Singha Beer Garden by Thai Spoon Restaurant
(Thai: สิงห์, correctly pronounced sing or singh, but typically pronounced by foreigners to Thailand as sing-ha, as that is how it is romanised) , is a 6% alcohol-by-volume (abv). It is also available in 6% abv draught version as Singha Lager Draft, and the new 3.5% abv Singha Light introduced in 2006.
Boon Rawd Brewery was the first of its kind in Thailand, and produces beer under the Singha brand name. The brewery was founded by Boonrawd Srethabutra, on whom HM King Prajadhipok Rama VII bestowed the aristocratic title of Phraya Bhirom Bhakdi. The brewery is still under the management of the Bhirom Bhakdi family (3rd and 4th generations).
Boon Rawd bought two German breweries in Hartmannsdorf and Mittweida in Saxony in 1994, which until 2001 produced Singha Gold for the Europe market. However, Singha beer has always been brewed and bottled in Thailand. Today, all of the Singha brands are produced only in Thailand, to preserve the original taste for the export market.
