In Thailand, the Thai New Year is marked by the week-long water festival known as "Songkran". The splashing or dousing of anyone and everyone with water stems from the ancient Thai belief that the purity of water washes away evil & misfortune, replacing it with good luck, prosperity and happiness. Needless to say, this is a much anticipated ritual during Thailand's hottest month!

Whilst looking for a dark beer to fill the void, we found the perfect fit that's a bit closer to home than Guinness! Rabieng introduces Beer Lao Dark.
Brewed by our "next door" neighbors in Laos w/ hand-picked indigenous rice varieties, spring water originating from the Himalayan foothills, Hallertau hops, German Yeast and French malted barley
"The soft, roasted malt flavors are well balanced with a pleasant bitter finish, not complex, but damn good with spicy foods..."
