Default About San Miguel Beer

About San Miguel Beer
San Miguel Beer is a brand carried by San Miguel Corporation (SMC), Southeast Asia's largest publicly listed food, beverage and packaging company. It is first established in 1890 as a brewery by Spaniards. The words “San Miguel” came from Spanish, originally meaning “look into the distance; expect and hope”.

As one of the top beer brands in Philippines, San Miguel Beer was being exported from its headquarters in Manila to Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guam. A pioneer in Asia, San Miguel established a brewery in Hong Kong in 1948, the first local brewer in the crown colony. In order to exploit its Mainland market, San Miguel came to Guangzhou in 1934. Thus, Guangzhou San Miguel Brewery Company Limited established as required as a joint venture between Hong Kong San Miguel (Guangdong) Limited and Guangzhou Brewery, with its production base located in the largest industrial zone of Guangzhou, a neighborhood of the most active Footwear as well as Leather business areas in China.
Nowadays, due to the government’s policy of “Reduce the secondary industry to develop the tertiary industry”, secondary industry gradually withdraws from urban areas to make the development of creative industry possible. In response to the policy, the manufacturing base of Guangzhou San Miguel Brewery Company Limited has moved to its new premises San Miguel (Guangdong) Foods and Beverages Company, Limited (SMGFB) in Shunde district. Instead, its original base Guangzhou brewery is now rebuilt into a creative district as the design centre of Original Element Creative Industries, a district focus on footwear design and leather goods design with its products characterized by China element, a synthetic fashion base with design center, engineer center, ICT center and management center, a new project aimed at networking designers and fashion Organization from across the world in addition to providing linkages to OEDC projects providing enterprise supporting and engages in the maintenance, development and promotion of the fashion industries business both in domestic and foreign markets, becoming the hotspot among international giant fashion creative industries corporations.

I don't speak Spanish, but something tells me that "San Miguel" means "Saint Michael."

Not that that's the shadiest part of this post.

IMO San Miguel is a great beer! But maybe sitting on the beach in Hong Kong with a cold San Mig and a hot bowl of noodles has skewed my tastes

Okay I feel bad now. I'll buy a sixer and give it a shot next time it's hot out.
