    makro used to sell it, usually hidden away with the spirits. They never really pushed the stuff, probably got disappointed with the sales and stopped

    It looks like the whole of Bangkok has run out of Beer Lao.

    In all the pubs I go to it's 'mai mee' and the last time I looked also Villa only had Lao Dark available.

    ^ the light is crisp and clean with such alchemical stench as the local produce and the dark is the only local dark available, and its not bad.

    It's not quite as terrible as all the other beers you get here, unless you go to Vientiane to drink it where most bars seem to unplug the fridges at night turning it into beer vinegar.

    The daft kunts do that at the minimarts as well, they think it saves em electricity , have a minimart near me in vientiane that has all the choice tucker a discerning punter could wish for, steaks, seafood etc. When i saw them unplugging the freezers for the night i stopped buying there

    They also have it at Big C extra on Pattaya Klang.

    Was about 1000 for the case, and individual bottles are 45 baht. That was the light, they didn't have any dark.

    *bump* for those interested.

    I was in Makro Phuket today and they have cases of beer Lao light and dark stacked up high in stock again.

    Not cheap though, IIRC it was 900+ for a case of 330ml bottles of light and a bit over 1,000 for the dark.

    It makes a Mockery of the concept of inter SE Asian Asian free trade doesn't it?

    ^ It does pedro, Perhaps the Thais are savvy enough to realise beerlao is serious competition for the (IMHO) very ordinary thai beers, and deliberately try to price it out of the lower income earners?

    True enough, even the standard BL is a mile away from the standard Thai stuff, but the dark is almost another category.

    I had to pop over the border on Thursday, so got my self 6 super size cans, and did a tasting against big cans of Chang, no comparison in my opinion.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking
