Deme Brewing, District 5

HO CHI MINH CITY | Deme Brewing is a Vietnamese microbrewery, hidden down an unassuming residential side street in District 5. The tiny space is hard to find, but it’s worth seeking out.

The brewery is fun and modern, inspired by Vietnamese street culture and street art. In fact, the taproom doubles as an art gallery, showcasing street art from local artists, including holding exhibitions.

They’ve only made a handful of beers so far – you’ll find their signature IPA ‘Ba Hoa’ on tap, along with whatever seasonal creation is new. ‘Ba Hoa’ means mumbling, talkative, or self-flattering in a fun way. It also means ‘3 Flowers’ in reference to the use of 3 kind of hops in that beer. It’s well worth a try.

In the fridge, you’ll find Deme’s own beers in bottles, along with a few other bottles and cans from other Vietnamese craft brewers. There’s no food on the menu, but you can order/bring in food from any number of the great restaurants and street food vendors in the area.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
