The Beer Cap
Thonglor's den of craft beer at The Commons community mall.
The original Beer Cap took over Cosmic Cafe’s spot on RCA, added craft beer to the live music, and then closed way, way too quickly.
But now it's reopened in Thonglor—familiar territory for owner Chris Foo, the Bangkok beer mogul who's also behind Seen Space's Brew Beer & Ciders. Joining The Commons community mall, mark 2 of the bar has the same signature long bar covered with beer caps, but the brew selection is quite different.
Unlike Brew's exhaustive range, The Beer Cap focuses on more niche craft beers, both on tap and by the bottle. When we last visited, there were six beers on tap: BrewDog Punk IPA (B160/260 per pint/half-pint), Holgate (B220), Chainbreaker White IPA (B240), Epic Escape IPA (B220), Epic Mid Mountain mid ale (B220) and Limburgse Witte (B140/240). Bottles are categorized by style, not country of origin like at Brew, with brands like Hitachino, La Trappe, Rogue and Chimney.
