Re: Galmegi Brewing Company - Busan's First Craft Beer Pub

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed everything Galmegi had to offer and am more than happy to head back for their Fall Brewfest this weekend. If you're here on the South side of the country I cannot recommend them highly enough. Much like Craftworks in the North, they're a very welcome oasis in the beer desert. However, Galmegi is much more experimental with what they're brewing and have strayed quite far from the ol standbys you'll get from the bigger Korean microbrew. This is absolutely no knock on Craftworks, more of a comment on how innovative the brews are at Galmegi.


Here's a full review of their Summer Brewfest.
