Duke of Beeringtion, newly opened in late December 2018, is a craft beer bottle shop, tasting room, and beer garden located in the space previously occupied by Straydog craft beer bar, situated in the exterior courtyard of a restaurant called Toby’s, located right off the Sukhumvit Soi 38 sidewalk, 650 meters south of Sukhumvit Road. To get here, travel to Thonglor BTS Station, and exit using Exit 4. At bottom of stairs, double-back 180 degrees to your right. Walk 15 meters to Sukhumvit Soi 38, and turn left. Walk 650 meters until you reach the first cross-street, which will be on your left. Toby’s restaurant sits on the near (north) corner:
The sign up-close:
As you approach the entrance to the restaurant, you will see the Duke of Beerington bottle shop at the left side of small courtyard. Viewed fro the street:
The way things work here, Toby’s is the indoor restaurant, and Duke of Beerington is the outdoor craft beer bar – but you can order beer inside Toby’s, and you can order food in the courtyard – and you just pay the tabs separately for all that you consume.
They have four beer coolers, containing more than 100 canned and bottled craft beer – with a very good selection:
They also offer three different Brothers ciders, and a few local mass market beers (at the request of the restaurant owners).
Here is a photo of the food menu – no Thai food here:
When you enter the restaurant, you are initially in a small coffee shop section – with two two-person tables, next to large “coffee kitchen”:There are then several steps up to a raised dining section. To the left is a seating area and a “pass-through” window from the kitchen:
To the right is a larger seating area, with an alcove at the far end that has a sofa:
There is also a sort of “rail” that overlooks the coffee shop section – with five seats along that rail.
At rear left of the photo above are the doors that lead to the separate men’s and women’s toilets,which are down a very short cement walkway. Here is a clearer photo of those doors:
The toilets are simple, but well-maintained.
There are no video screens here. Music inside was western easy-listening music, played at a low background level. Music in the Duke of Beerington courtyard is pleasant modern jazz, at a moderate level.
Parking is available outside, along Soi 38 (but beware – it is alternate side parking, on a different side of the street each day) . Smoking is permitted only in the outdoor seating area.
To reach the craft beer courtyard, there is doorway in one corner of the restaurant, descending several step into the courtyard seating area (you can see this doorway back in the second photograph of this listing).
During rainy season, they will have a large an overhead umbrella/awning covering the seating area.
They have their opening schedule on the glass wall facing the courtyard:
The Duke of Beerington is a one-man show, reflecting the investment of Khun “Um”, who runs the craft beer operation all by himself. Khun Um is very friendly, and very appreciative of visitors. He speaks fluent English, at one point having lived for seven years in the UK.
The beer selection was superior here – they had almost all of my very favorite beers!
