ok dan, as usual dad is correct. "back in the day" san miguel was top shelf... and sought after when we came home to "the world ". now a days there are many more preferred beers [ at least by me] dinkle acker, pilsner urquel.. but they are european.. as for bia viet nam i preferred sai gon in a glass of ice.. its more refreshing that way in the tropics, plus my daddy taught me to always drink beer from a glass [ and dad is always right]... beers to stay away from "con cap do" [ red tiger bia] but i'll still enjoy a btl of that when i can for nostalgia sake... got more dan but i gotta go .. got tix to the ball game tonight where the best thing they serve is "rolling rock "... i'll meet you in sai gon /w your dad and all your uncles , we'll sample them all ,duoc khong ?
oh yeah, i once drank 2 btls of sea horse wine with a customs agent. another time a friend went to a small "medicine shop" and had them fill his plastic litter btl with some dark liquid that cam out of a giant jug... God knows what was in that... the best home made wine i ever had in vn was in "xa doai" a small farming village famous for their oranges. it was a clear rice wine with a handfull of chopped oranges at the bottom of the btl... i'd be up for some more of that....i'd pretty much drink anything.. its eating food where i get fussy... no vit loan, no dog
