KANCHANABURI — Take three-hour ride out of the capital to enjoy a weekend getaway downing fine craft beer in a tropical garden next along the Khwae Yai River.

Billed as the biggest craft beer festival in the country, Craft ‘N Roll Carnival 2 will bring together more than 30 domestic breweries including fresh-to-the-field homebrew What the Pug Beer, the two beer bros behind Nonthaburi’s Devanom Beer and My Beer Friend from Chiang Mai.

Many top Thai brewers will be there along with live performances by indie rock band De Flamingo, glam rock trio Chanudom and folk-pop crew Arak and the Pisatband.

The free-flow craft drink event is hosted by Craft ‘N Roll, an active craft beer community, and will go from 7pm to midnight on Feb. 25 at the Mida Resort Kanchanaburi.

Tickets are 1,500 baht and limited to only 1,000 tickets. Two tickets with a room at the resort are 5,000 baht, but limited to 30 rooms only.  The tickets will be sold online on Dec. 9.

Mida Resort Kanchanaburi is an upscale resort located in Kanchanaburi’s Muang district, and close to tourist attractions the River Kwai Bridge and Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.
