I’m Koh Samui on holiday and discovered The Bees Knees! Delighted with how delicious each of the beers we tasted were! The brewer/owner was onsite and was very pleasant to talk beer with. Would happily recommend this place to all!

They brew their own real ales on the premises and it tastes excellent . I'm drinking the IPA now :). Brews are Summer Bee, Black Bee, Wheaty Bee, Bitter Bee and a lovely IPA that is on as a special at the moment.

I really enjoyed visiting this Brewpub. A great discovery during my meandering around the Chaweng and Bophut area. The beers are superb. It makes drinking Chang, Singha and Leo not as enticing anymore! Service was very attentive by the Thai lady. The pub seems to...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.
