Andrew Salmon's take on beer in Korea

5645246061 dd14bc08de Andrew Salmon's take on beer in Korea

Not to be outdone, legendary Korea pundit and one-time ZenKimchi contributor Andrew Salmon has a thing or two to say about Korea’s flaccid beer duopoly (flaccid in the taste, not the power).

If the government lowered the ceiling on beer production, it could release a wave of entrepreneurial Korean microbrewers. Might we see kimchi-flavored pilsners, chili-flavored wheat beers, burnt sesame-infused stouts, or crisp pale ales made with Korean mountain water? Such libation would respectfully complement Korea’s powerfully tasty cuisine.

Be ready to be entertained as you read the whole thing in The Korea Times.
