Beer Review: Singha, The Original Thai Beer

You rarely get discounts on beer and when you get, you don’t loose any opportunity to stack it and that’s what happened with me over a weekend. 1+1 free on Singha and there you go, my beer for the week.

A little bit about the brand itself as its quite an interesting story, excerpts take from the website.

Boon Rawd Brewery became the official purveyor to the Royal Court of Thailand with the gracious appointment on 25 October 1939, and granted the use of the Kingdom’s Garuda as well as the words “By Royal Permission.”  The granting of the Garuda, the country’s and Royalty’s official emblem, is done rarely, usually given to institutions and companies that have been in service to the Royal Court for some time, upholding its quality of products and services for the Kingdom’s population, is of good standing financially, and without a tarnished name, being an organization that can positively represent the Kingdom worldwide. It is considered possibly the highest honour a company or organisation to receive, which could also be taken away if the good standing slides below par. Thus, this grant also signifies the trustworthiness of the company or organisation operation in the Kingdom of Thailand.

Singha, a Thai mythical creature in the form of a Lion has been a part of Thai history and nation for as long as anyone can remember. In actuality, it is an animal regarded as King of the Jungle both in Thailand and many countries and cultures worldwide. Figuratively, it is the symbol of power, strength, courage, leadership, dignity, loyalty, perseverance and endurance.
