A small beer bar serving craft beers produced by Golden Coins microbrewery
After ardous attempts to make their brand legit in Thailand, Golden Coins take things a step further by bringing their kegs to a taproom concept with an eponymous named bar.
It was a long journey for founder Pieak Pipattanaphon, who started the brand in 2011, pioneering the local craft beer industry and becoming one of the first-talked about Thai craft beers. In 2015, he opend Let The Boy Die in the Chinatown, the first bar in Bangkok to serve only Thai craft beer on tap. The future of Thai craft beer still remains uncertain, with many Thai brewers, including Golden Coins, needing to partner up with local breweries in neighboring countries to produce batches of beer before importing them back to Thailand just to make the entire process more legal.
Replacing the old spot of Butterscotch ice cream shop at Ekkamai Shopping Mall, Golden Coins Taproom features six taps dedicated to the brand's different beer styles (in the future you can expect more brews on rotation). Golden Coins is known for their IPA and Pale Ale beers, and beer lovers would do themselves a favor by trying the Wish Do, an American-style Pale Ale brew. The Happy Stout is another blockbuster. Containing five percent stout, this style is easy to drink and smells just like cookies and cream — it may actually be a little too sweet if you're more into bitter IPAs. (Beers start from B180/glass.)
The food menu has more variety than in Let The Boy Die, combining a range of beer chow from all over the world. You can find western comfort fare like Golden Coins Beef Burger (B250) served in charcoal bun, fish n' chips (B220). pork knuckles with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut (B390) or Thai dishes like yum mama (spicy salad with instant noodles, B150) and mixed Thai sausages (B180).
