Changwon Express, Asoke's specialty Thai craft beer bar and Korean-Mexican fusion restaurant, is launching its very own beer named after the neighborhood.

The bar's friendly Korean owner, Ted Ahn, takes inspiration from his space's bright yellow color scheme for the packaging of Changwon Express Asoke Pale Ale, along with a picture of the BTS train and the Asoke skyline.

Ahn has the beer brewed in Korea before legally importing it to Bangkok. Unlike other Thai craft beers, it also comes in a can rather than a bottle.

Asoke Pale Ale is technically an American Pale Ale but with extra hops and a more fruity and tropical aroma, specially designed to be more refreshing than a regular American Pale Ale—the perfect reward, says Ahn, for a long journey stuck in Bangkok traffic.

Changwon Express will hold an official launch party for the beer on Mar 23. You can also pre-order it online at for deliveries by Mar 27.

Following the launch, it will be available at Wishbeer, Dogstep, Upon Taphouse (Ubon Ratchatani), Namton's House Bar (Chiang Mai), The Six Taps (Chonburi), Double Shot Kon Kaen (Kon Kaen) and EAT Khao Yai (Khao Yai).

While Bangkok's chaotic roads and hot weather can be off-putting, there are actually plenty of reasons to get back on your bike.

All the highlights from the exhibition which reinvented viewing art in Bangkok.
