Microbreweries in HCMC -2014

Microbreweries and pubs in HO CHI MINH CITY

I decided to keep the old posts just to see the history later on. So much has happened in Vietnam since 2014. I am now updating beervn.com but does the latest articles on https://abudhabibeer.com/ from 2021. Beervn.com is updated a few times per year.

The first real Craft brewery in Vietnam.

The team behind Pasteur street brewing company is Alex Violette and Bethany Lovato from Colorado along with John Reid; an American who has been living in Vietnam for a few years. There are many who have tried to open a brewpub like this one in Vietnam but this is the first one to succeed. It’s really difficult for foreigners to run small scale businesses in Vietnam and requires a lot of patience and a strong dedication.

Alex and Bethany were working at Upslope Brewing Company in the United States which offers a wide selection of beer on tap. A few beer styles that Upslope makes are: Pale ale, craft lager, pumpkin ale, christmas ale, thai style white ale, india pale ale, brown ale, belgian style pale ale, foreign style stout, imperial pale ale and brown ale.

  1. Just wanted to say thanks for putting this great site together. Made it really easy to find good beer in Vietnam.

  2. A blog dedicated to microbreweries in Vietnam – that is genius! Wish I’d discovered this before I visited. I’ll remember for next time.

  3. How about including Fuzzy Logic brewery, Bia Craft in district 2, Britz Craft Ale Pub in district 7. These are pretty good too:)))

  4. Great! Came across brewery selling stout (dark beer) on last day of 7-day trip in 2012. Just visited HCM again mid-Dec but couldn’t remember the location. Next trip in Feb will surely know where to enjoy a few glasses of freshly crafted beer with friends.

    • I have limited time in Saigon, and will be writing about the beers of Vietnam for an online magazine. I’m particularly interested in ones owned and operated by Vietnamese people rather than expats.

      Which would you recommend I check out?

      Thanks. Excellent stuff here!
