I remember the first glass of craft beer that I had in California was amazing, since that day I never look back. Always searching for the next best glass of craft beer. Since I moved to Vietnam a year ago, my love for craft beer has elevated even more. I know that many share the same experience I do with craft beer.

With the second rise of craft beer in Vietnam. The craft beer scene has never been more exciting. There are now more than 30 breweries old and new in Vietnam, all with their own distinctive style and unique combination of exotic local ingredients. This includes as pomelo, cacao beans, passion fruit, dragon fruit and many more beautiful ingredients found in Southeast Asia. More and more breweries are breaking the boundaries and reshaping the craft beer industry in Vietnam, at the same time causing a stir and demanding attention in the craft beer community all over the world. Leading the pack Vietnam drinking culture is the second-highest consumer of beer in Asia, more than 4 billion liters were consumed in 2018 according to Vietcetera.com. This represents the major increase of 40% since two years ago. The consumers have now developed a taste for quality beer and we predict that the market is expanding even more, with the consumer expanded knowledge. With consumers understanding that to produce high-quality beer, there’s a lot research and development that needs to take place. Most of all is the passion and love that produce a top-caliber craft beer. With that being said, at The Bench, we proudly serve selections of our favorite craft beer vendors on the market.
