Looking for Vietnamese beer

Specifically Bia Saigon, Biere Larue, or Tiger. Does anyone know of a liquor shop that might sell this anywhere in Manhattan, Queens or Brooklyn?

  1. I've seen tiger beer at asian bars like "apple bar and restaurant" on waverly. It's probably in some chinatown restaurants too, particularly the malaysian or singapore establishments.

    Lots of vietnamese restaurants in chinatown carry vietnamese beer. I've seen 33 export at most places, unsure about bia saigon or larue.

    Maybe you can ask the owner to such establishments where they get their beer.

    Those asian grocery stores may carry vietnamese beer as well.

    Anyway maybe you can give "new beer distributors" a call ? They have tons of exotic beer.

    1. re: randumbposter

      I've bought Tiger at the Hong Kong Supermarket in Flushing and at the Fairway on 125th St. I think Saigon grill used to serve '33'.

      I've never seen any of the other Vietnamese beers in stores or restaurants.

    2. Xe Lua Vietnamese Restaurant has it, they have all Saigon, 33, tiger beer and many other Asian beer as well.

        1. I thought Tiger was Singaporean.
