Are they the ever decreasing bottle size of 275ml ?

Good price if your store has them.

Online is £8 for 12 bottles.

Import or brewed uk rubbish??

It's all UK brewed rubbish unfortunately. It tastes NOTHING like the stuff I enjoy quaffing in Spain.

They were the same until they spilt but they work together to promote the brand. 'Originally' the company that made the 'original' san mig is Filipino and started making the beer in Spain until they sold the company. San mig is 'originally' Filipino.

In 1890 - today they're separate companies and have been since the 1950s

So which is the 'original' san mig?


Thanks for posting. Always good to see a beer deal!

Well if we accept your argument that the original stuff is at least pre 1950, I fail to see how you would qualify your comment that it is better - unless of course you were chugging it back in WW2?

San Miguel is presented, marketed and accepted as a Spanish brand by the world at large and has been for a very long time, I think its fair to accept "Spanish brewed" as original. His point was that it differs between the UK and Spain, in much the same way Guinness does in London and Dublin - that is the source of his discontent.

Only got the 12 x 275ml bottles for £7.99 in my local...

First of all, there may be a Cerveza San Miguel in Spain, but it is not the one that has rights to sell Globally. Manila has the rights to do that, and in fact it is selling San Miguel Pale Pilsen in the US.
Secondly, San Miguel Spain (now by the Mahou Group) has had its origins only in the 1950s when San Miguel Corporation Philippines' CEO Andres Soriano, brought it there. The two companies, though, are not related to each other anymore since the 1946.

In 1946, a beer brewery named, La Segarra was founded. Eleven years from it's inception, it signed a licensing franchise with Andres Soriano, then President of San Miguel Corporation (Philippines) to bring the brand to Spain. They consequently named their company, San Miguel, Fabricas de Cerveza y Malta, S.A. Both companies have since separated and cut off ties. I still wonder though if they still pay royalties to SMC.
Ergo: The San Miguel Beer that is being consumed all over the world is not the one from Spain, it is the one from the Philippines. Even the Spanish San Miguel Beer originated from the Philippine San Miguel Beer. I should write a letter of complaint to San Miguel Spain for that erroneous claim.

San Miguel Beer (from the Philippines) is now being consumed all over Asia (China, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Hongkong and Singapore), The United States and Australia. San Miguel Corporation (Philippines) has breweries all over China, Indonesia and Vietnam, as well as in Australia when the conglomerate bought J. Boag & Sons Breweries down under.
Many beer enthusiast sites review the two beers as one. More often than not they give poor reviews to the spanish beer and generalize all San Miguel Beer as bland/ poor in taste, without even having to taste the original San Miguel Pale Pilsen. These two brands should be reviewed separately.

All of what you say may be correct (I cannot be bothered to even check whereabouts you pasted it from) but I have 3 points:
1) The very words "San Miguel" are Spanish.
2) San Miguel is perceived and accepted in the EU as a Spanish brand.
2) Taste is subjective. In your opinion is just that. Don't impose it upon others.

This is a great deal for a much loved lager, even if you happen not to like it!

What size we looking at here, 275ml or 330ml?

Will be down in a shot if 330s!!

My favourite pint from the boozer at the moment.

1)You do know the Spanish heritage of the Philippines? Are all American brands now English?
2) you said world at large - the original pinoy beer is globally more abundant
2??? Did you mean 3?) Irrelevant to this discussion.

Now you want to drag Spanish ancient history into it. If you would like to see how wrong you are, open your front door and go and find an "average" Joe in the street, ask him where San Miguel comes from.

Sit down, prepare yourself, he is going to say SPAIN - not the Philippines. What you Wikipedia for the benefit of this community and what the public accept as truth are very different. Which do you think matters more?

I am talking about the true original not what people think is the true original. I just want to teach people like you the truth, I can't help it if I have superior intelligence to the 'average Joe' like yourself - I can help them learn the simple truths in life and judge their beliefs based on my vast knowledge of everything.

Interesting argument about filipino vs spanish, really well made arguments on both sides. But how big are the bottles?

And how does it compare to BrewDog?

Regardless of the Philippines history lesson...the proper Spanish San Miguel IS good. It's brewed at something like 5.4%.. not the watered down cack we get here in the UK unfortunately.

Yes what we really need to know is how many of these do we need to drink to get drunk.

I think you worded it a bit better though.

So still none the wiser about the size of the bottles?!

I saw them in the Liscard store this afternoon and they're the 275ml bottles.
Heat, OP.

And size of bottles are?

I think the lack of an answer on the size of the bottles tells us its the 275ml crappy small ones, so this deal is just warm then not hot!
Leedale30 has absolutely owned this thread, you all waffle on about this and that and how superior you are, when in actual fact most are just spotty urchins with half a brain that think they know it all but of course actually know nothing..
When someone comes on here that has knowledge of the product and puts you in your place, you don't like it!
Just because something sounds Spanish, German, English, doesn't mean its origins are..
Brilliant thread and have enjoyed the crack..:p Leedale carry on..

Nice drink for the summer BARGAIN!!!

Saw theses today, best before end of month in store.

Has anybody on HUKD actually drank San Miguel pre 1950's? My earliest memory is the imported 5.4% stuff. I was well chuffed when I saw it cheap on tesco maybe 10 years ago until I realised it was different and now brewed here.
