Beers for Fears: Grab Some of These Philippine Mythology-Inspired Brews

Learn about local folklore through these brews.

In Philippine mythology, a diwata is a deity or spirit believed to be a guardian of nature. Similar to fairies or elves, diwatas are said to cast blessings or curses on those who bring benefit or harm to the forests and mountains they protect. The Diwata White Wheat Ale brewed with lime and peppercorns is just one of the many beer variants of Fat Pauly’s Craft Hand-crafted Ales & Lagers from Iligan City that may just put you under her spell.
