Judging from the amount of money they've raised so far, no one seems to want their name tattooed on the bar owner's butt.

Just when you thought the situation couldn't get any worse, we get this little gem:

Not all the news is bad....seems that the local macro-brewers are paying top dollar for qualified brewing advice

And it's those macro brewers who are the root cause of the problem.

I'm not so sure that's true. Have a friend at Singha....all they care about is Chang. Even Heineken and Asahi might as well be home brews. From a macro-brew standpoint, let all these little guys battle it out amongst themselves (with their own money, time, research, etc). If someone comes up with something that really works and sells, they can just swoop in and buy the thing up. Very effective model in the US...

Local business owners are usually hostile to any new entry into their market. In this case, I suspect the big breweries' main concern is not microbreweries taking too big a share of the market but the introduction of better beers throughout the country may lead to regular buyers of Thai lager realising just how awful the stuff is. When that happens national beer drinking habits may change. Customers will expect something better, and the breweries will have to spend more on quality and diversity of their product range.
