Just out of curiosity, how bored were you when you tried that?

It was all just in the fridge looking at me so I felt an impulse!

7-ELEVEN TO SELL CANS OF THAI CRAFT BEER
For the first time, the shelves of the realm’s top convenience stores will be stocked with cans of Thai craft beer.

Starting Thursday, Bannok Beer will be sold at 7-Eleven stores in Bangkok and a number of other provinces. It’s billed as the convenience chain’s first Thai craft beer for sale.

Beers will sell in two low-alcohol content varieties: a wheat beer called Kiss Me Deadly and IPA Honey Bomb. Each is 4 percent alcohol by volume and costs 99 baht.

It wasn’t clear which 7-Eleven branches would be selling the beer. The admin of Bannok Beer’s Facebook page encouraged customers to ask 7-Eleven staff about the beer to speed its arrival onto shelves.

Bannok Beer was founded by Panitan Tongsiri, a Sakon Nakhon native who also founded Thai craft beer brands Stone Head and Lamzing.

The new beer offering comes a few months after 7-Eleven stores aborted an October roll-out of beer taps following complaints by anti-alcohol campaigners.

Hopefully, people will post here when they've tracked it down...

OK, it's approx. double the price of a can of Singha - I'll take those odds!

If it's brewed in Cambodia, at a brewery that also brews Cambodian craft beer, is it really Thai craft beer? And who cares anyway? I also saw on their FB page that they eventually hope to brew and sell enough to get the price down to around 70 baht. I hope they do, if the beer's any good.

Interesting if long-winded article about the term 'craft beer'. I've always disliked the Americanism, and much prefer 'independent brewer'.

If anything should ever be called craft beer, it's probably the output of brewpub guys like the one in this article, not a Thai company opening several 'craft' labels:

Well Cambodia's at least a lot closer than Australia, where a lot of the other "Thai" craft beers are brewed!

Both Kiss Me Deadly and IPA Honey Bomb have appeared in my local 7-11 (on the P/kasem northbound at Cha Am Soi 54 - Nong Karng).

Having decided not to go down the route of a spiced Christmas beer I’ve scratched the itch of a fruit brew and just made a Cherry Dubbel wort that’s now in the primary fermenter. It’s for an event in June so not something I intend to drink much of myself but I’m toying with an almond, vanilla or oak chip addition in secondary after a couple of weeks - any experience of such things here?

I bought one of each last time I was in the area. (This was at the 7Eleven located where Soi Bo Khem intersects with Petchakasem in Cha Am.) I only drank the Kiss Me Deadly. I rated it 2.5/5 on Untappd. I thought it was bland. The IPA Honey Bomb is still in the condo fridge awaiting my next visit. Or, not.

Edit: I should add that when I gave my wife a sip she said, "Why do they call this beer? It tastes like water." Maybe 2.5 was being generous.

I've just seen this on one of the many archive sites dated about the same time as I started drinking, and thought those were the days :D :

Just looked it up. Feb 1971 was when Decimal currency was introduced.
