San Miguel beer now brewed in Nepal

An official spokesperson at the Mt. Everest Brewery, located in the country of Nepal, announced that the company began brewing and bottling San Miguel beer last month.

The beginning of production was the culmination of an agreement between the San Miguel Corp. and Mt. Everest Brewery Ltd., wherein Everest acquired the license to brew, bottle and market the beer in Nepal. The Mt. Everest Brewery is also licensed to export San Miguel to Tibet and Bhutan.

Last November, Mt. Everest began brewing operations at its facility in Bharatpur, which lies less than 100 miles from Katmandu, Nepal's capital. The brewery will produce San Miguel in three different packages for the Nepalese market: 650- and 325- ml. bottles, and 355-ml. cans.

San Miguel Corp. said it has been exporting its beer to Nepal in cans since 1980. The current growth of the tourist industry provided good opportunities to expand the brand there, officials explained.
