Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This house beer pub opened on July 12, 2002, as though it had been waiting for the moment of amendment in the nation’s Liquor Tax Law. Oktoberfest is the first establishment in Seoul to brew its own beer for sale. The news that a specialist with a Master’s degree from the brewing school at Munich University was big at the time. Self-made beer is more common nowadays, but back then, it was a sensation. This pub gained its fame via word of mouth through beer lovers and students from Germany. Four types of beer are available: Pilsner, Weiss, Dunkel, and Radler. A couple rules for Oktoberfest to present beer at its best: One is that a new beer must be drunk out of a new glass. Also, beer is not sold by the pitcher in order to prevent alterations in taste. The German side dishes that go well with German beer are also worth noting. Both the Schweinshaxe, referred to as the “German pork knuckle,” and the currywurst, a German-style sausage dish, are popular. So get your beers and settle in for a very German evening. Prost!
