Getting Beerlao in Singapore
One of my favorite beers in South-East Asia is definitely Beerlao, produced by the Lao Brewery Company (by now a 50-50 joint-venture between the Lao government and Carlsberg).
Despite expanding, it is still fairly difficult to find outside of Laos, Cambodia or Thailand. In Singapore I’ve seen it popping up at some trendy bars, priced in the same range as some European imported beers. While I would tend to say it is worth the money, I wanted to find a place to buy it in bulk instead of individual bottles.
Turns out there is indeed a store in Toa Payoh that sells the bottles. And the price is very reasonable too: S$4.50 for a 640mL bottle or S$2.60 for a 330mL bottle – can’t beat a Beerlao for the price of a Tiger.
If you’re interested, venture out to Euro Link Wines & Spirits, Blk85A, Lorong 4, Toa Payoh #01-324, Singapore 311085. Tel: +65 6255 7271. They are open Mon-Sat.
