  • The craft beer bro who was recently arrested opens his own beer bar tomorrow

Taopiphop "Tao" Limjittrakorn made headlines on Jan 21 when he was arrested for brewing craft beer at his own home under rarely used Thai law that only permits state-registered breweries and brewpubs.

After spending the night in jail and handing over a fine of B5,400, Tao hasn't been deterred from his craft beer mission, revealing he will open his very own craft beer bar in Nonthaburi tomorrow (Feb 17). 

Called Taopiphop Bar Project, the space will hold its grand opening bash on Feb 20, when you can try out his taproom with five rotating taps. He won't tell us exactly what they'll be pouring on the opening night, but expect to enjoy legal craft beer priced at around B170-300 per glass.

There's also more to the space than just a bar. Slowbar Coffee will serve coffee made only with French press, Aeropress and slow drip, while the Sensory Lab X Free Space plans to bring in professionals in the craft beer scene to give lectures and strengthen the community.

It seems people are excited. As of today, the post about the opening on Facebook has been shared over 300 times. 

190 Rattanathibet Rd., Bangkrasor, Nonthaburi, 089-155-0702. Open daily 5pm-midnight
