Although craft beer may not have always been one of Korea’s fortes, these days, domestic craft breweries are on the rise and aim to make their mark through unique flavors and packaging designs that stand out. Another key selling point are the fun names, like Jeju Wit Ale, Namsan, Gyeongbokgung, and Gwanghwamun. These products can be found at supermarkets and convenience stores throughout the country, making them easily accessible and great to enjoy after a long day of sightseeing. However, if you want to dive deeper into the world of Korean beer, sign up for a tour and tasting at one of the local breweries!
