That was 5-6 years ago now, but we still have and use some products we bought that evening. I'll check to source (i.e. MrsJR8 hehe) how it was we got admittance and revert.*

What I do know is that some of the more prominent embassies have (or had...?) what are effectively annual open days in their grounds.

*Edit/update:
Mrs. JR8: 'It was open to the public, so we just walked in
Me: Ok thanks. Was it is like Thai National day or something?
Her: That I don't know. But I think it's an annual open house at the Thai emb

The beer brands sold there aren't exactly discounted. Whatever you can find there, you can almost find them at Thirsty, Cider Pit or other independent beer places for similar price.

Went there twice and decided to take my money elsewhere for music and beer.

bgd, wrong person! :P

+1, plus I didn't care for some of the beers I had there, too quirky for me

not worth the money IMHO, plus it was really hot when I went

I think they have listened to you, only one "quirky" brewery (MOA) this year. None of the local microbreweries are there.

None of the beers I tried there were local, they were American, Aussie, and Japanese.

Elsewhere I have had an MOA IPA, was a bit meh.
