I'm a firm believer in that a full wine cellar and humidor is a good thing for life and happiness - this is the best I could do on short notice:

Beer Lao makes your life grand in lieu of some decent vino? Surely not!

Clarification requested .....

Hopefully this will answer your clarification request MGV12, your concern is duly noted. I'm fond of a good grape when reasonably priced :wink: Past experience has taught me to NOT send a non-wine drinker over the Mekong to the duty free shop. Also, I did mention that this pile of beer was the best I could do on short notice as it is delivered to my rental house and is MUCH cheaper than Leo. :D

Arrived at MIL's house last night after another long drive from the rental house up north. The camera was packed so no original pics but this might give you an idea :lol:

In my humble opinion Beer Lao is one of the best beers around and if I could secure a steady supply at a resonable price my fridge would always have a few in it. When available in Pattaya it runs about the same price as Hineken but is difficult to source, Macro had some but 39 Baht a bottle and not available by the case.

I thought I might just throw in the useful bit of information for all you beer drinkers who like the odd drop: If you want to circumvent the stupid hours you can buy beer at, just go and buy in bulk...over 9 litres and you can buy it at anytime of day. I used to buy a few bottles of wine at a time and if it didn't hit the 9 litre mark I'd just throw in a tin cask or two of beer....I think they hold up to 5 litres. I'll certainly be buying a few of them for the house christening.....I wonder what the monks will think?

I have found Federbrau to be one of the best available, 57 Bht a large bottle with Heineken now at 65 or something like that.

PP: no need to be humble - beerlao is a damn good brew! Sadly, my connection will die when I make my last run up north. Not to brag but I paid 450bt per box delivered to my rental house. PM me if you're in the neighborhood - there's always a cold beer on ice here.
