Why couldn't I get Saigon Beer cheap?
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:12:01 AM »
I just bought some Hite Korean beer from a Korean supermarket for $5.99/6PK.



When I went to A Vietnamese supermarket and tried to get Saigon beer, it's $8.99!  Why can't I get cheap Saigon beer?!  Wth man...do they want me to turn into a Kpop lover or something?  Maybe I just cut my hair like Dat.

Vietnam wants to be like Cuba.  Communist but export only premium luxury goods.

Saigon beer is not that good. 

It's got a rating of 1.99/5.

I thought Vietnamese beer should be cheaper.  Shouldn't they do some kind of dumping on the American market?   I don't know if there is a Vietnamese export tariff on the beer.

I don´t trust the rating.  Saigon beer is not high end for sure but it is a number 2.5-3 out of 5 for me.  There´s quite a bit of complexity to the flavors.  Most really good beers that I bought recently come from microbreweries in the states not from Europe.

Yeah, it’s fun to visit small local breweries. Eat lots of chicken wings. I can’t drink much alcohol anymore due to stomach ache. Maybe 1/2 bottle is all I can drink now.

Are you aware of any tummy issue you may have?

I dunno, I think it's some kind of inflammatory condition. Not a bad one like crohns or UC but some milder form I suspect.  I haven't been tested for any condition recently. A few years ago, got bx but it was negative. oh, yeah, I have endometriosis that's when I got the bx b/c they were concerned about other conditions in the bowel.

 Alcohol causes bloating and discomfort, soda including regular soda cause cramping and bloating, tea bloating and dizziness. The only things I can drink now is juice, coffee, and water, and herbal tea. I'm also sensitive to dairy.
