We found this place on TripAdvisor its recommended as the best bar with biggest selection of beers so we had to try! They just received a huge beer delivery with many interesting labels we ended up spending the whole night and trying different beers over...a burger and a Cubano sandwich. Both were excellent such as their signature Greek salad - they also have a Greek restaurant next door and you can order from that menu as well as the classic burger/pizza fare. There are hundreds of beers and 15 are on taps what they allow you to sample before ordering. Fantastic!More

An amazing selection of craft beers located in the heart of the city, even during Covid times they carry well over 200 different kinds of beers. Great sized burgers, professional pool tables, air con. Just awesome!

An oasis in paradise. Terrific selection of craft beers and just about anything else you may want to drink. Excellent selection of food from pizza, burgers, paninis, Thai and Greek foods. Family friendly and a great place to hang out with friends or solo. Staff...and regulars are always smiling and friendly. A nice bonus is the pool tables. Likely the best in chiang mai. Highly recommend!More

Takes a bit of finding but worth it for the pool hall atmosphere and the amazing array of beers. I had a small beer from New Zealand which was excellent along with a goats cheese and basil panini. The staff gave my girlfriend a small...taster of a honey beer after which she polished off a whole pint. I have no idea how they source 250 beers but seem to be unaffected by the pandemic. If you like good beer it is a must.More

My friend & I incidentally find out this places during raining in the night ! I can says it is biggest beer selection more than Bangkok . **Unbelievable!! ** Awesome spot ,craft beer also lots of selection of international&Thai beers.   The Staff was very friendly...& great service smile ; plus the owner were took good care of all customers and warmly greeting us. It is Super cool bar. The location in the same alley as Thapae Gate Boxing Stadium. It’s modern design. You can enjoy play pool here and also nice place to watch sports . It’s got 2-3 beautiful pool tables but the main attraction is the large bar with 300 of differences craft beer from around the world. We cannot skip talk about their food. there is a great menu; we tried Chicken breast Cordon bleu. It was healthy and delicious food here!! The price here is reasonable! Not expensive :) Highly recommend everyone visit here when you are travel to Chaing Mai & you are craft beer lover. I will definitely be back again & again Good food, amazing atmosphere and all the craft beer i damn love!More

I visited this place based on the good reviews and my love of burgers. I was very disappointed. It may be unfair to judge the beverage selection in this day and age, but half the selection was crossed out, and my carefully selected beer from...what remained was neither available. I ended up drinking Chang. I honestly do not know what the people praising the burgers are talking about. You can do better at several cheaper places very nearby. Will not be back, probably ever.More

I'm sorry for the late reply I was on my vacation and just reading your input now. TripAdvisor is a double edged sword... It's great for travelers and diners to get good information. The downside is, people with an axe to grind get a chance...More

Convenient location and great beer selection. It's a pool hall, so well lit, pool league was going on on the back two tables. Bunch of expats.

Been here twice during our visit to Chiang Mai. It’s the only verified venue at the beer app Untappd, and that’s for a reason. The Beer menu has over 250 different beers in all kinds of styles. Also really nice staff!

What an incredible selection of yummy beers. Most of Chiang Mai is full of crap beer, but for those beer aficionados out there, this is the place to be. I just keep coming back day after day. Cant get enough! Even has a wide selection...of awesome New Zealand craft beers!More

We are from Portland, Oregon and love to seek out good craft beer wherever we travel. Renegade was a great find on our last night in Chiang Mai; right in old town and near amazing khao soi at Aroon Rai. Renegade is a live sports.../ billiards bar with a HUGE craft beer selection; hundreds from all over the world, including many “from” Thailand itself. Unfortunately, in Thailand, national alcohol laws make craft beer difficult to find; many would-be brewers must brew across the border and import back to Thailand (facing import levies of up to 60%). That was the case with our first two beers at Renegade: Chiang Mai Blossom Weizen and My Beer Friend Haze Survivor, both brewed in Cambodia by Thai brewers. Both beers that we would not have been able to try at the vast majority of local restaurants here. They also have many beers from Portland, which we did not order, of course, but it was nice to see how far their stock is pulled from. Prices at Renegade start at around 150 baht, going all the way up to 900+ baht for rare beers that would be expensive anywhere you can find them. I would highly recommend Renegade for craft beer lovers, anyone sick of Chang and Singha, adventurous drinkers ready to try something new, and ex-pats pining for a taste of home.More

In a city where Chang seems more popular than water, this place stands out. The selection is huge! I live in Portland, OR and it has American beers I can’t find there. It has the largest selection of Thailand beers I’ve seen yet, too. Service...is friendly, and prices are fair considering how expensive beer it is to import into Thailand. I would recommend to anyone not seeking out cheap, low-quality beer.More

Many beers on tap and an even bigger selection in bottle form. Much recommended if you are over on the east of the old town. Very close to the gate.
