Irvine, CA – The inaugural draft launch of San Miguel Pale Pilsen Beer in the United States has been much anticipated and took place during the 78th Annual National Beer Wholesalers Association Convention at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV from October 11-14, 2015. Carlos Berba, Managing Director San Miguel Brewing International; Eric Martelino, VP Export Develop Manager; and Jorel Tangpuz were on hand for this historic event along with key staff from importers GK Skaggs.

Genuine. Unpretentious. Real. These are the key ingredients that make the classic brew of San Miguel Pale Pilsen. It’s for those who find joy in the simple pleasure of being with friends and enjoying great beer. This pale, golden lager has a slight hoppy note with a distinct bitter hop character. It is known for having a well-balanced medium body that slides smoothly on the palate with a pleasant clean finish. Its alcohol content is 5% by volume. This iconic beer from the Philippines, Spain, and Hong Kong has initial plans for draft rollout to include CA, NV, and HI in late 2015 into 2016.
