One thing I have noticed after a recent break from it is how rotten you feel the following day after over indulging on Thai beer. You don't get the same feeling from drinking beer in other countries - there are definitely some nasties in the beer here. Go easy on it!

Well obviously there are worse but Thai beer has to be up there on the killer chemical hangover list. I was referring in general to western beers.

I'm not sure it's not just down to the strength and style of beer because a night on draft continental lager leaves me feeling pretty similar.

Yes and after a few pints of Fullers ESB you are fairly guaranteed to be feeling a bit under the weather

Whatever too much is for you, if you drink too much you won't feel good.

I have to agree with this.

I can barely function as a human being and avoid interacting with others at all costs when I have a hangover here. When I was back in England last year I was surprised at how relatively close I was to an ordinary member of society even after a particularly heavy night on the European beers.

I do think the overnight dehydration factor plays a big part in hot countries. Water and electrolyte loss contribute a lot to a hangover.

The way the nanny brigade works here I wouldn't be surprised if something was put in as a deterrent. We either need to get a hold of the Thai Gov Book of Secrets, or someone in the UK needs to do a test with the export Thai beer available there. Pete :cheers:

In the name of research I had 5-6 tins of Leo last night and this morning feel like a bag of shite.

You definitely do not get the same reaction from 3 pints of Spitfire, Tribute, Strongbow or even Stella.

Thai lager is pollution - but I will continue my research today!

I can't touch Thai lager, it gives me severe stomach cramps after about 50% of a small bottle. The only pain from 4 pints of Guinness is in my wallet.

Even in China a communist controlled dictatorship, the craft brewery movement has caught fire and there are many brewpubs making/selling carefully sourced ingredients and with a guarantee of purity similar to Germany.

I often have a dodgy stomach after eating the same food as the wife and she's always fine, always been the same.
But Chang and Leo don't give me any stomach problem, might increase the hangover slightly I agree.

But it's what I can afford to drink on a daily basis; the one/two bottles of Fullers, Youngs, etc. I buy on a shopping trip are saved up for occasional use in front of the TV (rugby, F1, etc.) :)

I don't get a hangover with beer brewed in the UK much either. I wonder if this has anything to do with it, apparently there is a 0.5% leeway allowed on alcohol content labeling and manufacturers are using this to brew weaker beer to lower tax liability:

The six-pack of Singha remains untouched. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it. It’s going to need to wait until Saturday, however, before I can have a good run at it. :shock:
