Thai Beer is the most popular alcoholic drink in Thailand. There are a of local beer brands that you can try in Thailand and the 3 major beer brands Singha, Leo and Chang are present all over the country. Here you will find an introduction to the most popular Thai beers and beer price in Thailand. Singha beer is the first beer produced in Thailand and is one of the most popular beers in the country, brewed by the Boon Rawd Brewery.
Singha is also the best known Thai beer outside of Thailand as it is exported to many foreign countries. It has been brewed since and many locals claim that it is the only real Thai beer. The name "Singha" is derived from the Sanskrit word for "lion" so you will see the white label representing a lion Singha from mythology in almost every bar or restaurant in Thailand. Singha Lager Draft Beer is delivered by the brewery in 30 liter barrels and has a more intense taste than the normal lager beer. You can buy a can of this beer brand at the store for 35 THB.
Singha is often a few baht more expensive than the other top beer brands in Thailand so it is mainly drunk by high-earning Thais and tourists. Perhaps that is why more budget travelers prefer Leo or Chang. Chang beer Elephant beer was launched in by the breweries of Thai Beverage or just ThaiBev, one of the largest beverage companies in Southeast Asia, and is available nationwide.
Chang brand is known for its logo with the 2 elephants looking at each other on the label of the green bottles. The beer is brewed from rice and has more tart taste than Singha. The normal Chang beer Chang Classic has an alcohol content of 5. In contrast to the Classic, it is not brewed from rice but from malt. Chang is most probably the most popular beer for tourists visiting Thailand. It is usually the cheapest of the best Thai beer brands on offer. The price of a can of Chang beer in the store is in the range of THB.
Leo beer , currently the most admired beer in Thailand occupying about half of the local beer market, is also brewed by the Boon Rawd Brewery. Many beer enthusiasts are unaware that the same brewery owns Leo and Singha brands.
The word Leo comes from the Greek and means lion. The label on the bottle shows a leopard rather than a lion staring at you. The taste is very similar to the older sister Singha, but the price has been wisely lowered. Leo is also served as a draft beer in pubs. Leo Beer price per bottle is THB. The beer has received multiple awards and, like Chang, is very popular with Thais and foreigners.
Among other Thai beers, Archa beer is one of the newest beer brands in Thailand and deserves a mention. Apart from Chang, ThaiBev produces another quality beer, Archa. Archa is a beer with bubble content comparable to champagne which tastes slightly sweeter than Singha and is pretty strong with an alcohol content of 5. Archa is a slightly cheaper than most Thai beer brands as it focuses on the economy market. Archa is still a very young brand so it is not very popular with Thais and Westerners. Almost everywhere in Thailand you will also find some international beer brands, much more expensive than the local ones and not necessarily better.
The most famous is definitely Tiger beer from Singapore. This beer is popular with locals as well as tourists. A good beer that you should definitely try is Beerlao from neighboring Laos. You can find this beer in every 7-Eleven and, despite the fact that it is imported, it is still affordable. You can also find brands like Heineken and Carlsberg in the touristy areas over the country. Of course, these are usually a bit more expensive than Chang or Leo. You can usually find some types of interesting craft beers in Thailand in special bars or shops, mostly in Bangkok. The craft beer scene is also growing in Thailand, however, strict laws and severe penalties for home brewing are suffocating the industry.
In , the laws were made even stricter. Since the regime change, Thailand has been tightening its alcohol laws so it won't be easy to find an alternative to the commercial lager brands in Thailand. There might be some products for experiment but be prepared to spend much more.
