The brewery received the Royal Grant from the King of Spain to brew beer in the Philippines, which was then a Spanish colony.

In 1914, San Miguel Brewery began exporting San Miguel Beer to Hong Kong. The San Miguel brand name is known in Chinese as 生力 and the San Miguel Beer product name is known as 生力啤酒.
