If we were to ask you for your favorite spot to grab a cold pint of beer or a glass of creative cocktail, you’d probably have different answers for those two things. But what if we tell you to think of a place that specializes in creating “Beertails” from a selection of the finest craft beers and ingredients? Quite hard isn’t it?
Luckily for us, there’s one place right in the middle of the city. Just hop on the BTS Skytrain and get down at On Nut or Bang Chak station and walk for about 600 meters (approx. 5 minutes) towards Soi Sukhumvit 89. Inside the alley, you’ll find Bangkok’s latest addition to its ever-growing list of craft beer bars called “Where Is My Beer?”. Here, you’ll find a variety of creative beertails, a fine selection of craft beers, and Thai-German fusion food you just can’t resist.
Bangkok is one of the busiest cities in the world, so finding a nice and quiet spot with a country-side vibe can be quite a tall order in a concrete jungle like this. This two-story home turned craft beer bar, however, can make you feel like having a cold one right outside the balcony of your holiday home up in the mountains. The cozy white-brown color tone and a quiet residential setting surrounded by trees truly set this house bar in a class of its own.
The interior design perfectly portrays rustic concept and the country-side vibe as the owners intended. The right-hand corner offers a close-to-nature feel with greeneries and paintings of a variety of leaves on the white wall. The other corner is decorated as a German pub with bare concrete mixed with red-orange bricks that were made by the owners themselves. The bar and furniture are all made from wood, complementing the rustic character of the bar. The 2nd floor is also a made into homestay to accommodate all the tourists in the area.
This place is Bangkok's first beer cocktail bar, and it also produces its own Thai-German craft beers under the name Ladybräu. That is why its signature menu mainly consists of creative beertails created using the Ladybräu beers as a base. If you're not into cocktails, the Lager and Hefeweizen on tap will give you pure craft beer taste you might be after. Other than beer, the bar also offers a selection of local and international craft beer brands for you to try out all night long.
We tried the Don’t tell your Mum (280 THB), a blend of wheat beer, scotch whiskey, passion fruit, and basil leaves that gives off a sour-bitter taste and a sweet aroma, and we also went for the sweet and sour Berlin White Rosé (200 THB) that was made from wheat beer, syrup, and raspberry. Both of these drinks are perfectly light and are perfect for those who don't like fancy bitter after-taste of beers.
The food here is mainly Thai-German fusion made from home-style recipes that go extremely well with all the beers. Most of the food is perfect for sharing with your friends throughout the night. Be sure to try the German Sausage with Thai Sause (200 THB), a selection of German sausages served with a special recipe sauce made from tomatoes, chilli powder, and Thai herbs, and the Beer Fried Chicken Wings (200 THB), chicken wings marinated in beer and mustard for over 24 hours before being deep-fried until golden and crispy. There's also the Yum-Tuna Gyoza (150 THB) that comes with a balsamic-mustard dip, the German Cold Cut (200 THB) that includes smoked ham, dry-aged ham, salami, pickles, and bread, and the Homemade French Fries (150 THB) served with a special homemade dipping sauce.
Each day offers a different promotion on food and drinks, so you can be sure that there'll be a great deal waiting for you every day. For example, Wednesday is "Ladies Night" where all women (including transgenders) get 50 THB off any Beertails. Even Saturday offers a set menu where you can get a plate of German sausage and a glass of beer for only 250 THB.
It's time to step away from your work desk and escape the hectic city life for a moment. Pop over to Where Is My Beer? to relax your mind with a nice cold glass of beertail and recharge your body with a dish of Thai-German fusion food. You might have a chance to meet the owners who will definitely make you feel at home. Not a bad option for an after-work excursion.
