Just a few years ago, craft beer-barren Seoul gave birth to its first microbreweries and already, it’s no longer anybody’s baby. Quite different from average, mass produced Korean beer, these aromatic and flavorful beverages help to step up the country’s alcohol game. In fact, the third run of the Great Korean Beer Festival is testament to it. Your one day ticket allows you entrance to the festival and 10 cash coupons. 1 cash coupon can score you a 90ml cup of beer so with craft beer prices normally around 7,000 won, beer here’s quite the steal if you budget your coupons well enough. The festival will spotlight over 130 craft beers and food pairings. As for the dress code, don’t forget to whip out the crop tops and neon colors because this will be an ‘80s and ‘90s themed affair. Live concerts, b-boy performances and stencil tattooing add some dimension to the drinking while pictures of Great Korean Beer Festivals past promise a totally rad time with big cheesin’, choice beer and warm nights. Leave your actual babies at home though, because this event is 19+.
(Sat 30-Sun 31; Museum Café at The War Memorial of Korea, 29 Itaewon-ro, Yongsan-gu, Seoul. 30,000 won Advance Ticket. 50,000 won Door)
