Yes, NK & UT, and maybe in some 7-11 & bars, have purchased from both.  Makro by the box, and cheapest vendor. Partial to the Dark myself, and use to be my 'go to'

Last time (around month ago), I got some Beer Lao Dark in in some bar in Bangkok and noticed that taste is degraded, tastes watery and more bitter than before. Maybe just a bad batch, need to investigate further.

Might be old. Beer only good for 3 months

Over 2 yrs of 'situation' and no customers ... probably a few vendors holding stock they should have tossed a long time ago.  Most beers, mass produced, will last about 1 year.  I personally won't buy anything over a month or 2 old.  As it take me a month or 2, to polish off a slab of 12 / 490ml

I think Beer Lao has exp date, 1 yr after produced / fill date.

 

Kopper Craft & Snowy have only a fill date on the bottom of the cans,

or on the cardboard slab if buying 12 from Makro.

It depends on the beer. Not same, different!

I had a neighbor in Udon maybe 16 years ago who had a Lao wife and every six weeks or so would bring me back a case each of blonde and dark from his Vientiane conjugal visits. After a couple of years, I lost the taste for it but just before the Covid lock-downs, I was in Savanakhet and they had an 'IPA style' variation with a green label. It was quite decent and made for a pleasant change. I have heard that it can be had in Bangkok but probably for a silly price. It's not THAT special.

Heaps in udon but not everywhere definitely not all 7/11s . Bars is a lucky dip. If you want cases go to the bigger Thai style "bottle shops" they will sell by the case.
