If you know your Bangkok craft beer, you know Chitbeer—or maybe you just know them for their over the river spot at Chit Hole. Either way, fans no longer have to travel to Koh Kret or across the Chaophraya for a sip of their beers because they’ve opened up a new spot in Sukhumvit Soi 71. 
The new space just off the main road on Pridi Banomyong 14 (just a 15 minute walk from the Phra Khanong BTS) opened last week and features two indoor levels. Inside, complete with a large moon for a feature piece, drinkers will find the usual Chitbeer staples and a large fridge full of labels. 
Chitbeer is a local legend on the brewing scene, a pioneer on for more than a decade pushing Thai craft brewing forward before it was cool—or safe for that matter, considering Thailand’s odd alcohol laws. Wichit “Chit” Saiklao was a military colonel turned Thai craft beer trailblazer who opened the country’s first legal Thai craft beer brewery at Mitr Craft, the Chit Beer Brewing Academy in 2013, and the Koh Kret craft beer space Chitbeer. 
Last year, the first Bangkok Chit Hole was opened closer to downtown with the Chit Hole Bar at Royal River Hotel, and their new spot on Ekkamai drew huge crowds for the opening weekend. 
208-2, Soi Mi Suwan 3, Pridi Banomyong 14, Open daily 5pm-late. 
Editor's Note: A previous version of this article said that the new Chit Hole is in Ekkamai, when it is located closer to Phra Khanong.
