Tap Houses in Busan
The original article (and the entire issue) can be read online at the following link and in HAPS Magazine (available at many fine watering holes throughout Busan right now).
But, since this is a growing industry in Busan specifically, and Korea broadly, there are no doubt even more places where Korean-brewed craft beer is now available. Just the other day, I popped into The Wolfhound in Haeundae. Sure enough, they have some on tap. And HQ has been pouring a few suds from up in Seoul.
Where else can people get a Korean-brewed beer that’s not the standard fare everyone usually pops open to accompany samgyupsal? Do you know of any other Korean craft beer-specific tap houses that have opened up recently in Busan that you want to give a shout out? Let me know in the comments! Also, if you’ve been to any of the places highlighted in the HAPS article, be sure to share your opinion!
