New craft beers and breweries are now popular Vietnam&...

Its been a very exciting time for beer lovers in Vietnam. The first craft brewery Pasteur Street Brewing and the first brewery making ale, Platinum beer did open in 2015.

The concept with tap rooms and bars selling craft beers is also introduced to the beer loving people in Vietnam.

One good example is Bia craft that opened in august 2016 in Ho Chi Minh City, offering their own brewed craft beer with guest taps and imported craft beer on bottle.

Bia craft are currently serving five of their own beers on tap; Đừng Chọc Tao Pale Ale, Lùn Mà Láo Blonde Ale,  Xấu Mà Chảnh IPA,  Biết Chết Liến Double IPA and Ngu Mà Lí Amber Ale.

Vietnam in a global context

The question is if the local crowds demand for craft beer will rise fast like in Russia, where new breweries and tap bars are opening almost every month or a more moderate increase like in Germany.

In Germany traditions come before curiosity and in most craft beer bars you will meet a lot of other nationalities than German. While Russian craft beer bars are dominated by Russians going nuts on all craft beer they can try. The beer industry is taken by surprise when Russia sailed up as a much more progressive nation compared with Germany when it comes to craft beer. What will happen in Vietnam?

Craft beer is exploding in Russia, a few years ago it was non-existing. Now most breweries covers a wide range of styles and tap rooms can be found at more than 40 places in Moscow.

Craft beer and local microbreweries in Vietnam

Many breweries will open in 2016 in Vietnam but is it the traditional Czech and German styled breweries or craft breweries that will attract the new beer consumers. The Bia Hoi beer and bottled lagers got widely distributed during the 1950s in Vietnam.

When the communism collapsed in Europe, the Vietnamese that returned home from Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia in the 1990s they brought with them recipes and technology. That’s why there are about 45 Czech and German styled microbreweries in Vietnam.

The year of the horse, 2014 was the year of change in Vietnam. Home brewers and beer consumers was ready for a renewal. The phenomenon with beer clubs, attracting the younger crowd became widely popular and importers started to look at other beer nations than Belgium.

The first craft brewery opened in 2015 by American expats and a few places started to sell craft beer despite it was five times more expensive than a local beer.

The two main microbrew chains in Vietnam are Goldmalt with Czech beer and Legend beer with German. Some of their brew pubs are more like franchised and not part of the chain.

Goldmalt are building their own brewery systems and has recently installed a microbrewery in Japan. Legend beer has a handful of places and has a central distribution.

Legend Beer, Long Bien, Hanoi

Long Bien is situated on the other side of the Red river if you are in Hanoi city. Take a cab or local bus to the Aeon shopping mall at Co Linh street, about 20 minutes from Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi. This has a similar style as Legend beer in My Dinh in Hanoi with modern and fresh design.

Legend beer has five places in Hanoi. Not all of them brewing on site. The oldest one at 4 Vu Ngoc Phan in Hanoi has a huge beer hall with the brewery inside.

Legend beer at 4 vu ngoc phan has been in operation almost 20 years and is crowded on weekends, often with live music.

Goldmalts new spots

Goldmalt has many ongoing projects and a new brewery has opened outside Ho Chi Minh City. Unclear exactly where. There are also rumours that at least one more has opened in central Vietnam. The old Goldmalt, a few hundred meters from the aiport in Ho Chi Minh City has opened again.

Brewery Nhu Y

Restaurant Nhu Y (means Italian) is not new, but unknown outside Ninh Binh. Ninh Binh is a few hours drive south of Hanoi and is famous for the beautiful landscape. Beer is brewed at the restaurant and the beer style is defined as Czech lager.

Address: Trang An 2, Tan Thanh, Ninh Bình.Address: Trang An 2, Tan Thanh, Ninh Bình.

As the other local microbreweries, Czech craft beer is brewed accompanied with a extensive menu to be consumed in a big beer hall.

There is also another brewery in Ninh Binh. Vissai Brewery has two beers on tap and was installed in 2015. Vissai has two beers on tap and the brewery is just an arm’s length from your table.

Most craft beer is today consumed by expats in Vietnam, mainly in Ho Chi Minh City. It is understandable when the average monthly salary in Vietnam is US$150. A glass of bia hoi costs about 30 cent, a bottled 33 cl Hanoi or Saigon beer costs US$1 US, while a glass with craft beer costs about US $4.
