Beer in Thailand
« on: April 19, 2015, 07:15:16 PM »
Here is an article from the Independent talking about craft beers in Thailand:-

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-drink/news/craft-beer-movement-arrives-in-thailand-as-bars-pop-up-all-over-bangkok-10176506.html

They mention a starting price of 180 Baht which is almost certainly for a small bottle. Recently I was along Sukhumvit and the price of a small Leo was 90-120 Baht.  Better to buy in a shop in Korat for only 52 Baht for a large one.

a small Leo @90-120 Baht  @47 bht to the £ still ain't cheap

yes  Better to buy in a shop in Korat for only 52 Baht for a large one  will leave you more to donate  :evilgrin

I know we shouldn't judge the prices by the UK...But   Carlsberg (30x440ml)  UK price £16

Just saying   :cheers

Reading the article looks like big business and if people are here on holiday the expense is easily overlooked

Operating a brewery in Thailand isn’t easy. The country imposes the highest taxes on the brewing and importation of beer in South-east Asia – between 300 and 400 per cent....wonder why that is ::)
