Theres basically 4 beers in Cambodia. Cambodia Beer is probably the best, but there really isn’t much competition.
Cambodia is one of those countries that has a tourist beer, namely Angkor a beer for the die hard locals, namely Ganzberg (which is horrendous) and a nice normal beer that everyone drinks, ala Cambodia Beer!
Who makes Cambodia Beer?
Well funnily enough I have previously spoken of this in my #colaquest coverage of Ize Cola (a soft drink marginally than its rival Big Cola) that both are made by Chip Mong Group. It was difficult even to find this information as there is scant info online about the beer.
Where can I buy Cambodia Beer?
Everywhere! A draft costs as little as 50 cents and a bottle rarely exceeds 2 bucks even in fancy joints!
How do you serve the Beer?
It’s served draft in most places, but when by the bottle they do the whole beer on ice thing that I’m kinda getting used to. Some say the ice is due to previous lack of refrigeration others that it’s to mask the taste. You be the judge..
Rebranding of Cambodia Beer
In December of 2019 Cambodia rebranded with a tougher in your face bulked letter logo. Previously it was more traditional. I have emphasised this boring fact through featuring old logo below.
Is it any good?
On a hot day, which to be fair is most days here a draft Cambodia can be amazing. When it’s in bottle form the previously mentioned ice does the trick, but is it good? It’s great value for 50 cents and it’s the best beer made in Cambodia. Take from that what you will…..
