Not averse to Singha when out but I’m getting some to take home and have plenty of styles to choose from. Never tried anything but IPA or pale lager, both of which seem to work. Think I’m out of IPA. Might have a pale lager lurking somewhere. What do you think would hit the spot?

I might have one of those.












Nevermind. All out.

Reporting back. Tried out some home-brewed lambic-style sour and I think that worked very well. The higher carbonation picked the heavier curry off of the tongue while the snappy acidity complemented the overall flavors and the lack of bitterness didn’t aggravate the spice levels.

Cracked a bottle of Sam Smiths Pure Brewed Lager as well and while it worked, a few sips were enough as it was pretty oxidized. Would love to have this beer fresh though, as I already like where its going compared to their ales.

I really like Snake Dog IPA by Flying Dog for all kinds of chinese, thai and indian foods. When in doubt serve Heineken. =)

Why not go for the beer of Thailand, Singha? Far better choice than Heineken.....millions of Thai’s can’t be wrong

Singha! Joking that stuff is pish.
A solid high(ish) IBU IPA or a Belgian Tripel would go well

Or Orval!!!
