The vietnamese seem to have developed (with the help of Austrians) something that the remainder of the world should copy. Nameless microbrewies make kegs of unpasteurized draught beer daily and deliver it all over the country. This beer is used the same day or must be discarded. It is available on virtually every block at streetside stands, and is called "bia hoi" (fresh beer).
Although there are inside establishments with bia hoi, most of them are streetside. In this case, we are sitting on the ubiquitous short little stools on a street corner quafing my fourth for the evening. Since one sweats it out faster than you can drink it, one doesn't seem to become intoxicated and I have yet to see an intoxicated person in Vietnam although everyone is drinking beer. The other picture is a view of the bia hoi stand across the street corner from my short stool.
Each glassful cost just ten to twenty cents US each at these streetside stands, so I am looking more and more German every day.
