What Are You Paying For A Beer These Days?

Recommended Posts

The range is Soi 4 which is where I usually drink was 80 baht the lowest up to 130 baht (was told by someone else) in a normal beer bar GoGos generally 150-160 baht.

But in Phnom Penh happy hour in one particular place was 2 for 1 of draught $1.00 ... so that's 50 cents a beer (15 baht) Pretty good value in my books. Will be re-thinking my travel plans in future.

Cambodia has to do something to get you to go there.

 

p.s. Happy hour in some Bangkok bars is still in the 75 to 90 baht range, usually just Chang though. Many of the go-go bars have gone insane with their drink prices, especially lady drinks.

Funny enough I had a great time....really enjoyed it. None of the "buy me drink" crap everywhere you turn like in BKK.

Try the Dollhouse on Soi Cowboy, almost none of the you-buy-me-cola hassle plus happy hour until 9.30pm. Can't say that about many Bangkok go-go bars. :p

Bottled Beer either Bia Ha Noi or Bia Sai Gon 15,000 VND for a 450 ml bottle thats approx 22.5 THB state controlled price. Both a decent drop 4.2% proof

 

Normally stick to Bia Hoi, local brewery "Fresh Beer" that is 15,000 VND for a 2 Liter pitcher which equates to 5 THB per 450 ml. :_party:

As I've said before, I suppose it is the Black Tiger we had in Bangkok 8 or 10 years ago. It was a nice dark Lager, but the Thais wouldn't buy it. :(

 

In the 1980s there was even a Thai gin, not the greatest but cheap and drinkable. Again, the Thais wouldn't buy it and there weren't enouh Farangs around to make it profitable. Anyone heard of Tumbler? It was the only Thai "whisky" that was actually drinkable, taste much like a cheap brand of Scotch. It vanished in a few years too. Couldn't compete with Mekhong and Saengsom.
