Get a chance to win a 3-day, 2-night stay at Rieseling Boracay for 2 plus a flight to Boracay with Pedro Craft Beer! Just post a photo of yourself enjoying a Pedro craft beer with the hashtag #TakeMeToBoracay during the month of July. A winner will be randomly selected using the hashtag and announced on August 1, 2016.
*For those asking what craft beer is:
Craft beer is made in a traditional (non-mechanical way) way by a small brewery. A bottle of Pedro Craft beer costs anywhere between P180 and P250. It might sound expensive but it tastes better and has more alcohol, so you’ll buy less cans or bottles of beer and end up saving!
