Red Horse (Extra Strong) Beer

Red Horse Extra Strong beer (from the San Miguel Beer Company) is a staple in any Pinoy inuman. The 330 ml bottle (also known as the “Stallion”) has been around since 1992 and is supposed to sell for around 16 pesos. Of course it’s slightly more expensive than that at supermarkets, bars, and convenience stores but it’s still cheaper than a San Miguel Beer, which costs around 25 pesos (or more if you’re buying from a restaurant). Part of Red Horse Beer’s popularity is due to the fact that it’s got about 7% alcohol content – perfect for when you want to get pretty wasted on a very low budget. Personally I’m not a big Red Horse fan because I don’t like how crude it tastes – give me San Miguel Light or Strong Ice any day. I do drink Red Horse when I’m a little low on cash; two Stallions gives me the buzz of three San Miguel Lights, and the taste is fairly easy to ignore.
