wild chili ale

a.k.a. chili beer in Tagalog

wild chili ale  (wayld tsi-li a-le; Tagalog alcoholic beverage; dw Eng. wild + chili + ale)  [n.] a chili-flavored craft beer.

Craft beers are those that are manufactured in craft brewery (a.k.a. microbrewery) which is a brewery that produces a small amount of beer.

Craft beer in the country actually uses imported grains (barley, hop, etc) for brewing.  However, the wild chili are sourced locally that may include our very own intensely hot siling labuyo (Philippine bird's eye chili).  Other ingredients, such as sugar, yeast, and water can also be sourced locally.

The label suggests you serve this beer better with those familiar Pinoy delicacies.
