Vietnamese beer along with traditional dishes and craft products have been on display at the 23rd International Berlin Beer Festival which began on August 2 in the capital of Germany.

The 2.2-km garden stretches along the Karl Marx Allee, the largest boulevard in Berlin, offering about 2,400 kinds of beer from 320 breweries from all over the globe.

This year, Vietnam has brought to the festival the country’s popular brands, including Saigon, Hanoi and Truc Bach, alongside the country’s culinary specialties and craft products. Vietnamese dances and music are also introduced to locals.

Addressing the Vietnamese pavilion’s opening ceremony, Nguyen Xuan Hung, Director of Asia Sky Tours who runs the Vietnamese pavilion, said he is proud that Vietnam’s booth has been among the most outstanding ones at the International Berlin Beer Festival for years.
