This New Poblacion Pub Is a Haven for Local Craft Beer
Make sure to check out this new spot in Makati.
If it's quality craft beer you're thirsty for, Pedro Tap House has it in abundance—and on tap, too (basically, fresh beer). Pedro's famous craft beers Gateway Pilsner, Endless Summer Wheat Ale, and Procrastination Pale Ale finally find a new home in Poblacion, Makati. And they also have hard-to-find beer here that not a lot of people know exist!
If you're always reaching for the cocktail menu, the Orange Creamsicle Ale might just be your new go-to drink. It's a sweet, citrusy, slightly bitter-tasting beer made with a cream-ale base, fresh orange zest, and homemade vanilla-bean extract. Let this beer linger briefly inside your mouth, just enough that it'll make you daydream about being at a sunny beach while taking a swig of this beer-meets-cocktail brew.
Another must-try on Pedro Tap House's beer-on-tap menu is the Space Out Coffee Stout. This dark, aromatic beer is made with a lightly brewed oatmeal stout mixed with a cold brew using Yardstick Coffee's Golden Ticket blend.
Pedro Tap House isn't just a haven for craft-beer fans, but also a place for mouthwatering bar chow that pair perfectly with their brews. Start your drinking session with their appetizing Korean Mini Corn Dogs (P180). This snack is made with deep-fried mini Korean sausages enveloped with a golden and crunchy batter. There's a slight sweetness to these corndogs, which is a perfect foil to the spicy gochujang-mayonnaise dip served on the side.
Another starter you can share with your friends (or just order for yourself) is the Bar Junk (P300). This bowl is a delicious medley of popcorn, candied bacon, almonds, cashews, chili, and orange zest, which you can nibble on in between swigs of beer. Soon on the menu is a yet-to-be-named cheesy treat. It may look simple at first, but these deep-fried bites are made with five kinds of cheese: Cream cheese, blue cheese, brie, parmesan, and mozzarella.
If you're feeling hungry after your nth glass of beer, or are still nursing a hangover (from last night), Pedro Tap House also has a Hangover Bowl (P380), which you can dig into. This dish is filled with all the juicy guilty pleasures you'd often crave when you want to eat that intoxication away. It's made with Indonesian-style fried rice that's topped with an Onsen egg, crunchy snacks, slices of Spam, and Southern fried chicken. Or you can always get your hands a little greasy and sink your teeth into their Vegan Burger (P385): it's made with a top-secret legume and veggie patty, mushroom marmalade, vegan mayo, shredded cabbage, and a golden-brown pretzel bun to sandwich it all in. You wouldn't even guess that it's vegan and meatless!
