Located in downtown of Bangkok, this place is very famous for local beer fellows here along with several foreign visitors.

There are 3 draught beers on tap; Hefe, Dunkel and Lager brew with traditional German's brewing process also with some part of ingredients that are imported from Germany. Personally, my preference is a Dunkel which is so smooth and rich malty whilst their Hefe is fairly decent. For a Lager, I have still never tried on yet. In case if you are hungry, there are variety of foods to fill you up but my recommendation is fried pork knuckle which is a must and goes well with their beer at the same time.

Take a seat, enjoy a good beer and food, mesmerize by the amusing show on stage. This is quite a good place.

So.. the place, which is inside a giant beer keg, is set up like an Octoberfest style hall.. long tables, HUGE, lots of people when I arrived at about 8pm. There is a huge stage in the front of the place with lavish long red curtains that pull shut at the completion of each act. The acts were mixed.. earlier in the evening there were people playing more traditional Thai music, more laid back and enjoyable (for me anyway). As the evening wore on and as people grew more and more rowdy, the entertainment followed suit. As the chorus line dancing began, I made my hasty exit.

The highlight of this place is definitely the beer (and I didn't try the food, so I don't know about that). There are three beers brewed at Tawandang, by a brewer who was brought over from Germany by the Thai owners (so I was informed by a nice French expat sitting on my right). Of these three, I tried the wheat and dunkel, and both were absolutely phenomenal. They tasted really fresh and to style with that Bavarian banana/clove yeast flavor. The wheat is probably the best I've found on draught in Thailand.. and the price is decent at 120 B for a half litre.

I recommend going to this place for sure, but if you're not up for a rowdy drunken party or don't particularly like to dance, get there early and take off early. I suppose the dancing would be worth staying for, if only to witness.

Ohmigod I just danced in a chorus line! Bangkok has a million and one suprises, but nothing prepares you for the spectacle of Tawandang German Brewery.

Before I step in I'm shocked. The building looks like a giant, glowing wooden keg surrounded by a huge beergarden. Inside the real bronze beer casks proudly shine while employees dash around drawing fresh pints directly from them. A 2nd floor balcony wraps around the inside of the giant keg and faces towards the brightly lit music stage. Every table is occupied despite it being 11:00pm on a Wednesday night.

Everybody drinks from glasses and comically tall 5.0L beer towers. They don't serve bottled beer. This Thailand, not Germany? There's 3 choices of Lager, Dunker, and Weizen. It's my last night in Thailand so I have to order them all. And more.

I ordered in Thai, so naturally I ended up with a constant stream of staff coming by to be friends with the Thai-talking Farang. I was never alone...hell I got phone numbers. The beers don't get superhigh marks, but at least you can tell the difference among them by taste. After sampling all of them I stuck with the Dunkel. Mmmm. Some caramel and coffee and leather and a touch of bitterness.

The Thai/PanEuro menu is the largest of any breweries' I've seen so far. Prices are on par for a place of this level. I already had my burger from The Londoner so I had to turn away several food offers from my attentive staff. Plus the stage show is too crazy to ignore. Entertainment here is beyond the usual crappy covers. The band actually has talent--although watching the stage is akin to a bad drug trip. Ladies swing from the ceiling while Elvises, showgirls, robots, and drag queens dance around. There's more costume changes than a Cher concert. God, I'm not even drunk yet.

When the beer kicks in I decide to wander the place. I head up to the balcony and the staff is dancing in a chorus line streching around the inside barrel wall. They motion me to join in. Needless to say the night only got better from there.
