The newfound enthusiasm for craft brewing has spread across the world to Bangkok – now there’s more than a few places that have the credentials to make Bangkok’s bustling nightlife an unlikely hotspot for craft beer.

With the local craft beer scene on the rise, smaller breweries have sprung up across the city - with each developing their own unique twist to the classic formulas. So here are a few of the best bars in Bangkok that are worth a visit if you’re craving a good beer in Bangkok:

1. Changwon Express

A tiny place located in the heart of Bangkok, Changwon Express offers a truly unique craft beer experience. The ever-changing menu of beers might not be huge, but you can be sure that you’ll find something new with each visit. The craft beers are carefully sourced and the owner offers both Thai and Korean craft beers on tap. 
There’s also a great menu of Mexican-Asian fusion beer foods such as the always popular kimchi taco and bibimbap. 
While it’s on the pricier side (with brews costing upwards of B240), Changwon Express’s location (and craft beer credentials) make it a must-visit for any enthusiasts passing through Bangkok.

2. Hair of the Dog

Based around a hospital theme, the Hair of the Dog is designed with authentic hospital lighting and hospital beds that serve as tables.

3. Taproom

4. Wishbeer

Wishbeer Home Bar offers one of the largest selections of beer in Bangkok and, even better, also operates an online store should you wish to enjoy your craft beer at home. 
With 15 beers on tap and hundreds upon hundreds of bottled beers to taste, you’ll never run out of new things to try. The bar itself is situated in a converted warehouse space, which makes it a seriously cool (and atmospheric) venue to sample all things craft beer.
