Forget about having that cold beer outside - Proposed new Vietnamese law

Vietnam plans rule to keep temperature in beer parlours below 30C | World news | The Guardian:

"A Vietnamese government official is proposing that the temperature in restaurants selling beer should not exceed 30C (86F), a rule that will be hard to enforce considering outdoor beer parlours are hugely popular in the country’s big cities. 
The Tuoi Tre newspaper quoted Nguyen Phu Cuong, an official at the ministry of industry and trade which was drafting the regulation, as saying the rule aimed to “protect consumers”. 
Many drinkers, however, say the proposal shows how out of touch officials are because of the popularity of the outdoor bars."
