Whenever you talk with people about going to Koh Kret, the first stop (and last) stop on your list is always Chitbeer. Now, craft beer lovers can have Chithole just over the river north of Thonburi by Krung Thon Bridge.

The brainchild of Wichit “Chit” Saiklao, Chitbeer has been a drinking staple for more than a decade, and this new spot keeps with its Chaophraya river roots. Unlike the cramped but friendly over-river spot in Koh Kret, this new venue boasts a lot more space. 

Found next to the Royal River Hotel (which has parking), the spot opened officially on Jan 13 and can be accessed through the lobby. They’ve got six beers on tap, including Wizard Pilsner, Chitbeer Floral Paradise, and Devanom Tropical.
