In my continuing homage to Beerlao, I must inform you of the new brew. They’ve gone dark! Beerlao lovers (and I know many of you) will understand what a revelation this is. It’s a light sort of dark, but damned good for a Southeast Asian beer. (Plus it’s still really cheap at about 70 cents a bottle).
According the the Vientiane Times, the beer went on sale in October (OK, so it’s not brand new, but it’s definitely new by Lao-time standards), along with Beerlao light. Forget the light! Go for the brown.
