Vietnam Craft Breweries

Probably Vietnam’s most famous craft beer is bia hoi (literally ‘gassy beer’), a light lager with rice as adjunct, brewed informally and fresh daily, without preservatives in a way that gives it a very short shelf life.

Perhaps it’s this that forms the basis of the rest of an apparently thriving Vietnamese craft beer industry. Unlike the rest of the craft beer crazy world, not much is made of Vietnam’s micro-breweries, even though they are plentiful and said to produce some pretty decent beer.
