Beer on ice is delicious and refreshing, in certain circumstances, with certain beers.

Trashy? Sacrilegious? Don’t be that way. Surely you’ve enjoyed a Michelada once or twice. Even the French have been known put ice in their bubbly.

In Vietnam, where there’s a plethora of regional lager-style beers and green plastic kegs of locally produced, fresh, unpasteurized bia hoi sit on every Hanoi street corner, you’ll rarely see anyone drinking it without a few chunks of ice.
