Overview

The only Brewpub on the island of Koh Samui in the Gulf Of Thailand. We brew and serve a good selection of Craft Beers. Relaxing ambience with cool jazz and funky blues music. Chat with our brewmaster about beers. There's usually a lively conversation around the bar.

Walked past this place and saw the sign for craft beer. I was sold. I love craft beer and the place looks nice. Went in with two friends and we each ordered a different beer. Despite prices being high we couldn't wait to try it....More

Don't miss the opportunity to sample these fine ales brewed here in Samui. Jim the brewmaster is fun to talk with and his pretty staff are lovely.

We were interested to go there, a brew pub in Samui, what could be better. But, the beer disappointed on all counts. It was nearly flat, tasted like it had spoiled in the keg, and was not very cold. I can’t remember the last time...More

As a craft beer fan, I really wanted to like this place. Maybe we were there on an off night, but all three beers our party of three tried were flat and flavourless. I finished the IPA because I hate to waste beer but my...More

Jim made two new beers - an IPA and another stronger one. IPA was great, did not try the other new. The usual mix was great as always - bitter, summer and wheaty went down easily. Must have for all crafty lovers, the only place...More

Why did I not find this place earlier. A micro brewery offering a range of beers - larger all the way through to porter. The IPA is amazing and the wheat beer is amazingly fruity. Definitely coming back.

I was here in November 15 and at that time he didn't do food, but said he was planning to introduce it soon. But he does provide menus from nearby restaurants which can be delivered and consumed in the Bees Knees.
