Thai Beer

Thailand may not be as famous as some countries for its alcohol: like Scotland, Ireland and the USA for their whiskey, or Japan for its sake or Britain, Ireland, Belgium and Germany for their beers, or France and Italy for their wines, but Thai beer is quite passable. Thailand also produces a small quantity of good red wine.

Most Thais drink 'lao', which means alcohol or spirit. Beer is thought of as foreign or 'farang', which means Caucasian, in a round-about way. I read somewhere once that Pattaya alone is host to one million visitors a year and most of those would prefer to drink beer than spirits.

Thai beer is stronger than most Western beers. In Thailand, 5% is considered the minimum, rather than the norm or even strong. Thailand's favourite beer is 'Chang', which means elephant and is 6.4% It was first developed in co-operation with Carlsberg of Denmark, which also makes an Elephant Beer.

However, these days, Chang is made without Carlsberg. A few years ago, Chang underwent a 'change of recipe', or a more rigorous process of standardisation (quality control). Until then, Chang beer from different boxes often tasted completely different and, people said, were of different strengths.

It was said by many that 6.4% was only an approximation - it could be between 4% and 10% ABV!

I don't know about that, but the taste did vary a lot and sometimes it was quite horrible. Not that everyone took to the new variety right away - I didn't either. I used to drink Chang, but it is too strong for me really.

Chang also makes other types of beer at 5%, but the price is the same as the 6.4% and so not many people drink it. Certainly not Thais.
