The January arrival of Mikkeller in Bangkok heralded a new era for the city’s craft beer revolution. Located in a residential area just a stone’s throw from Soi Ekamai, this secretive spot is the fourth home of Denmark’s most coveted microbrewery.
The bar is set in the downstairs of a Corbusier-style house, and is a generous-sized cube of light wood and glass with plenty of tables and high seating. Outdoors there are a smattering of tables and an inviting patch of grass dotted with huge leather beanbags.
With a whopping 30 taps of draft beer, the Tiger Baby, brewed with mango, is perhaps the most suited to a sunny Thai evening on the lawn. With an ever-changing blackboard of brews, asking and testing the beers are all part of the fun. Staff know their stuff and their recommendations are spot on.
Last time we went, co-owner Jakob Rasmussen was firing up a barbecue on the lawn next to a pop-up bar shaking beer cocktails. Yes please.
