In 1890, La Fabrica de Cerveza de San Miguel, opened the first brewery in South-east Asia, using the best ingredients from Europe, Canada and Australia to create a unique beer in the world – becoming Asia’s top-selling beer. Throughout generations, San Miguel Beer would become an icon among beer drinkers.

They foster development through internationalisation, innovation and continuous improvement and firmly committed to society. MSM is a family owned Spanish brewery and market leader in the Spanish market with nearly half of all beer sold.. The Spanish brewery from Madrid, Mahou, merged as mentioned with San Miguel in 2000.
