The hot and humid weather lends itself to the drinking of lagers and pilsners. As a result there are very few “native” ales to be found in Vietnam. Of course you can pick up imports, but the team at Pasteur St are building a solid reputation with their local takes on IPAs, Stouts and Ales.
Easily the best beer I tasted in Vietnam (but then I’m not a fan of lagers!)
So many of the best places in Saigon and Hanoi seem to reside at the end of a narrow alley, and up some stairs.
Clockwise from the coaster : Petite Saison, Saigon Saison, Jasmine IPA, Nitro Coffee Brown Ale and Chocolate Stout
All great but the Saigon Saison and Jasmine IPA were the standouts for me.
