Asia Brewery is a brewery founded in 1982 in Makati City, the Philippines.[1] It is one of only two breweries in the Philippines,[2] and is the smaller of the two, with only 10% market share. It is owned by Lucio Tan, listed by Forbes Magazine as the second richest Filipino in the Philippines, with assets worth $2.8 billion.[3] It produces malt beverages like beer, shandy, iced tea, bottled water and carbonated soft drinks. Its sister company Tanduay Distillers, Inc. produces hard liquor. It somewhat mimics the structure of its bigger rival San Miguel Corporation, except that ABI has no food and agribusiness divisions.

Both waters are available from 250ml up to 6 liters per bottle.Absolute is the second biggest-selling bottled water brand in the market behind SMC's Wilkins. Both Absolute and Summit were launched in 1992. In 1995, Q Shandy was launched to compete with SMC's Cali. In 1999, Pacific Sun iced tea was launched. In 2009,...
