Is it easy for a foreigner to find these places?                                                                 It is often very difficult just to find the breweries and they do not market themselves towards tourists. This is the first book that have listed every brewery in Vietnam. A few other guide books mentions a few of them, for example Lonely planet has listed five breweries. Most breweries just gathers the local crowd but after reading the book you will know how to drink the local way and understand the shouting and cheering that goes on from lunch time to late night.
