FIFTY…. ridiculous that i got the goal a little past the halfway mark of the year. i definitely wanted this one to be my fiftieth (that looks weird, so i’ll just write 50th).

ahh… san miguel — the beer of choice for the filipino. i remember family parties (when i was a wee one) where uncles would drink this stuff… that was when i thought beer was gross (so maybe when i was like 18 or so)… the commercials on the filipino channels were awesome too — i couldn’t find the one i was looking for, but i saw these on youtube and they’re just as awesome:

SABADO, SABADO, SABADO — this is my jam before i roll out on saturdays — make it yours too:


and the obligatory pacman spot:


anyways… it’s a really smooth lager (american adjunct lager — you’ll notice this is a pretty popular type)… it’s light just like the rest of ’em…with minor flavors of grains

you might be thinking, “damn, joe… what an anti-climactic drink to achieve your goal on”

i say, “nay”

it’s kinda cool that it all came full circle around the world back to the philippines… aww

but don’t take my word for it, take it away, zane! (awesome — it’s a still image of balut! don’t click that if you’re squeamish!!!!)
