    Hi there everyone. I'm getting married in Feb and want to know of a place to source wine, beer and spirits for the big day. I have some guests coming from overseas so don't want cheap wine or local beer.

    Any suggestions of places in Dumaguete? I'm looking at Sophia's Wine Store. Does Big Boys Liquor still exist?

    Thanks in advance!

    A friend gets a free bottle of wine when he buys a case of wine at Why Not. The deli across (sideways) from Bo’s Coffee on the blvd has abroad selection of wine. Can’t help you with beer.

    Hi ya

    There is a Chinese grocery store opposite Bernard’s electronics store on the South side of the market, they have had the cheapest cartons of beer that I could find, if you order a number of cartons you may get a bigger discount.

    Stock arrival day is normally Thursday, Wednesday wala stock.


    If I have the location wrong can someone please correct

    You have some good responses on where to go looking. Big Boys closed quite a while ago.

    very good wines also in Robinsons and Lee Plaza / Hypermart, just search and try a bit between the sweet stuff and the most common here, the Carlo Rossi, which I wouldn't recommend at all, that's the wine for people who don't drink wine and have no other friends than Carlo. Also depends on your price range, around 300 - 400 some good South Americans, South Africans and Australians already available. Beer - if you cannot find beer here in the Philippines, you are really lost, sorry. Some "exotic" beers also in Why Not, Deli near Bo's at boulevard, Lee, Hyper, Robinsons.

    I'm looking for Asia breweries, can't find any Sari sari that sells their beer. I've seen some of their beer in Robinson's at silly prices. I buy beer by the cases.

    Great, thanks everyone. Really helpful. Specifically, I'm looking for Prosecco and possibly some craft beers. When I arrive in the country I'll check out some of your suggestions. Thanks again!

    Oh and I'm also after Plantation Rum and some decent Gin for G&T's.
