Vitamin Beer

Vitamin Beer




Kampay kampay! Cheers or itaas mo! However you may say it, Filipinos just love rising up that booze to celebrate specials or freshen up after a hard day at work. According to the recent research done by Kirin Research Institute, Philippines ranked as 5th highest beer consumer in Asia next to China, Japan, South Korea and Thailand. This basically means that a Filipino drinker consumes 20 liters of beer a year.

Now, many health concerned institutions are alarmed by this statistics. Beer companies were also prompted to create solutions to make beer a little healthier or lesser evil in some ways possible. But no one got close to the invention of Virgilio “Billy” L. Malang – the first Filipino inventor of vitamin-fortified beer. According to Malang, Filipinos has been drinking beer like water. He also attest to this comical stint that he has been drinking beer for quite a long time, but nothing seems to happen except his bloating tummy. He aims to take the guilt out of the sheer pleasure of beer drinking sessions which has been a somewhat pseudo trademark of us Filipinos. I mean there wouldn’t be a glorious baptismal, wedding, and birthdays without the Godly booze, right?
Now I can see that devilishly grin in your face. Take some hint because we all know that even if this beer is fortified with Vitamin B-complex (The B vitamins work together to boost metabolism, enhance the immune system and nervous system, keep the skin and muscles healthy, encourage cell growth and division, and other benefits to your body); keep in mind that everything shall be taken in good moderation. Take some brilliance from what Bob Ong said- It’s not really the booze that makes the session happy, it’s the people you share the beer with. Hmmm, Quite true.
Drink moderately

Well, what can I say. Filipinos are really genius. But since it was mentioned that it was meant to take away the guilt you get when drinking, it might create a culture that since it is healthy, we have to drink more and it is okay to drink more. Anyways----a person is always accountable to himself. At least we have a choice......

BTW Denis, I am not actually a beer drinker. I remember drinking 3 san mig light last week. I got so drunk and I had a very bad hang-over the next day. Only 3 bottles at that. I guess I am not really into beer and other hard drinks. i prefer wine....kkkk
