Vietnam Flashback

When I was in Singapore and Vietnam about a year and a half ago, I shot a silly little video for on the burgeoning beer scenes in the two countries. OK, burgeoning is accurate for Singapore. For Vietnam, I’d call it embryonic. (And they still put ice in their beer. It’ll probably take a couple of generations before the locals stop doing that. Old habits don’t just die hard there. They die extremely slowly.)

I can’t embed it here, I can only link it. It wouldn’t be too pleasant if my place of employment sued me copyright infringement.

Enjoy…It won’t win any awards or anything, especially since I had serious microphone issues—as you’ll soon hear—during the Singapore interview. But, at the very least, shooting the video made for a handy little tax deduction.

Watch the video…

About Jeff Cioletti

I’m Jeff Cioletti and The Drinkable Globe marries my two greatest passions: fine drink and travel. The search for the former usually drives the latter. I'm the author of The Drinkable Globe, Beer FAQ and The Year of Drinking Adventurously. I'm the former editor-in-chief of Beverage World magazine and a regular contributor to publications such as SevenFifty Daily, Beverage Media, Artisan Spirit, Draft Magazine, FSR, All About Beer Magazine and BevNet. I’ve been interviewed on beverage-related topics for CNN, Fox Business News, CNBC, Beer Sessions Radio, Canada's ROB TV, NPR, BBC World, BBC Radio, The Associated Press, The New York Post, Financial Times, Investors Business Daily, Advertising Age, WCBS-TV and several other media outlets. Beyond the journalism gig, I’m also a filmmaker; I wrote, produced and co-directed the feature film, “Beerituality,” a comedy set in the world of craft beer. The film is available on at and can be streamed and downloaded at
