It is the 19th year in a row Vietnam has set up a pavilion in the “longest beer garden in the world” recognised by the Guinness World Records.

The 2.2-km garden stretches along the Karl Marx Allee, the largest boulevard in Berlin, offering about 2,400 kinds of beer from 320 breweries from all over the globe.

This year, Vietnam has brought to the festival the country’s popular brands, including Saigon, Ha Noi and Truc Bach, alongside the country’s culinary specialties and craft products. Vietnamese dances and music are also introduced to locals.
