My First Craft Beer Experience | Mikkeller Bangkok, Thailand

Going into the house

Sometimes you get bored with getting drunk by drinking bottles of cheap Chang beer, and just want to chill out. It was one of those nights when some of my friends and I went to this craft beer bar, Mikkeller Bangkok. After having delicious street burger at Sukhumvit Soi 39, we decided to take a good walk to the place. Eventually we came around quiet neighborhood, and voila! A cool Scandinavian-looking house was standing there.

Bar counter and a menu board

Inside the house, there were a lot of people enjoying their time respectively, chatting and laughing with glasses on their hands. There was a counter in the middle, and a big black board filled with different kinds of craft beer. I was overwhelmed by the variety they got: there were 30 of them!

Different kinds of beer

I didn’t have no idea where to start, so one of the staff helped me with picking one. He asked me if I like bitter, sweet, or fruity, and I picked fruity. Then he handed me a glass and suggested to try. After taking sips of different beer, I decided to go for the one that’s no-so-strong mild-fruity. (Not sure how to describe the taste…)

What we chose

We all picked one and settled by the table. Each one had quite different taste, and that was really interesting, as for the first-time craft beer drinker. With high percentage of the alcohol,  I got utterly drunk at the end. This time I could only taste a couple of different ones, but it would be fun to discover the one which perfectly suits the mood of the day.

  1. The world of craft beer is so extensive and it’s been interesting to see it start to develop here in Thailand. Mikkeller was the first bar/pub I went to in Bangkok and the setting alone was worth it. Keep trying new beers. It’ll push your pallet to new limits the same as food.

  2. Funny they serve beer in wine glasses. Around here it is “Octoberfest” time of year so a lot of breweries have tapped their “Octoberfest” I am always on the look out for one similar to one I had years ago. It tasted like a spiced gum drop and it was delicious!

  3. Hi there, thanks for stopping by and following my blog 🙂
    My other half brews craft beer but I’m not a fan, so he is on a mission to convert me! I like sours and lambics though – the Mikeller blueberry sounds nice, I’ve been to one of their bars here in the UK. Most people hate sours though – I’m in the minority when it comes to liking what is essentially ‘mouldy’ beer!
