Thailand’s number one selling beer is Beer Chang, which you can spot by its distinctive green label adorned with two elephants. In Thai, Chang means elephant and that’s a good name for this beer since Chang Classic really packs a punch at 6.4%, especially when served in the common 630 milliliter size. That’s about double the size and double the strength of a typical light beer in the US, so four times the alcohol per bottle! Beer Chang is also a lager, though the malt flavor is a little more intense than Singha’s. Beer Chang is very popular, but often it's not available in nicer restaurants.
Classic, Draught and Light:
There are now three kinds of Chang Beer available -- Classic, Draught and Light. Classic is regular Chang. Draught is slightly weaker, both in terms of flavor and alcohol content (it's 5% versus 6.4%) but still has that distinctive malty taste and aroma. Chang Light, with 4% alcohol, is a surprisingly full-bodied light beer and although alcohol content is lower, does not taste watered down.
