Just a stone throw away from bad bird is smoky bastard, while other stalls here have come and gone while this place seems to here as long as i can remember. Well thank goodness cause hole in the wall needs some good local craft beer apart from superb food and desserts.

Since im a fan of the brewery and perect pint, i surely do love it here, we sometimes stayed here till closing hours of hole in the wall and buy a few good beer back to my friends place nearby.

Before going into local craft beers, they also do serve cocktails either by glass or by carafe, the latters perfect for big group, mojoto by 540. And oh by the way i remember having Whiskey sour here before, it contains lemon, egg white, house bitters, and wild turkey??? Haha, i forgot to ask wheres the wild turkey in the drink but for someone who likes whiskey, this one is good.

As for their local craft beers, there are some familiar ones that can be found at perfect pint like fish rider, katipunan and indio.

Some brands are even bame to the provinces includes sierra madre wheat ale, chocolate hills porter and dumaguete dubbel. Others were more locally known like juan brew. Last night since im going with wheat beer i got tarsier wheat beer and pedro wheat beer both at around 200 each. I could say i much like the pedro wheat beer.

Pleasant surprise from Smoky Bastard! This honey k├Âlsch from Palawan Brewery has a subtle floral bitter taste coming from the addition of Palawan honey. Fresh twist on an almost forgotten German mix. So happy with this choice! 128513

Best seats in all of Hole in the Wall! 128588 They sell local beers, no food, but they will gladly let you sit on their bar whatever grub it is you're chowing on.

I love that they support local beer brewers. During my very first visit when Hole in the Wall just opened, they only had around 3 beers. Now they have an entire lineup! Oh and they made my day when I found out they had Pedro's Elementary English Ale when it first came out. 127866

Our bartender was very knowledgeable with the beers on display. There are so many to choose from and I liked seeing various craft beers on the bar. I asked for recommendations and the bartender described those I was interested in. My decision was mostly based on the pretty labels. This Tropic Haze is a little sweet, not too dark and bitter, and went to well with our mid-spicy Bad Bird.

Wish it were colder pa. I prefer drinking beer straight from the bottle, without watering it down with ice.

I'm partial to whiskey straight up, but this Whiskey Sour is a good way to ease non-whiskey drinkers into the regions of amber-colored delight.

It's not as sour as other variations. They use Wild Turkey bourbon (made from distiller corn mash, which gives it more bite than Irish whiskey or Scotch), but features a more caramel and "melted vanilla ice cream" taste.

If you're curious about why they serve 500 peso cocktails elsewhere and people still buy them, this is a good preview of that.

Interested to try their host of craft beers. They have a good selection than most bars I've seen around.

One thing that I love about hole in the wall is smoky bastard. They have this great variety of local craft beer. I'm happy that local craft beer are starting to get known here locally. Its similar to 3rd wave coffee shop, craft beer is more focus on brewing techniques to give a more distinct flavor. Drinking craft beer lets you get to appreciate more the taste of beer. Its not the kind of beer you want to get drunk after heartbreak. Its more of a casual drinking after long tiring office day.
Smoky bastard name upon hearing it gave me a notion that they serve some smoked ribs didn't realize it would be a beer counter. I love smoky bastard behind the counter couch. Give you a feel like your in a private room or a secret hide out that you could chill.
I tried their available draft beer during our visit, the katipunan signal no. 1 stout and the Pedro endless summer wheat ale. I prefer the Pedro wheat ale. It was fruity and light. It reminds me of hoegaarden. The Katipunan stout has a stronger flavor. It was nice but it was on the heavy end.
Overall great go to place for a bottle/glass of craft beer.
