Local draught beer, or bia hoi in Vietnamese, is as light and refreshing as beer can get. It’s also brewed daily and delivered to establishments around the city, so its freshness is guaranteed. On Ta Hien street, people come together to enjoy the beer and also the community that gathers around small makeshift tables to knock back pints late into the night. Sit in the middle of the road, shoulder-to-shoulder with red-faced strangers all cheering and clanking the distinctive green bia hoi glasses. It’s a unique experience that can’t be missed during a visit to Hanoi.
