The winds of reform are blowing through the Vietnamese economy, buffeting even such pillars of state enterprise as the venerable Hanoi Brewery. Situated in an industrial suburb of the capital, the peeling beige factory is a relic of the colonial days, when beer was the exclusive preserve of French brew masters. The brewery was taken over by the communist regime in 1954, when the French left, and began a long slide into inefficiency.

By 5 p.m., with offices and factories emptying for the day, Bui Ngoc Vinh's beer garden is packed. Nearly all the 50 or so tables are full, peanut shells are starting to litter the cement floor, and the atmosphere is thick with cigarette smoke and congenial chatter. "It should be an early night," Vinh says, as waitresses scurry among the tables of mostly male drinkers, balancing trays of 13-cent beer and snacks of dried squid and fermented pork sausage known as nem chua.
