Drowning In A World Of Award Winning Beers

They all seem to have an award, but are the beers any good?

They all seem to have an award, but are the beers any good?

Thailand is known for a lot of things, but award-winning beer isn’t one of them. And yet, glance over the bottles of any one picked at random, and you’ll notice that every single one is award winning!

Once Thailand’s bestselling beer and still its most famous, Singha managed to snag a Medal Of Quality Award from Belgium in 1971. Thirty years later, it earned another gold medal at the Australian International Beer Awards. In 2002, a bronze in the European low alcohol lager/German light beer category at the International Beer Summit in Osaka, Japan, and a gold in this same category the following year. And finally, in 2004, a silver medal at the Australian International Beer Awards.

Singha’s manufacturer, Boon Rawd, also manufactures a lower end beer called Leo. Just like its bigger and more famous brother, Leo’s swimming in the beer awards. In 2001, it won both a gold medal and a World Brew Association Beer Quality Award in Doemens, Germany. In 2002,  another gold medal and the American Tasting Award of Excellence at the National Board of the American Tasting Institute in the U.S. In 2003, an international trophy for quality in Spain. And in 2004, a bronze medal at the Australian International Beer Awards.
