July 5th Meeting Registration OPEN!!!

 

Time flies when you’re drinking makgeolli, and it’s already time for our next meeting! This meeting will be a little different from our regular meetings, as the location is quite small and features a round bar.  It’s a very intimate location and we could potentially be the only customers at the time, so we will be keeping numbers strictly small for this road test.


ZenKimchi Foodcast – Makgeolli, Korea’s Fizzy Brew

 

We are still playing catch-up here at MMPK headquarters, with a lot of new and exciting things in production.  A while back in May, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Joe McPherson, of ZenKimchi fame, for an episode of his Foodcast.  Of course the topic of the conversation was our beloved makgeolli, and despite chewing each other’s ears off for a good 40 minutes or so, I’m sure we could have gone on for much longer!  Every time I get chatting about makgeolli, Korean traditional liquor and the future of the industry, I realise just how much there is to know and how much more we have to learn.


Bärenjäger: A Shot of Summer

Summer in Seoul. 'Tis the season for afternoons spent poolside, road trips to Busan and rooftop parties. While some will be reaching for Cass and soju mixers to stock their social gatherings, other expats will be happy to know that there's a new liqueur on the Seoul spirits scene that is perfect for cooling down (and getting tipsy) during the hottest time of the year.

Intro to Brewing Makgeolli Class April 19th!

Spring is in the air, and we have been in the Susubori lab brewing a lot recently.  There’s nothing better than having a cold, fresh batch of homemade makgeolli in the fridge to enjoy on a warm spring evening.  So it’s time to have another Intro to Brewing Makgeolli class to share the knowledge on how to make you own springtime brew!  As ever the class will be taught by our expat makgeolli experts Becca Baldwin and Dan Lenaghan, and you will be able to take  home your very own batch of makgeolli.   Here are the details:

Registration for March 22nd Meeting OPEN!!

We are not usually big fans of the flavored makgeolli out there, but it might just be because we haven’t found the right one!  Our next location has been featured on the popular Korean food TV show ‘Tasty Road’, and it is very well known for its blueberry makgeolli.  From the looks of the pictures, they are doing something special as it is very thick and frothy.  We expect the makgeolli to be on the sweeter, fruiter side of the palate this time around.
