#7,081: The Red Horse “Happy Horse” Bottle!

Give way to the happiest horse in the world!

Like some other countries, Philippines has a good set of local beers, internationally recognized, exported in all parts of the world, loved by foreigners who visited the country and abroad. But one of our beers got a very intriguing story behind. A story that amazes each Filipino, or probably just anyone who gets to hear this myth.

Once upon a time, in a far far away land called the Philippines…

Amid those Red Horse Bottles, there’s this one horse out there that looks a bit different, because when every horse shows a poker face, one random horse seems to be getting a lot of fortune, probably this horse has attained the highest level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, this horse is smiling!

And while everybody in the Philippines knows that the Red Horse beer has an extra strong kick of alcohol, The Red Horse Happy Horse is believed to have a much stronger kick than the rest of its fellas.

Some people say that the manufacturer has a different mix for these selected happy horse bottles, they say the beer inside these red horse bottles are more concentrated. But of course, there is no empirical data presented about this. Only affirmations by the lucky ones who enjoyed the “unique” experience with this Happy Horse.

I personally tried the Happy Horse bottle before, somehow it tasted the same as the rest. Did I feel the stronger kick? Yeah right.

But wait, there’s more….

Around the table with your friends, you can raise your bottle as high as you wanted to boast that you are drinking the most elite horse of them all.

Probably it’s psychological also, the power of the mind, when you’re thinking that such is a very strong beer compared to the rest of its kind, your mind dictates it to your body, hence, making you believe and feel that it really is stronger than the rest.

Whether the beer inside a Happy Horse Bottle is chemically different from the rest, or just an intriguing story that has been going around for like.. forever, screw it and just enjoy  the myth you’ve heard about it, savor this special bottle found only in the Philippines. Aren’t you glad that you are in a country where even a beer icon shows that yes, it’s more fun in the Philippines.

The simple joy of being with your friends while chilling out, becomes even much happier, because there’s this myth and there’s this horse you get to see smiling, should you be the lucky one to get a hold of it.

The Red Horse – Happy Horse Bottle – one simple joy of being a Filipino.

  1. Hahaha. Definitely something I can relate to. IMHO, Red Horse tastes better for me than Pale Pilsen or San Mig Light because of the “sweetness”. San Miguel Premium is the best tasting for me now, though.

    Separately, I remember meeting an artist(painter) who told me that there’s a secret slogan for this product: “Red Horse: For ladies(men) in a hurry!”. It’s up to you to decipher what the artist mean’t. I’ll never tell. ^_^

    Seems like I found another favorite blog here.

  2. Great article, I believe the first year Red Horse was offered it had a very strong kick and hence garnered the respect of drinkers. Drinking one or two bottles of Red Horse back then gave you the alcohol kick compared to about 7 or eight Pilsen bottles. Some San Miguel friends said Red Horse was the company’s response to drinkers out there who always drank a mix of two San Miguel Grande bottles and one Ginebra San Miguel (bilog). And this mix could be what the happy horse bottle contains. It may be a myth but one thing is for sure: I agree that drinking beer with friends or family is the best joy we can get 🙂
