Registration for 28th February Meeting Open!!

We’ve got an unusual one for you this weekend Mamas & Papas!  For anyone that has been to one of our meetings, one of the regular makgeollis we order is Seong Myeong Sub.  It’s a dry, chalky brew that is aspartame free and has a lot of character behind not just the brew but also the brewer.


A new year is dawning…

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.


June 14th Meeting Registration Open!!!
