Upcoming Busan Sand Festival

 

 

BUSAN SAND FESTIVAL 2015

This weekend (29th May) sees the start of the Busan Sand Festival at Haeundae beach. The theme for this years festival is children’s stories (fairy tales) and there are some really excellent sculptures to greet the visitors.

For the last week I strolled along the beach to chat to the artists and see the progress they are making.

The first note, is that they are all professional sculptors and travel the world producing their art for all to see.

The sculptors come from Holland, Mexico, Korea, Italy, USA and Canada. To many of us, and I was one until this week, it just seemed that carving shapes in the sand was all that there was to this art form, but how wrong could we be! – I cannot even get a kiddies bucket of sand to stand up.

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.


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:


Muldwinda: Menu

 

Who Is Muldwinda?

Muldwinda is arguably the best makgeolli bar in all of Seoul.  They run in close partnership with Susubori Academy, which is the premier school for traditional alcohol brewing education.  Their knowledge of craft makgeolli and their commitment to nurturing the development of makgeolli culture is unparalleled, and you will be hard pressed to find a more relaxed and satisfying evening than at this bar.   It has a laid back & calming atmosphere, and their food reflects the same quality as their makgeolli.

Yangsan Sabryang Culture Festival – 양산삽량문화축제

You never go long without going to a festival in Korea, but it seems like during the Spring and Fall there are festivals going on every single weekend! This weekend was no exception, but this time it was in our own backyard! This weekend was the Yangsan festival, and although we had not originally planned on going, I’m so glad we did!
