Carl Cross left Upslope Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado, because he wanted to put his mark on Ho Chí Minh City’s nascent craft beer scene. And so Pasteur Street Brewing Company was born and the world became a better place because of it. Rather than rely on the European styles that dominate the Vietnamese market, Cross incorporates Southeast Asian ingredients like jackfruit, oolong, pandan leaf, and passionfruit into his small-batch stouts, IPAs, and saisons. The best way to sample his freshest brews is to order a six-pour flight in the tasting room. Love that fruity Jasmine IPA or the Spice Island Saigon Saison, a dry farmhouse ale with hints of lemongrass and black pepper? 500mL growlers start at 148,500 dong, or a little over $6 USD.
