Who says Germans are the only fans of beers? Go to Vietnam on summer and see how the local people get jazzy over a glass of beer. It is so common that you can see it everywhere you go; from local spots to fancy restaurants, sidewalk shops to five star hotels, and from the city side to the countryside, you’ll never run out of supply; and that’s for sure.
Along with the imported brands such as Heineken, Tiger, and San Miguel, the local Vietnamese people have developed and produced their own taste of beer that can be tried with brands like Beer Hanoi, Beer Saigon, and Huda Beer. But today, we’ll set aside all these brands to talk about the most famous beer of all time in the country of motorbikes; the Bia Hoi.
1. Light, Fresh, and Extremely Cheap
Unlike the canned and bottled beers, bia hoi is made fresh everyday with no additives or preservatives. Owning a foamy, light texture with a crisp taste, bia hoi is a pleasant drink because its alcohol content is only 3% to 4.5% with an extremely cheap price of only 0.02USD for a glass.
2. Relaxing Atmosphere
Taste is different for everyone. But perhaps the number one reason why people love bia hoi is because of the atmosphere it brings. The modern, technological driven life, and pressure from work make everyone stressed out – thus making everyone, regardless of age and background, come there to relax, unwind, and share their life stories with each other.
3. Where to drink?
The most famous international streets for bia hoi is at the corner of Luong Ngoc Quyen and Ta Hien Streets in Hanoi, and of course Bui Vien Street in Ho Chi Minh City. Having a few glasses of bia hoi makes your Vietnam experience a little bit more genuine especially if you do it in small plastic stools and tables while eating dried squid or grilled meat.
