(Bia Hoi) " fresh beer" in Viet Nam
Bia Hoi means simply “fresh beer”. It is a type of draft beer popular and available throughout Vietnam. It is mostly to be found in small bars and on street corners. And it’s cheap, about 6,000 Dong. Bia Hoi is not merely a drink, it has become a whole culture and way of life. Beer can be used in conjunction with peanuts boiled, fried... or some other food. With foreigners - both visitors and residents, have been seduced by Bia Hoi culture. In Hanoi, there are alot of fresh beer in streets or in the Old Quarter, which is a popular place for the western backpackers. Sitting on the pavement on a tiny plastic chair watching scene beauty and a few friends to chat, even guts up after trying smoke "Thu?c lào" (rustic tobacco pipe) - it’s all a wonderful entertainment. In summer, "fresh beer" 's really loved. Almost people use it. Thinking, at the weekends, you can enjoy your time with your family or your friends - just with some cup of beer. It 's very interesting!
