ABOUT VINTAGE (CHAMPAGNE) BEERS
Another luxury class beverage brought to you by
YATS WINE CELLARS
Leading supplier of special products for Manila’s sophisticated wine lovers
The Philippines is well known as a country of beer drinkers. In addition to the world-famous San Miquel brand, sophisticated beer drinkers have developed a penchant for other high-quality ales and stouts imported from famous beer producing countries like Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Germany and America. It wasn’t until recently that Manila’s beer aficionados have discovered a whole new class of luxury in the world of beer. Dubbed Champagne beers and also referred to as Vintage beers, these beers are not like the other beers. They are made to improve with age, similar to wine and Vintage Champagne.
YATS Wine Cellars procured a small batch of these beers between 2005 and 2007, set aside in one of its wine cellars to age slowly into maturity. Just like how wines need to be stored, the beers have to be kept in relatively cool temperature in a cellar away from light and physical disturbances.
The Vintage Beers undergo a triple fermentation process. It is “bottle conditioned” to complete its final fermentation after bottling. The slow fermentation enables the beer to pick up flavors that make the beer rich and complex, deep and smooth, and although they taste different from ordinary beers, they are nevertheless very true to form, a beer.
The high alcohol strength (8 to 12%) serves the purpose of preserving the integrity of the beer through years of ageing. A vintage beer is never served too cold. 8-12ºC is the recommended range with the final selection depending on personal preferences and just as importantly the food we choose to enjoy with our vintage beer.
Tonight YATS WINE CELLARS is pleased to present for your sampling pleasures a few selections of carefully aged vintage beers from our wine cellars.
Don de Dieu 2005
La Maudite 2005
Matured Vintage beers have been enjoyed with a very wide variety of food, from Japanese to Mexican, Chinese to Thai, burgers to pizzas and spicy Indian to subtle German cuisines. General guideline for food pairing is to watch out for weight matchups, lighter food with lighter styled vintage beers.

Earlier in the year, Yats Wine Cellars entered into a project with Magosaburo forming a long-term partnership that extends well beyond the traditional boundaries of a restaurant-supplier relationship. The owners of this fine establishment are deeply committed to delivering a dining experience befitting a wine-sensitive restaurant of the modern era. Several components of that plan have already taken shape, including a well-balanced 120-line wine list supported by a walk-in wine cellar as well as careful scrutiny in selecting wines that pair well with the delicate Japanese cuisine of this fine restaurant. In progress is an intensive training program to produce a few professionals wine stewards, an investment that not many restaurateurs are willing to undertake.
Magosaburo Restaurant and Wine Lounge is located at 28th Street The Fort Strip, 1630 Taguig City, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila.
