Craft beers in Vietnam - A heads up!
The Craft Beer scene is probably one of the “biggest ” and best leaked travel secrets about Vietnam to hit the tourist map. It is unmistakably an industry that is being fast tracked as we head out of Covid.
It is a “scene”. It's a taste sensation. It's a "thing" you have to try. As you will find out in today’s episode, it’s a product produced from passion, skill and local flavours, which means it also has a story. You don’t have to strictly be a beer drinker to join in the fun. But you do have to come to Vietnam to experience it.
Today I have the distinct advantage of sharing with you a Brewers story. Please allow me to introduce Gary Bett, as the Founder and Head Brewer of the ‘Five Elements Brewing Company’, which is a small independent brewery in Da Nang.
