San Miguel Beer Oktoberfest 2008

Limited edition SMB Oktoberfest Beer.

This year’s Oktoberfest will be the first time San Miguel Beer goes beyond the typical one month celebration, now with 120 days of fiesta that goes on and on all over the country. Coinciding with the festival, San Miguel is coming out with a limited edition San Miguel Oktoberfest Beer — a new beer that’s full flavored yet lite bodied — sweetish in taste and smooth to the finish, as Juned would put it.

A few things on the Oktoberfest: two Guinness world record attempts, a Third Eye Blind concert, and the Oktoberfest Beer. Of course Juned could tell you more about it, I’ve only got photos from press launch.

  12. bkit gnun… ako nakapasok.. kahit wla akung ticket.. ang saya nga dami ko pang nainum..

  13. The 2008 Octoberfest kick off was great. Kaya lang, saan po kaya ang iba pang concert locations? I’m looking everywhere online pero I can’t find anything e.

  14. -SIGH- … after the Eraserheads show with its above-standard concert look i left the Oktoberfest and seeing 3EB feeling cheated. I dont know why i felt that way, but people should start making their shows as good and as memorable as that now famous August 30 concert. Lights, stage and all.

  15. Correct Marben, Let there be quality in shows! People are noticing the difference with the usual PWEDE NA staging and a good show like the E-heads reunion concert.
    Nakakasawa na.
    Add more security and give more value in the concert itself.

  16. Nakakasawa na nga ang mga concert ngayon na dinudumog ng mga jologs na nagbabatuhan at nagpapapansin.

    Sa E-heads concert walang jologs. Ba’t ganun? Kaya naman palang maging malinis ang concert eh.
    Hanggang ngayon nakakakilabot pa din panoorin ang mga video uploads ng Reunion intro sa You Tube. Ang sarap balik-balikan, di katulad ng mga concert na maraming artists pero madaling kalimutan.

  17. Comment from Targrod 11AM of September 10 [r] mas ok sa labas. ang daming inupakang mga emo. =)

    Hindi na nakakatauwa mga upakan na yan. Nakaranas na ba kayo ng concert na merong UNITY, PEACE, FUN, LOVE and ROCKIN’ GOOD TIME na hindi Woodstock?
    Nung August 30, once in a lifetime yun. Eraserheads Reunion Concert.

    Sana mauilit muli. Ang di nakagusto ng show obviously adik sa negativity. Wala inupakang mga emo dun at walang papanisin na jologs. Just a simle great show with great lights, one great band and great stage.

  18. oh, i’m always for peace, Peace.

    Medyo out of context yung nangyari dito. Natuwa lang kasi ako dahil yung mga pulis na mismo ang gumagalaw dahil dun sa mga jologs na nanggugulo with the peace and order.

    Ang swerte nating mga nanood nung concert dahil lahat sigurado may pinag-aralan at hindi nakapasok ang hindi dapat makapasok.

    and the Septemberfest, to start with, is obviously related with booze. kaya nga naging successful ang e-heads concert. hindi sya naging free. think about it. free tapos cancelled. bad mix.

    at kahit anong concert na yata ngayon dinudumog ng mga jologs (i’m starting to find jologs very derigatory). kaya security ang number one priority dapat ng isang event. like nitong septemberfest, if they can spend millions para dun sa fireworks display, they should’ve added more security instead of just asking the mandaluyong police for the help. and the place. sobrang sikip, bad events management. =)

    hindi po ako naghahanap ng debate. yun lan po.

  19. Targod…Correct ka. Bad events management nga yung September fest. May nakuryente pa nga na mga crew eh. Kung matalino yung events management: isang tawag lang sa Meralco, may wireguard na agad ang high tenson wire malapit sa stage kung saan sila na-electrocute. Alam ko ito dahil sa security kami ng Earth Day sa Morato. Mas mababa pa yung high tension wires sa Morato.
    Hindi magse-set-up yung mga tao dun kung walang high tension wire guard.

    No Debate dito…we all agree na sana ma-educate na ang mga audience at mga taga events.

    At tama ka kwajno, nakakasawa na yung mga concerts na ang mga audience eh yung mga nagbabatuhan. Kaso yun yung audience na na-breed ng mga Pulp Summer Slam eh.
    Nung 90’s may mga gulo din sa mga concerts pero hindi kasing gulo ng mga “jologs” ngayon. Wala nang ibang tawag sa kanila kung hindi “jologs”.

  20. yes oktoberfest na talaga! we just had oktoberfest at bluewave macapagal last thursday and it was fine.
