After my trip to Vietnam and Thailand, I am totally in love with the beer there.
In Vietnam they have “bia hoi” (I think it pronounces beer hoy), and it’s a unique taste of very light draft lager made in small batches at the local. Come to the country, and in the afternoon, men sit on plastic stool and laugh and chat about work and life. The atmosphere is like an outdoor pub, and much more freedom. Popular Vietnamese beer producers are: Sabeco Brewery with Saigon Beer and 33 Beer; Vietnam Brewery Ltd, a joint-venture of Heineken Asia Pacific in Vietnam, which produces Heineken, Tiger Beer and Larue Beer; and Habeco, who produces Hanoi Beer and Truc Bach Beer. Saigon Beer is the most well-known. Hue Brewery Ltd, has Huda Beer and Dai Viet, the only commercial black beer in Vietnam.
For one thing backpackers would go crazy about rather than anything, it will definitely be cheap beer. Thailand has that charm, while it might not always taste as great as variety of brands the appear, Thai beer is also light and plentiful. Goes well with local dishes, just think twice before ordering it in a western restaurant. You can try iconic brands like Singha (actually pronounces sing), Chang, Leon. You find a lot of beer in Thailand that has collaboration with foreign company. That’s because the government limits the importation of beer, and all the imported has to have a label on top of the cap. So partnerships with Western brewers are very common with Thai brand.
