Is it 6 or 12 bottles you can bring?

Stop drinking and read through the thread slowly UrTtongue.png

One said 6. One said 12. One said 1 liter. I've done 12 in Chong Mek. Just wondering what the law is.

Sorry I should have mentioned the 12 small bottles was for 2 people.

They told me 6 per person, you know the story over here everything changes by the day and location. This was at Savannakhet.

After checking it appears the official deal is One litre of wine or spirits it may be they cut some slack for beer.

From what I understood / heard:

1 liter wine / spirit OR 6 pack of beer.

Isan farang: any luck speaking with somebody at makro yesterday?

When I went yesterday for my supply of dark. I was informed they have never stocked gold and was unsure if and when it would be on the shelf.

At present they only stock the dark and standard that comes in 24 per box.

I am not done looking yet, I will now try Tops and then another outlet called The bottle shop

As said 1 liter of ANY alcohol. If beer that would be only 3 cans or bottles of 330 ml.

....Just came back from 2 nights in Thakhek, Laos, and it appears that the large 640ml bottles of BeerLao Gold are no longer available.

640ml Bottles of Beer Lao Gold are no longer produced. They stopped producing 640ml as nobody was buying (or not many) . Beer Lao has improved the taste of the Gold but is now only sold in 330ml bottles. A few Farang seem to buy the Gold but Lao people still prefer the standard. It's a price issue! The Beer Lao Girls Dressed in their Gold outfits look great too!

Beer Lao Gold is an "American style" pilsner. Like most American pilsners, it tastes like cat piss.

I will be heading to Makro on Monday to pull a few boxes of the dark if there is some left, I will be asking if they have or can obtain the gold.

If its available in Ubon then Tops at Central Mall will be the likely supplier.They also have a nice selection of large bottles of premium German beer.

Supplies have been good lately in the Ubon Makro and even Makro Warin (on the Kantharalak Rd just south of the Ring Road) has been seen stocking it in recent months. My guess is a lot of it is going to expats or their bars. Beer Lao dark seems to be better stocked than Beer Lao regular these days and is available in all the Ubon falang bars most of the time .. at a price. Havn't seen Beer Lao Gold on sale anywhere in cases - think I've seen it by the bottle at TOPS (Central Plaza) but not 100% sure, but they will normally have regular and dark by the bottle in the unlikely event you can't source bulk at either of the Makros.

The smell of cat piss is terrible, you are a brave man to have tasted it to perform the mentioned test.

That's cheap. By the case in Makro it works out at 64 baht a bottle!
