Another History of Beer in Korea

Here we go again with the “Korean beer sucks” comments from folks who think that long-neck Buds are fine drinkin’. Hey, I’m posting this for historical curiosity. A year ago, the Joonang Daily came out with a piece detailing the history of Korean brewers. Professor Andrei Lankov of Kookmin University has written an article in The Korea Times about the early days of beer in Korea from an oddity in a bottle at a diplomatic ceremony to the birth of hofs and its golden celebrity status to its current decline in “well-being” culture.
