Pasteur Street Brewing Company has provided Vietnam with world-class beer styles since 2014, earning the country its first World Beer Cup Medal in 2016. They combine professional American craft brewing techniques with fresh Vietnamese ingredients in each beer they make.
Pasteur Street Brewing Company’s flagship beer is an American IPA brewed with Jasmine flowers from Sapa, while their newest style is a low-alcohol Chanh Muoi beer with salted lime.
The Hoang Sa location will have 32 different taps (20 on the ground floor and 12 on the rooftop), offering a large selection of their beers, including other favorites such as their Pomelo IPA, Passionfruit Wheat Ale, and God Water Craft Lager. They will also focus on highlighting guest tap offerings from other suppliers in the craft beer community.
Pasteur Street Brewing Company’s food menu encourages family-style sharing and pairs perfectly with their beers. They offer a mixture of international and Vietnamese dishes like house-made sausages, smoked barbeque, and Nashville Hot Chicken. Much of Pasteur Street’s food uses beer as an ingredient to enhance flavors and pairings.
The grand opening party on September 16 will host a variety of events, including a photo booth and a tattoo pop-up. There will also be performances by MC/Magician Petey Majik Nguyen and Viet pop punk band Da So Toi.
Speaking of their new taproom opening, the company’s CEO and Brewmaster, Alex Violette, said, “We have always valued creating a welcoming environment in our taprooms where guests can experience craft beer in a way they may not have before. Hoang Sa is going to be great for that. It really allows people to understand who we are as a company.”
Pasteur Street Brewing Company is a proud pioneer of craft breweries in Vietnam, making more flavorful beers available to Vietnamese consumers.
With such a great focus on local ingredients, their beers match well with the Vietnamese pallet and cuisine, and Alex and his team have played a significant role in bringing the craft beer boom to Vietnam with a local feel.
