An overview of the Saigon beer brand

Before delving into the alcohol content of Saigon beer, let’s briefly go over some highlights of the SAIGON beer brand.

Saigon Beer is a leading beer brand in Vietnam, produced by the Saigon Alcohol – Beer – Beverage Corporation (SABECO). The brand was established in 1875 by Mr. Victor Larue, a Frenchman living in Saigon.

SABECO’s headquarters is in Ho Chi Minh City

SABECO has a long history and a strong connection with the people of Vietnam. Its products are an essential part of daily life in Vietnam, from cozy family gatherings to fun times with friends. In addition, Saigon beer is widely distributed across the country and exported to many countries worldwide. This beer line has been recognized as a national brand and is the 351st member of the Berlin Beer Association, one of the most reputable beer organizations in the world.

What are the ingredients in Saigon beer?

Saigon beer with its rich taste and characteristic golden color is a result of carefully selected ingredients, including:

  • Barley malt: This is the main component that gives the beer its flavor. Barley malt is made from barley grains and then fermented and aged for a certain period.
  • Grains: Supplementary ingredients that add thickness and flavor to the beer. Grains commonly used in Saigon beer include corn, rice, and black malt.
  • Hops: This component adds bitterness and aroma to the beer. Hops are harvested from hop plants, dried, and ground into powder.
  • Water: Comprising around 90% of the beer’s composition, the water used must be clean, have suitable mineral content, and be free from impurities to create a delicious flavor.
