BANGKOK – More than 400 people and organizations involved in the craft beer trade have been summoned by regulatory authorities in Thailand for posting photos of the beer on social media.
On Thursday, six craft beer associations filed a complaint with the House of Representatives’ Public Health Commission to protest the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act, which prohibits the display of alcohol for promotional purposes.
They argue that the law is unclear and violates their right to communicate with customers.
A representative of the beer associations says that violations of the law are punishable by a fine of 50,000 to 500,000 baht ($ 1,580 to $ 15,800) and a prison term of one year.
The complainants claim that their businesses suffered from measures to prevent the spread of coronary heart disease, which included a ban on the sale of alcoholic beverages, the closing of bars and a curfew. A curfew starting at 11 p.m. is still in effect.
Association representative Supapong Preunglampoo says the industry contributes to Thailand’s economic growth and said, “There are a lot of people who work in this sector who are struggling to survive here.”
