    Archa is pretty nice but I do prefer red horse
    Too right, Red Horse's a nice strong kick ass beer, with an alcohol volume of 6.9%, similar to Chang Beer's 6.4%.

    Dex this is from the inside. Archa got 24 of 31 first place votes. This beers were not ranked in the top three. You are right it is a big deal, and I dont have a clue how it happened. But I do think Chang deserves the medal they got.

    Sure is and the word is that ThaiBev is selling Archa well below cost, to muscle Leo out of market share in the budget sector.

    Aussie also won a big one last year,

    Australia wins 'World Cup' of beer

    July 7, 2006 -

    A World Cup-style competition to find the best beer has named an Australian made sparkling ale as the winner.

    The competition, run by the UK publication Off Licence News, pitted beers from 32 countries that contested soccer's World Cup against each other.

    The drinks were placed in one of eight groups of four, to correspond with the World Cup, with the two top scoring beverages moving to the second round and knock out tastings.
    Marks were awarded for taste, appearance, balance and drinkability, with a sparkling ale produced by South Australian brewer Coopers named the eventual winner.

    Coopers marketing director and chairman Glenn Cooper said despite Australia's controversial elimination from the World Cup, he took comfort in the knowledge Australia had snared "the more important World Cup".

    Re: Archa Beer Wins Gold in Oz

    anything that includes ANY Thai beer in the competition is like the
    SPECIAL OLYMPICS for beers

    fit for fucking meths, thats why its cheap

    as for a competition that doesen't include the traditional brewing powerhouses
    well

    its like the world series

    No Czech pilsener in that list. I'm no expert but that's got to be one of the best beers I've ever sampled (can't remember the name of it unfortunately).

    Tis' true mate, a new beer to hit the Thai market,



    Singha plunges into cheap-beer market

    Singha Corp expects its new Isaan beer to be a hit with medium-to-low-income drinkers, especially in the countryside.


    Published on November 10, 2007




    The company says it will fill a gap not fully reached by its Singha and Leo brands.

    The brewer and beverage producer said the new, 4.7-per-cent-alcohol beer could capture a 3-per-cent slice of the Bt100-billion-a-year market.

    Company marketing manager Chatchai Viratyosin said yesterday Singha was a favourite in Bangkok and other cities, while Leo was drunk by lower-income consumers in cities and in rural towns.

    He said the new beer would entrench the company among all low-income drinkers, including those at the grass roots.
    It goes on sale tomorrow and will cost Bt100 for three bottles. This is still more than its main competitor, Archa, from Thai Beverage. Archa has been selling for three years and costs Bt100 for five bottles. It is heavily promoted.
