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.

This place is absolutely great in every aspect from the venue, to the staff to the beers themselves. It’s not often you can sit at the bar and have your beers directly poured from the tank in which they were brewed. We went early in...More

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.
