The Brewery at the Palace Celebrates their First Anniversary
The Brewery at the Palace is a bar that prides itself with their own micro-brewery. Through this micro-brewery, they were able to produce different types of beer for everyone to enjoy and one year later, there are showing no signs of slowing down.
It started with the idea on why our beers (although brewed here) had imported ingredients. The only thing local would be the water. So why not use the ingredients from the Philippines to create beer for the Philippines? So through the help of Oliver Ellrotte, brewmaster, The Brewery has concocted different types of beers for everyone to try out. It started with four main Artisanal Beers….
- Pilsner – Pale Lager
- IPA (Indian Pale Ale)
- Stout – Dark Beer
and they have expanded to creating more using local ingredients.
Note: I’m not a beer expert so I’m not able to describe them as much as I’d like too.
New Beer Flavors
As part of their first year anniversary, two new flavors have been launched namely Epic IPA and Chokolate Boom.
The Chokolate Boom welcomes you with a hint of chocolate as you take a sip; then it will brutally attack your throat with the hotness of siling labuyo (wild chili).
Food at The Brewery
It is not only the beer that’s going to be joining the celebration as Chef Carlo Miguel has prepared an arsenal of new dishes for the celebration.
Their attempt for our favorite BBQ came out as a winner thanks to that delicious sweet marinade with a spicy kick. It comes with two sticks each of US Angus, Pork Belly and Chicken. This would be a perfect match for beer!
The tacos were stuffed well with shrimps, sisig and angus beef. It was the aioli that secretly magnifies the taste of these tacos. I loved the shrimp taco best!
The salad had a lot of ingredients to it yet I only managed to eat a few pieces of greens.
The sliders were messy to eat (as it keeps on falling off). The mix of beef and chorizo in the patty was something you don’t get to eat everyday although it doesn’t have that same wow as the tacos and bbq.
Would you believe that the pizza dough was made from grains and pilsner after brewing? It had a similar chewy texture as with their complimentary focassia bread. Although it overpowers the cheese a bit (unless you eat the middle parts).
Curry from Indonesia means coconut milk was used. I’m glad that the spiciness was tolerable and the beef was fork-tender.
Similar in presentation would be the fried duck with sambal sauce. Also fork tender and with no “duck” smell.
Light flavored spaghetti in wheat beer butter sauce.
A combination of sisig and silog. It should be mixed thoroughly to enjoy it.
This I like! Although it doesn’t really stand out but it is roast beef so my personal bias kicks in.
As for dessert, we had cheesecake! Umm.. yah. :)
These were just a few of the new (and current) exciting dishes / drinks that the Brewery has in store for their first year anniversary. They strive to continuously improve on their brewing and the dishes they churn out. Each dish has one main goal; which is to be paired with beer. For example, the sisilog, pinoy bbq, beef rendang and tacos really go well with beer.
More power to the Brewery and keep brewing!
