artisanal craft beer brewers in the country, GDC’s Craft Beer Fest, in partnership with Philippine Craft Beer Community (PCBC), was held last October 11 to 12 at Greenfield District, Mandaluyong City and featured 175 varieties from 35 breweries.
Around 5,000 attendees joined the two-day festival and personally sampled assorted flavor profiles paired with sizzling beer-match appetizers.
Among the breweries were Cerveza Sagada, Amigos de la Plaza, Boondocks Brewing Co, PCK, Brewlab 2021, and more.
More Craft Beer Fests are soon to come as it is set to become an annual event to be held at both Greenfield District in Mandaluyong City and Greenfield City in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
“As every one of us has a different personality, each craft beer does too. That’s why we’re giving enthusiasts the opportunity to discover new flavors while supporting local breweries by providing a platform for them to showcase their products,” said Atty. Duane A.X. Santos, Greenfield Development Corporation EVP and general manager.
