Entering from a small doorway, next to a clothing store, hidden away up a narrow set of steps on the 2nd floor, The Peachy Craft Beer Pub is a gem of a location only minutes away from Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem lake.
Peachy sports 16 x taps and a moderate bottle selection from mainly local, and South east Asian brewers (think Pasteur Street, Heart of Darkness, Furbrew, and China’s Master Gao). The staff are friendly, and knowledgeable, and English is not a problem.
As is typical with most of the heritage federation style terraces of the Old Quarter, the interior of Peachy consists of dark timbers beams and floors, red painted walls, blue deft tiles, and occasional asian art pieces. All making for an intimate, traditional setting.
There’s an outside balcony that’s festooned with colourful umbrellas. That’s the ideal spot to kick back, relax, and enjoy a frosty beverage, whilst the bustling Hàng Đào Street Night Markets throb below.
Hosting regular tap takeovers (we just missed out on the Heart of Darkness one), special beer launch events, and regular game nights, there’s always something going on at The Peachy.
Whilst there isn’t a food menu to choose from, take-aways from any of the number of street vendors below are welcome.
