Yessir - that is my very own case of Beer Lao purchased right here in Singapore!
|Beer Lao by the case, now available in Singapore.|
Generally I'm of the opinion that most beers taste pretty much the same, but I have a soft spot for Beer Lao. Maybe because it tastes like European beer, or maybe it's because I had an amazing time celebrating Pee Mai (Lao New Year) in Vientiane, a celebration in which Beer Lao plays a major part. Who knows.
Anyway, we'd occasionally see Beer Lao for sale at the Golden Mile Complex, AKA Singapore's "Little Thailand", but it was never a reliable source. So smarty-pants Peter decided to actually call the phone number on the little "Imported by" sticker on the bottle to see if they'd sell it directly to us, and lo and behold they said they would! No minimum purchase, either!
So we went down to Toa Payoh last weekend to pick it up, and the store sells all kinds of imported liquors, beers, and wines. Prices were excellent (for Singapore) and the Beer Lao cost a bargain $4.50 SGD per big bottle. Goodbye Tiger Beer!
I'll share the secret of where you can buy it, just promise you'll leave some for us!
