"Songkran" (Thai New Year's week ) is here April 11-17!

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!

Beer Lao Dark now available!



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..."
