    Best Beer LEO Distributors/Factories

    I've noticed that certain bottles of LEO beer taste a bit off, almost Chang-like. Someone pointed out the label on the side with the date of manufacture and the factory number. The date of manufacture tends to be remarkably recent, sometimes as few as three days previously (I'm up in Issan as well). The factory number is between 1 and 6, and is next to the date. It seems factories 1-3 tend to be the best (in particular, #1 seems the best out of all), and 4-6 are a bit lower grade. I think the #6 are the worst. Has anyone noticed this correlation? The #1 LEO's are quite tasty and produce no hangover, though I do drink in moderation...

    Interesting. I drink Leo and I've had some rank, really rank, bottles. I put it down to heat exposure (warming, cooling and so on) but you may be onto something there.

    ---Update---

    Just checked this one - it's a #2. Nice!

    News to me . . I'll do some "research" as well

    I am/was seeing some bottles here that appear to have also had their troubles with the flooding . . looks like they may have been underwater and taken to the car wash for a clean up? They have probably all moved through the inventory by now however.

    If nothing else, it'll make for one of those apocryphal tales to go alongside naked women on the hindquarters of a camel, that sort of thing.

    Years ago, I had a thing about Zippo lighters. I vaguely recall there was a certain cachet regarding which Roman numeral was stamped into it (when you unsleeved it); the higher the better. My 'IV' beats your 'III', that sort of mullarkey.

    Another Thai TEFLer urban myth. Maybe factories 4-6 put in more formaldehyde.

    I would ask my mate Dave, but he's currently at the airport searching through millions of TM6 cards, trying to find the the copy of the one he lost...

    Maybe correct me on this, but I think the numbers 1-6 do correspond to place of manufacture - Beer LAO has a similar imprint, but apparently only has 3 production facilities, as the numbers are 1-3. For Beer LEO #1 is invariably delicious - want to test my hypothesis?

    yes. please stock my refrigerator with enough Bia Lao for a statistically interesting sample. if it doesn't all fit the cases of beer can be put in the living room, just leave a path to walk through. all in the name of science of course.
    Imodium can't stop me.

    I'm going to tell two people about this over the next three days. I will note their names. I shall tell them 'in confidence'.

    I guarantee that another party, previously unknown, will tell me about it in confidence within a week.

    I like to do a couple of dummy runs like that before dropping some real paranoia on folk.
