While beer drinking is age old in Bangkok, it used to be limited to 3.5 liter towers of Chang and Singh served in raucous beergardens that had little variance in terms of theme, design, and vibe. All that has changed massively, both in place and taste. Bangkok now has superb beer, although you will pay dearly for it due to the excessively high customs duties and alcohol taxes. Places like Mikkeller, Pijiu, Hair of the Dog, Bottles of Beer, CRAFT, and Wishbeer Home Bar have changed the face of brew here, serving up superb craft beer offerings, both on tap and in the bottle. These brew pubs, along with newcomers Mash and rooftop venue Brewski head the list of a growing number of chill out spots serving American and European craft or micro beers. Local Thai craft brewers like Golden Coins Taproom are also hot on the scene, and they get around the draconian anti-brewing laws for small pubs by having their beer made in Vietnam and then sent on over. Tawandang Pub actually makes their own beer, one of the few places licensed to do this, and while it isn't really craft beer, it's a fun place to go for drinking, eating, and dancing. One thing is for sure, you wont be shortlisted anymore when it comes to beer drinking in Bangkok.
