HA NOI (VNS) — The Ministry of Industry and Trade announced in a draft decree that bars and street shops had to serve beer at a temperature of less than 30 degrees Celsius, a move meant to improve Viet Nam's food safety standards.
The draft decree said that beer shops had to install ventilation or air-conditioning systems to ensure beer was served cold enough.
The decision has sparked public debate, because many beer lovers enjoy drinking bia hoi (fresh beer) out in the open air.
What do you think? Do you support regulating the temperature of beer? How is beer served at restaurants or bars in your countries? What should authorised agencies do to make sure beer shops obey the rules?
