The San Miguel Beermen were a professional basketball team that began playing in the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) from 2012 to 2013. The team was from the Philippines and owned by San Miguel Corporation (SMC). This franchise was separate and distinct from the original Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) franchise. The Beermen played their home games at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

History[edit]

In July 2011, SMC announced its participation in the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) beginning in the 2012 ABL season,[1] as the San Miguel Beermen - a franchise distinct from its PBA franchise.

In June 2013, the Beermen won its first ABL title, the 2013 ABL Playoffs, defeating the Indonesia Warriors.[2] The team disbanded shortly after without any formal announcement.[3][4]
