Well worth a visit if in Penang. Choice is ok with one or two ticks. By far the cheapest place for a beer in Penang. Very popular with tourists and locals alike

Very different! A dirty shop with dirty seats available outside in the evening and now three beer fridges. Most of the beer isnít really very good but still itís the cheapest place to grab some ticks, and the most unique beers youíll find in Georgetown at the time of writing without venturing out to Crab & Lobster.

Visited here in Nov 2015. This is a glorified off licence that puts plastic chairs out at night for folks to sit on. Beer selection is rather good for Malaysia (though that is not saying much) as are prices, hence was super busy on both nights that we visited. Most of the better beers were from Belgium or Australia.

OK, so by no means is this actually a bar. Look out for the íAntarabasca Enterprisesí sign above the shop front. Itís basically a small, local Chinese run shop with two fridges inside - one for beer and mixed spirits and another for soft drinks. Doesnít sound like much but there is actually a írangeí of different beers here including the regular swill, but also the Danish Royal Stout, Hoegaarden and a mix of different strong lagers (all available in cans and bottles), which may result in a few ticks if thatís what youíre looking for. A no frills drinking establishment that during the day is pretty lowkey, but once evening rolls around tables and chairs magically appear outside along the alley and raucous drinking begins. It really is locals only who come here. A minute or two walk from Love Lane so itís convenient to pick up a few beers if staying in the area. Itís good to know this place exists as thereís not really any other options (for dirt cheap beer), and itís nice to try something else other than Tiger, although the shop does also appear to stock a never ending supply of that as well.
