    That'll cost you a few bob Wolfy. You could do with a decent bet coming up trumps to pay for it - I know just the bloke.

    I was in Tescos on Sunday and noticed they have reduced Singha to £2 a bottle.

    Haven't seen Beer Lao in B&M for a while, but good value prices for the Greene King brewery range of beers, but better still, they have six stubbies of VB for about £3.50, which is amazing value, Tescos charge twice the price!

    Singha back to normal price £2.25 for a big bottle in my local ASDA although they also now do a four pack of small bottles in a cardboard carry out pack.

    Colin, my was because although they did charge higher, I still think £2 a bottle way too much! but its the same for all these so called premium lagers now, even Tiger brewed in the UK! Does anyone actually buy them? The other thing I noticed was bottled ale had had by and large been reduced to £1.50 a bottle, wonder why?

    I have to say that I'm not quite sure why a lot of you chaps in the UK seem to have a need for a 'fix' of Thai beer? Is it the UK version of the second stage of 'The 5 Ages of Farang'?

    Followed by a ''HONEYMOON'' period where everything Thai related is viewed through rose colored glasses and the person loves everything Thai related.
    Each to their own of course, but I'd guess that the majority of consumers of Thai beer in the UK (excluding Thais), are those who have strong connections with the country (either frequent visits or a Thai partner). Is it a 'comfort' thing - a way of keeping in contact with the promised land, or is the beer better?

    If you were married to a lassie from Scotland or took your annual holiday there, would you be seeking out the best supermarket deals on Tennents or McEwans?

    Personally every time I go back to the UK, I don't touch a pint of lager. It's flat, warm beer or cider for me. When I return to Thailand, it's the local lager because it's a lot cheaper and is served as cold as they can get it. 'Proper' beer is not really an option as it's not widely available, doesn't taste the same when chilled and is too expensive. If I lived in the UK, and I wanted a decent premium lager for a change, I think I'd be looking at Belgian or German beer before opting for Singha.

    As I said, it's all down to personal choice.
    Phil.

    I agree with your comments Phil. I don't drink lager here at all when out and about. I do sometimes partake in a lager at home and that would usually be a Heineken, brewed in Holland and the only Heineken now available in the UK not like it used to be when brewed here under licence and nothing like the real stuff.

    I also like a Becks, only ever brewed in Germany adhering to the Rheinheitsgebot.

    The French stuff Kronenbourg 1664 and the Belgian Stella Artois are both brewed here and are therefore crap. Even the indian lagers Cobra and Kingfisher are brewed here now, and as Caller says Tiger's brewed in Edinburgh with all the other crap Scotch beers.

    Well I buy Singha but as the shelf is usually nearly empty so must others but there is a large amount of Thais and UK expats visiting the UK plus current LOS frequent fliers in this small town so maybe that explains it. Additionally if it did not sell the likes of ASDA & Tesco would not stock it

    PS :- I'm rather partial to Stella as well
