First Sip: Joe's Brew

A Poblacion food crawl is never complete without dropping by a bar or pub. As one of the hottest spots for a night cap, you'd be surrounded by several establishments that offer superb food, beer, cocktails and everything you need to paint the town red. And we made sure to include the popular Joe's Brew in our Poblacion food crawl last month.

Hello, Joe's Brew.
Joe's Brew is tucked inside the quiet side of Poblacion. It may be a bit hard to find this place with its modest signage but Google Map or Waze's pin are pretty accurate and will lead you to this quirky pub. 
It's best to come here after having a meal or bite as Joe's Brew serves mostly beer with a handful of bar chow on the side. But don't think of this place as a quick stop as it has a lot of beer options to choose from. 
Since we are a bunch of fickle-minded foodies, we opted to go for beer flights (PHP300/flight) instead so that we get to sample all the brews. 
Fish Rider which is a pale ale, ABV 5.0%, IBU 35 beer is my favorite! Its sweet and slight citrusy aroma beautifully complemented by caramel flavor made it Joe's Brew's bestseller. It being easy to drink makes it a bit dangerous in my book as one could easily gulp a handful of pints in minutes!
Meet Joe Black's dark color would make one think that this is packed with bitter taste but I was proven wrong. This sweet stout with ABV 6% and IBU 18 is another preferred drink by Joe's Brew's patrons. 
34th Pursuit (IPA, ABV 6.8%, IBU70) on the other hand is one hoppy drink. But what I love about it is that the bitter taste does not linger and it is actually a refreshing beverage, perfect to be enjoyed on a humid night. 

There were a bunch of other drinks served that night but these three are my top drinks.
You could also head to Joe's Brew and have your favorites on the go!
Or take a peek of its brewery upstairs. Just ask if you could and not go straight up!
