Beer might be an acquired taste but boy, those who have acquired it sure love it. To them (to a lot of us, more like), nothing hits the spot quite like a nice cold beer. Whether it’s to cap off an eventful week or unwind after a stressful day, to celebrate a special occasion or to sip slowly while watching a Boracay sunset, sometimes life just calls for a bottle of beer.
