By special request

I'm not much of a beer drinker myself but mr bakedbean will slurp a Skol or Asahi. There was also some Myanmar beer available in Penang at quite a decent price.

What's available and where in Penang? In KL? Any pukka British beers around?

Depends whether you class Guiness as British! ;-) You can get Guiness in Tesco in Melaka - have also seen (although not British) Carlsberg, also in Tesco.

I've seen Boddingtons cans around but when I've tried them they tasted well old and some cans were out of buy by or use by dates.
Insipid to say the least.

Oh dear.... British Beer sightings seem a bit thin on the ground... I was in one bar that sold Kilkenny draft, and it obviously didn't travel well. That's all I've seen. I was hoping Tescos would send a container or two over every now and then!
So far I've been alternating between Tiger and Anchor, which are fine when you're outside in the warm weather, but that novelty will wear off pretty quickly!!

Whilst Mr BakedBean is searching for British beer in Penang, he might like to be distracted from his quest at:

Brussels Beer Café at Gurney Paragon
Weissbrau German Bistro & Bar at Straits Quay
Ingolf‘s Kneipe German Restaurant, near the Copthorne Orchid Hotel in Tanjung Bungah

All the above have several different beers on tap.

Cheers!

PS. Where's the best Guinness on tap in Penang?

Yes I have informed Mr bb about the Brussels Beer Cafe in the Paragon. And is that correct....Tetleys on draught?

Does anyone actually drink at Weissbrau? I've walked past many times and never seen anyone in there.

Are there no British micro brewers in Malaysia, There is a guy in Chile doing quite well serving the ex pats

Or is the cost of setting up such a business difficult?

Not sure.
Farquhar's bar at the E&O hotel used to have Tetleys on draught - and may do still. Pretty soon you'll be able to take the boat from the E&O to Straits Quay. That's one way to start a pub crawl.

Blimey that's cheap! I've been paying RM9.0 for a small can of Tiger... it's more expensive here than Singapore!!
