San Miguel Brewery Postcard

Under a royal grant from Spain, Enrique Barretto y de Ycaza opened La Fabrica de Cerveza de San Miguel, Southeast Asia's first brewery, on September 29, 1890 at 6 Calzada de MalacaƱang in Manila, near the Palace of the Governor-General of the Philippines. He named the company after the section of Manila in which he lived and worked.
