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.

Drink Much?

An article here from Euromonitor proclaims South Koreans the world’s heaviest drinkers, nearly doubling the amount of hard liquor Russians consume weekly.  Having lived here, I totally believe it.  Drinking,especially after work drinks with the boss and colleagues, is super-common here, and there is almost no stigma attached to public drunken behavior.  Last week, we rode the bus home next to two twenty-something women who were already pretty pickled–at nine o’clock at night. I don’t know how they had even been off  work long enough to get drunk, but they had managed somehow.  


St Patrick’s Day in Seoul, 2013

If you haven’t heard already, I’m chairman of the Irish Association of Korea, and every year around this time we organise a small get together. You might have heard of it, we call it Saint Patrick’s Day.

I won’t blether on too much about it as my brain is exhausted at the simplest mention of the event, however give this link a click and you’ll find all the info you need about the event.
