/ Doug's Beer Republic / Review: Chang Export
Posted: 7 March 2015
Chang Export just seemed to pop up out of nowhere. It
is your best bet among the Chang Collection.
Avg price/liter: USD 2.63
ABV %: 5.0
Up until September of 2011,
the only Changs you'd spot on Thai supermarket shelves were
mainstays Chang Classic
and Chang Draught.
Then in October 2011 Bangkok was awash in floods and there
were beer shortages, and Chang Export just seemed to pop up
out of nowhere while the other Chang product line
temporarily ceased production.
Chang Export, like Chang
Draught, uses no rice. The alcohol content is the
same, and neither use rice, just malt and hops. The
Export version has the darker and richer taste of the two.
Is Chang Export really the
version that is available outside Thailand but in bottles
resembling Chang Classic? Someone like me will never
find out because I wouldn't waste money on Chang if I were
outside Thailand. But if you're different and you are
gung ho to reach for a Chang, Chang Export is your best bet
among the Chang Collection.
