(Filipino) Luning Bonifacio Ira. Philippine Beer: Its Life & Times.

Illus. from photographs by Nik Ricio & Nelson Rivera. 11.75x8", jacket. First Edition. Manila: Philippine Advertising Counselors, [1981].

While there is a chapter specific to Philippine beer and its breweries, this book is more of a sociology of beer drinking in the Philippines, with interesting, candid photographs of people drinking in bars, in rice paddies, on boats, etc. The scenes evoke a time and place in the country that bring memories both joyful and nostalgic. A fascinating account. Fine condition.
