Phuket Brewery - proof Thailand can make good beer
Phuket finally has a decent source of beer since the opening of Phuket Brewery near Tesco Lotus in Kathu and according to Jaimie Monk the beer is good:
So, what's Phuket Brewery all about? Well, for me, number one - (the word Brewery is a hint) - BEER! The microbrewery makes 3 different beers, a dark beer, a lager and a weizenbier (wheat beer). It looks good, it tastes great. Normal price 130 Baht for half liter, but only 75 Baht during happy hour. There are also 0.3 liter glasses and huge beer towers containing 3 or 5 liters - good for large parties.
Phuket Brewery has a good website with lots of photos and information on their brewing process:
I am very impressed and if I get a chance to visit Phuket again then this will be the first place I visit.
