Let’s go on about imports! Imports stay with the man, imports don’t say goodbye to you… Not Belgium or the Czech Republic, but imports! Vietnamese Dai Viet beer from Huong Sen Brewery, part of the Huong Sen group. The Huong Sen group produces carbonated drinks, rice milk and of course beer.
I could not find any information on how big the Huong Sen brewery is, but judging by the photo it is not small. The level of the Russian regional. The assortment of beers is not very large and it seems that besides these four, there is also a red beer and some Dai Viet Super.
Dai Viet Silver (Vietnam, Thai Binh) – 4.5/11.6 Surprisingly, quite pleasant lager. I expected something “southern”, absolutely empty, but no. The aroma has a bit of apple, but it doesn’t spoil it. The taste is full, dry. In the aftertaste a little hop is even felt. Not a big deal, but clean and drinkable. Rated “C +”.
Dai Viet Lager (Vietnam, Thai Binh) – 4.7/12.1 Despite being a denser beer, the taste seemed more empty. Also a full malt body. Clean, but not much flavor or aftertaste. Rated “C”.
Dai Viet Pilsner (Vietnam, Thai Binh) – 5/11.5 Viet Pilsner sounds mysterious! However, it is indeed a pilsner. Not a Holiday, of course, but very nice. A little floral in flavor. The taste is soft and full. In the aftertaste, bread, flowers and a pleasant not intrusive, but noticeable hop. Good refreshing. This beer is ideal to drink on the beach. Rated “B”.
Dai Viet Black (Vietnam, Thai Binh) – 5.8/13.5 This is quite original. The aroma has a feeling that it contains rye malt, as the aroma has a leavened note and notes of bread. The taste is dry with a slight acidity. In the aftertaste burnt malt and bread crust. Rated “B-“.

After rumor after rumor, idea after idea – we finally have the news – Moeller Brew Barn bought Rivertown. The brewery that launched in Maria Stein back in 2015 has been on a meteoric growth over the last couple of years which makes this on one hand not surprising at all, but on another… incredibly shocking. Let’s talk.Rivertown
When Rivertown closed, or more accurately, in the many months leading up to their eventual closing back in February of this year, there were a ton of rumors about what that meant for the space. To be open, it got to the point where I had no idea what was real, and what was complete made-up nonsense anymore.
I heard it all. A massive west coast brewery was coming, a massive east coast brewery was coming – seltzer factories, Dayton brewery outposts… it all made sense somehow, and it made it really hard to follow the real story.
I don’t know what it is about Rivertown that fuels a fire like this. The nostalgia of what the brewery meant to a lot of us might be it. It could also be that the space in Monroe is a 25,875 square foot brewing facility that is designed to crank out a TON of beer. Whoever was going to move into it needed to have big plans for the future – and I should have guessed when someone told me it was a “semi-local” spot that Moeller Brew Barn was a possibility.About Moeller Brew Barn And Their Growth
Moeller Brew Barn opened up in Maria Stein back in 2015, as I mentioned earlier. Their original spot is fantastic. I’ve made a few stops there over the years and it’s 100% what you expect it to be. A big barn converted into a brewery in a small town in central Ohio.
In 2019 the brewery opened its second location – this one in Troy. They converted an old church into a taproom that started to show us a different side of their personality. The space might not be a “brew barn” but it is Moeller through and through. Repurposing a space, finding a home in a small town that has a dedicated group of craft beer drinkers, more than happy to find a barstool that made them feel good.
Then came, or will come, space three. This one is the one that really got me to start following these guys a lot closer. Dayton. Their currently under construction taproom in Dayton is going to be incredible. The taproom plans got slowed down by the pandemic, but it certainly didn’t stop these folks. They are working on a space that will be not just a great tourist spot (it’s right downtown by the baseball stadium… and don’t get me wrong, it’s designed to attract tourism) – but that once again finds a home in a small(ish) town and creates a taproom that local folks can rally behind and call their own.
This one? This new taproom is built to make beer.About The New Spot
When Rivertown was built, it was built to make a ton of beer – to spread it far and wide. It’s incredible to see Moeller Brew Barn moving into that and shines a big light on their plans for the future.
The new location will be a taproom too, don’t kid yourself. There will be more than 24 beers on tap at any given point (their beers) including stuff that if you’re a current fan of the brewery, you’ll be familiar with, as well as new stuff that is going to be brewed on-site.
They’re going to keep the kitchen up and running, featuring Neopolitan-style pizza, Smoked Wings, Pretzels, and a bunch of other great “drinking food” as I call it.
It’s easy to look at this and think that Moeller Brew Barn is crazy to jump into this – but the space when you really start to think about it makes a ton of sense for them. A new southern extension of the brewery is going to be great as they keep growing into the future – and a ‘Cincinnati’ spot that is also in a small town fits them like a glove.
I’m beyond thrilled to call them a Cincinnati Brewery, soon, and I hope that you are too… stay tuned. I’m gonna have more to say about them!

We are just a week and a half away from the grand return of the 2022 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival taking place in Paso Robles, CA on Saturday, June 4. Having built a reputation as one of the most celebrated festivals within the craft beer industry the FWIBF returns after a COVID-induced hiatus with another all-star cast of breweries.

As we reported, Modern Times Beer and Coffee Company of San Diego, California announced in February that it was closing four of its eight taprooms, including the taproom in Portland, Oregon. That began a period of uncertainty and speculation that culminated in April when Modern Times announced that a court-ordered receivership sale of the company was imminent. Today we learned that Maui Brewing Company made an offer.
“While this is just the first step in a long process, we believe in the Modern Times brand and feel it provides a tremendous opportunity for us,” Garrett Marrero, Maui Brewing co-founder and CEO, said in a press release. “They have an amazing, dedicated team and we hope to contribute to the next stage in their journey as a craft brewery.”
Maui Brewing’s bid to buy the company is an initial offer in the bankruptcy process. This kind of offer is often referred to as a “stalking-horse” bid. It marks a starting place for the auction of a company’s assets. Maui Brewing may increase its offer as the bidding ensues.
Brewbound reports that qualified overbids – those higher than Maui’s stalking horse bid – are due at 5:00 P. M. on June 3rd. Likely, an actual auction will take place on June 8th, with a hearing to confirm the winning bid later in the day in the Superior Court of Orange County.
Maui Brewing Company produced over 62,000 barrels of beer in 2021, a 55 percent increase over the previous year. In 2021, it ranked 44th on the Brewers Association’s list of top 50 craft breweries in terms of production. Southern California is Maui Brewing’s second-largest market. Maui Brewing’s top market is its home state of Hawaii.
