Beer joint Changwon Express branches out with a beach club-themed spin-off
Changwon Express first opened its doors in 2015 as a small beer den next to Petchburi MRT station, offering rotating craft selections on tap, and Mexican-meets-Korean bar chow created by its Korean-born owner Ted Ahn. Two years and multiple joint ventures later, this little joint is still proving that its always bringing it's A game. Not to mention that the bar also brews its own legally crafted beer: Asoke Pale Ale and Chao Phraya Stout.
Right before the new year, Ahn is branching out with yet another venture at urban surfing destination, Flow House, replacing the Hawaiian-themed bar on the second floor. The new Changwon Express at Flow House has a list of 30 craft beers, and is an ideal spot for the surf-and-sip crew.
Of the 30 selections on taps, 20 are reserved for Thai craft beers and 10 pour out imported brews. Local selections include Sandport, Happy New Beer and Stonehead, as well as Ahn’s own brews, while brands like Brewdog, Ballast Point, Evil Twins and Little Creatures—recently introduced in the city—make up the imported range.
Unfortunately, you won’t get to enjoy Ahn’s mouthwatering kimchi tacos here. Flow House’s main kitchen provides the chow at this Changwon Express branch, including a bevy of Thai dishes and tasty munchies—you can never go wrong pairing chicken wings (B180), deep-fried calamari (B180) and Margherita pizza with a glass of beer. Ahn, however, is currently working on a new food menu.
Flow House and Changwon Express also team up once a month for a special Beer ‘n’ Surf event, where surfers get one complimentary glass of beer for a one-hour surfing session. The bigger space also means more beer-related events than in the first branch. Visit the Changwon Express Facebook page for more information.
