Irvine, CA – January 22, 2015 – In 1889, a well-known Manila businessman, Don Enrique María Barretto de Ycaza y Esteban, applied for a royal grant from Spain to establish a brewery in the Philippines.  He was awarded the grant for a period of twenty years.  On September 29, 1890, San Miguel was declared open for business.  Located at 6 Calzada de Malacañang (later called Calle Avilés), the brewery took its name from its neighborhood, (suburb or district) of San Miguel.
