Khaung Ye

Khaung Ye (Chin Traditional Beer)

“Khaung Ye” is a kind of alcoholic beverage made locally in some parts of Myanmar, mostly among ethnic people. Made from millet seeds, almost every family grows millet seeds in their farms solely for the purpose of making this nectar. Taste is sweet, and a bit sour. Khaung Ye plays a very important role in Chin culture. As a welcome gesture, if we are offered a cup of Khaung Ye you shouldn’t refuse under any circumstance. You are considered a guest of honor thus refusal of the offer will be considered un-friendly.
