Welcome. You have just entered the dark realm of the most extensive list on Thai Craft Beer Bars outside of Bangkok. We all know the feeling of travelling to another city being unable to find a place to get a good Craft Beer. This list will be simple, there will not be a huge number of pictures or descriptions, basically, it will just be a long list of where you can find Thai Craft Beer all around Thailand. From Khorat in Isaan, to Chiang Rai in the north, and Yala in the south of Thailand.
I have left out Bangkok is simply because of there being too many to list. I also have a list called The Best Craft Beer Bars in Bangkok. The places with * also brew their own beer.
Craft Beer Bars in Central Thailand
Naturally, the Thai Craft Beer scene has spread from Bangkok to the regions just outside of it. It is still arguably the hottest region for craft beer in Thailand, but other provinces are slowly catching up.

Tree House Café
E.A.T. at Khao Yai* (Khao Yai)
Tapster Craft beer & Bar
Fong Bear Sukhothai
Craft Beer Bars in Eastern Thailand
The Eastern Craft Beer Scene in Thailand has been one of the strongest ones from the beginning. With popular Craft Beers as Triple Pearl, Wizard Brew, CupG Brewing, and Brewrapha all coming from the region, it’s no surprise that there will be plenty of good bars as well.

If you’re travelling to Cambodia, why not take a look at the list of Craft Beer Bars in Cambodia.
The reason I chose this beer was because of the logo. Big Bad Beer is something I like, and obviously, something I want to drink. It was also something I wanted to end my night with. And I was not disappointed.
This Thai craft beer from Silom Beer has a nice mixture of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. None of these flavours were overpowering, instead, it was a very balanced beer. For some reason, I could feel some fruit notes in the flavour, and the beer was also very easy to drink. It doesn’t matter how much I generally like the dark malts lingering on my palate, this was still a very good and refreshing stout.
The Bad Bear Stout could have had a heavier body, but for a change, it is nice to drink an easy drinking stout that is tastier than a Guinness.
Made by Thai Craft Brewer Silom Beer. No ABV on the label!
Name: Bad Bear Stout
Brewer: Silom Brewing
Brewed in: N/A
The Fat Cow is a small corner bar at Lad Phrao in Bangkok, that has received notable success for a few different reasons. Part of the success is because they are serving Thai Craft Beers that come in “limited editions”, but also because they have no international craft beers and, of course, for their delicious burgers.
It’s a small place so it can get very crammed at times. It’s a bit of a place that is either too busy or too quiet. Nevertheless, I have always enjoyed my time at the Fat Cow, the owner Manuel is also very friendly. If you’re looking for staff that are very knowledgeable about Thai Craft Beers, you should maybe not visit when Manuel isn’t there, but even his regular staff are slowly learning the drill.
Prices at this place are very reasonable for Bangkok standards. Most Thai Craft Beers on tap can be had for 160-200 baht.
Manuel, the owner of The Fat Cow has also recently opened a Thai Craft Beer bar at Petchaburi road, called The Fat Cow on the Roof (Update, it has changed owners since of October 2018), it has a similar selection of food and beers, but a rooftop view is always a nicer view than looking at Lad Phrao road in rush hour. The Fat Cow is truly one of the OG bars staying true to the craft beer scene in Bangkok. I highly recommend.
Location: Corner of Ladphrao soi 15
