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 100new beers a year and has collected numerous medals in competitions around the Pacific rim.
Heart of Darkness brewery is located about 20km north of Saigon, Vietnam with a flagship gastropub in Saigon city center of District 1.Our product is available nationally in Vietnam serving an ever-growing number of accounts in North, Central and Southern regions.
In addition to Vietnam, Heart of Darkness is currently being distributed internationally in Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia, Taiwan, Hong Kong. May of 2019 marks our first international venue with the opening of Heart of Darkness Singapore.
