    Join here to get 4 free cans of MixTape Brewery Partea Hard Seltzer.

    Seven Million Bikes podcasts couldn't happen without the support of our community. I wanna give a massive thank you to our existing Patreon members, Zion Johnson, Brandon Thompson, Dan Jones, Andrew Barry, Carey Hughes Parey, Pippa Claire, Tracy Wright, Alistair Chapman, Brandon Thompson, and our newest member, Tien Cung.

    To say thank you to all of our members. We're having a special pool party here at my new apartment, and thanks to my friends at Mix Tape Brewery, we'll be enjoying the new green tea based hard seltzer, perfect for an afternoon of drinking by the pool.

    As you probably know, I'm a massive craft beer fan. MixTape Drinks is a relative newcomer on the growing craft beer scene here in Vietnam starting in 2020 by my friend Chad Mitchell and Taipei based Shawn Kidd.

    You'll often see me and a out in Saigon drinking their delicious peaches and cream ipa, or a refreshing California Sun Juicy Pale Ale. And if you're in the mood for something a bit heavier and darker, their Molly Milk Stout is delicious. I was pretty disappointed when I found out though, that it didn't actually include Molly.

    Through craft beer MixTape drinks is becoming part of the Vietnam community through local music, art, Food, and now podcasts. If you'd like to be part of the Seven Million Bikes community and support our podcast, then Mix Tape is giving away four free cans to the next three new community members that's worth 280,000 dong or 11 US dollars.

    To get your free cans, you have to be in HoChi Min City and join the We Mic Plan or above.  You can still support us wherever you are in the world. And when you do, next time you're in Saigon, the drinks are on me as a community member. You'll also get episodes before anyone else invites the special events like our pool party and bonus content that no one else will ever see or hear.

    And I'll also give you a special shout out on future. Join here. Thank you so much to everyone for listening and helping us pass 40,000 downloads recently and everyone who supports us,  including Mix Tape, Brewery.

Funny and insightful

I love how the host is bringing fun to the conversations and still bring so much insights from the guests.

Also can we talk about the intro music? 😂 I love the street food vendor w/ beats.

Cool podcasts about Saigon with great theme tune and awesome content.

Listen to these podcasts if you would like to visit Saigon or even if you’re already here to see how people see Saigon through their eyes and feel Saigon through their hearts.
