Mikkeller probably doesn’t need much introduction nor do they need help with spreading their name but I still thought I’d write a bit about their new venture which is Mikkeller Discovery. As could be imagined from the name of the place their newest bar can be found at the shopping mall Siam Discovery.
The grand opening was on the 20th of April. It’s basically a bottle shop selling their beers but it’s also part craft beer bar. That of course means it’s a great place to sit down and have a cold one while you’re girlfriend is shopping in one of the shopping malls around Siam.
Mikkeller Discovery has a selection of over 50 bottles but also 10 different taps. People say it’s quite difficult to find behind interiors, pillows and clothing but has generally received good reviews.
Don’t forget to check out their original bar in Ekkamai which already has been up and running for more than 5 years and the newer Mikkeller Ari.

Yo! This list is still under construction. We decided to make two different lists for beers within Bangkok and craft beer bars outside of Bangkok, that’s how big the craft beer scene in Thailand is right now, isn’t that fantastic? Maybe in the future, we will still have to divide this article into articles like craft beer in Isaan and craft beer in Northern Thailand, but for now, these two are enough. This list tries to gather all the craft beer bars in Bangkok into the same place, it will take some time to finish it, but we’re doing our best to make it as comprehensive as possible.
Craft beer bars marked with * indicate that they are also brewing their own beer.

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.

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.

The craft beer scene in Northern Thailand is booming. There’s plenty of places you can find some good Thai Craft Beers, and they also have their own brewers.

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
