Phuket Brewery is a new show-and-entertainment venue and a welcome addition to the Phuket Town nightlife scene. It has all the best elements of a pub, a restaurant and a theater rolled into one. This is a decent place to check out a local scene. The brewery is located directly opposite Tesco-Lotus in Phuket Town. Inside the brewery there is a massive hall with a huge stage and a seating capacity of more than 1,000 along with VIP rooms for private groups.
The nightly show starts at 7 pm. Entertainment comes in many forms, such as live music, magic shows, juggling, acrobatics and traditional Southern Thai dance. You can kick back with dinner and be entertained for an entire night. What’s more, admission is free.
The Phuket brewery has its own beer, Pearl Beer, brewed in-house at a micro-brewery. A one-liter jug of beer will cost you around 250 to 350 baht depending on your style. There are three different kinds of Pearl Beer: a lager, a dark beer and a wheat beer. If you don’t like beer, there is also a cocktail menu. The food menu has various Thai dishes, including deep-fried pork knuckle –- brewery style. Delicious.
Phuket Brewery is occasionally used a venue to host special events, such as concerts. Famous Thai bands like Sek Loso and Carabao have graced the stage in recent months. Even if you’re unfamiliar with Thai bands, the big concerts are always worth checking out. Cheap beer and a crowd of excited locals usually make for a good night’s fun.
If there is a special event on, tickets are about 150 to 250 baht, which will include a drink. Also, every Thursday night is ladies’ night, which means all females get a special cocktail for free. Oddly, there’s also a hoteliers’ night on Mondays. Show your hotelier ID card and get a 15% discount.
