Free Makgeolli Making Class at Asan Folk Festival!!

Printer-friendly version

It’s here again!  Last year we teamed up with Susubori Academy to host free makgeolli making classes at the Asan Folk Village as part of their annual festival.  It was a truly excellent time, and we had so much fun brewing makgeolli in the outdoors and enjoying each other’s company.  And this year it’s happening again!

Susubori Academy is offering two classes, one on Saturday and one on Sunday, with limited spaces for both.  The classes will be taught in English by our resident expat brewing experts, Becca Baldwin and Dan Lenaghan.  The class on Saturday also includes an overnight stay with the MMPK/Susubori team in our own Hanok, for just 10,000won each!  Here are some details about what’s going on.


Where:  The Asan Folk Village, which is about a 20 minute taxi from Asan Station.

When:  The weekend of October 18th-20th.
