I saw this great sign in Thailand, on how to order beer in Thai. What it didn’t mention was that ‘beer’ is pronounced ‘bee-aw’ like saying ‘beer’ with an Australian accent.
Thai beers are primarily lagers, based on the German laws of brewing. The main ones are: Chang, Leo and Singha. From our tasting notes: ‘Chang has a slightly sour but nice middle and a good finish, whereas Singha is an all up-front, pure German-style brew‘.
An ice-cold one of any one of these will knock back the heat of the ubiquitous chiles found in almost every Thai dish!
