Some people say we make the best craft beer in Saigon, Vietnam. Enter the Darkness and decide for yourself...
Heart of Darkness is all about duality. Good and evil. Sane and insane. Big, bold, crafted brews that will challenge the way you think about beer. Thirst quenching, session beers that will have you bouncing off the walls. Hop bombs that will give you a kick-to-the-teeth, while still being still balanced and smashable.
This beer adds Buffalo Horn chillies ("Ớt Sừng Trâu" in Vietnamese) - a Vietnamese breed of chilli to our Futile Purpose Cucumber Pilsner. Distinct cucumber on the nose with aromatic chili and a touch of honey. Cooling cucumber and sweet malt in the mouth give way to a gentle bitterness and a short burst of spicy heat.

HEART OF DARKNESS' STORY
The story begins during Founder & CEO John Pemberton’s time living in New York City during the 2000’s where he fell in love with the American craft beer scene and its never-ending pursuit of quality and innovation.

Fast forward ten years and that love materialized when Heart of Darkness was founded in 2016 by a group of friends living in Saigon with the goal of becoming Asia’s premium craft beer brand.
Reflecting those inspirations, Heart of Darkness produces over 100 new beers a year and has collected numerous medals in competitions around the Pacific rim.

WHY "HEART OF DARKNESS"?
The novel Heart of Darkness was written in 1899 by Joseph Conrad and was John’s favorite book as he grew up in England.
The book is about the spirit of exploration, the desire of quenching ambitions, which has always fueled humanity’s journey into the dark unknown. This is the prime inspiration behind the naming the company, Heart of Darkness.
