Thaiger Talk Quiz #001 - Beer in Thailand


Recommended Posts

Well I did get 5 out of 5 but have to admit the last question was a simple guess, actually never tried it but when I see it I'll give it a go.

Its the one I guessed at but never drunk. It is a "Phuket" priced beer and as it is 5%, same as singha,  and I think around 130 baht per large bottle then don't think I shall rush out to buy it

I actually first tried it in Koh Kong in Cambodia a few years ago. Goes down nicely, different to the others. Interesting that it’s the only beer that conforms to that old law.

It's very good but exxy as they have to export/re-import and pay the higher taxes due to draconian laws.

Just out of interest Slacker77, which is your Thai beer of choice? I’m guessing Chang, because of Everton? 😎

On a related topic

Not many Thai places here in Vancouver have Thai beers at the moment because of Covid

 

Yesterday for lunch, a new place we went had Chang!

1st one in 3 months that had Thai beer 

 

I prefer Chang but happy to have a Singha with Thai food, as well

Same-same. Beer and English Footbon, the two things I know less than nothing about.

I know the original owner who made it and then finally sold out years later. He originally  brewed at the Thailand San Miguel brewery but some years back that got expensive and I believe they could not keep up with orders so it did a switch brewing to Cambodia. They could be doing from Thailand again and still Cambodia but I am not up on the gossip now. Might make sense for both now because the North American and EU markets were growing really fast back then. There was also another Thai beer called Nakhon who I also new the owner, but last word I heard was that got bought out by Phuket. Small world amongst these guys. Anyway Phu is a pretty good beer when icy cold. That’s about all I am open to say about it.

Yeah, I’m a Leo drinker as well. When I first went to Thailand in the 90s I drank Singha because it was the only beer I’d heard of. Switched to Chang for a few years (the beer promotion girls can be very persuasive 🍺🇹🇭) and then finally about three years ago did a proper taste test and surprise surprise, liked Leo best.
