Presenting…느린마을 양조장 Baesangmyun Brewery!!!!
Since I am such a huge fan of makeoli, of course I had to find a fresh brewery in town!
Makeoli is one of the traditional Korean alcohol made from rice. It’s best served with pajeon 파전 or bindaedduk 빈대떡.
This place is a brewery slash restaurant slash gift shop. 3 in 1! What more can I ask for? :)
The brewing happens behind a glass wall so you can actually see what’s going on. oh and look, how nice of them to put procedures in both english and korean!
That container they were pouring was for us.
This place is usually packed at night time. I came here twice, once in the late afternoon 5ish pm and once after dinner around 10pm. There was no one in the late afternoon and we practically had the whole place to ourselves. I find a lot of people like to come here for dinner.
The restaurant had a cozy feeling since most of the interior was made from wood and had a contemporary higher-class feel, not like your typical makeoli hang out places.
Yeah, looks like milk… but believe me, this tastes so delish! It was so fresh and smoooooooooooooth. After drinking this, I had higher expectations for makeoli.
It wasn’t too badly priced… I think this was only 6000 won.
Some of the side dishes we ordered with the drinks.
I’ve also tried their pajeon and it’s not bad!
Gotta remember your drinking etiquettes in Korea!!!!!!
And of course, there has to be a nice little gift shop on the side to attract tourists and customers. The makeoli we bought was so cheap.. I think 2500 a bottle. But mind you, it’s only fresh if you drink it the day of. They actually poor it in the bottles that day, but the tastes still feels not as fresh as what we got in the store.
I try to buy this brand (soolsool) of Makeoli in supermarkets and it always tastes better than the other kinds.
