7-Eleven To Sell Cans Of Thai Craft Beer

For the first time, the shelves of the realm’s top convenience stores will be stocked with cans of Thai craft beer.

Starting Thursday, Bannok Beer will be sold at 7-Eleven stores in Bangkok and a number of other provinces. It’s billed as the convenience chain’s first Thai craft beer for sale.

Beers will sell in two low-alcohol content varieties: a wheat beer called Kiss Me Deadly and IPA Honey Bomb. Each is 4 percent alcohol by volume and costs 99 baht.

It wasn’t clear which 7-Eleven branches would be selling the beer. The admin of Bannok Beer’s Facebook page encouraged customers to ask 7-Eleven staff about the beer to speed its arrival onto shelves.

Bannok Beer was founded by Panitan Tongsiri, a Sakon Nakhon native who also founded Thai craft beer brands Stone Head and Lamzing.

The new beer offering comes a few months after 7-Eleven stores aborted an October roll-out of beer taps following complaints by anti-alcohol campaigners.
