One beer is hardly a reason to write an article about good Vietnamese beer. Well, no there is another. Another beer I knew about but avoided for, reasons. Partly laziness, mostly because there was craft beer now and I did not see the point. It was not until Alexander from Barett told me that their dark beer was based on a Munich Dunkle and that he had worked on developing the recipes for this

The answer is there are some decent Vietnamese beers and a beer you could drink all day not get too drunk or empty your wallet. However, when it comes to good Vietnamese beer, there are two, the NaDa Amber and the Dai Viet Black. They may cost slightly more, but they are still cheaper than the western beers, and their Lagers which are slightly elevated from the rest are well within the budget of the cheap expat.
You can find these beers at:

(Dai Viet) Phố Trịnh Công Sơn- Trịnh Công Sơn, Tây Hồ, Hà Nội
