Epicourageous is now Seoul Eats

My partner in culinary crime, Daniel, has changed his site from Epicourageous in Seoul to Seoul Eats. It looks like it’s going to concentrate more on food events and actual places to eat in Seoul, an area that I woefully come short on (considering I live slightly outside Seoul).

  1. I’ve been noticing a lot of new imported beers showing up in the convenience stores lately. My curreent favorite is the 2,000 won cans of Tiger beer from Singapore carried by Buy the Way. Blows all Korean beer away in my opinion!

  2. hite stout might be stronger than guinness draft, but it is about the same as guinness original and less than guinness extra stout.

    that line about hite prime max “being good with food” is ripped straight from commercials. i’d say it’s no better or worse with food than the rest of the swill.

  3. I’ve said before that I do like Hite Prime Max. It reminds me of the beers I had when I lived in Germany. It’s not the best, but it’s not bad at all. It’s a hell of a lot better than Bud, Coors, and Nat Light. Yet the people who dis Korean beers do so while praising Bud and the other dull mass mass produced American beers.

    Give Korea some time. Beer is not one of their traditions. And considering how Japanese breweries are now winning international competitions, it’s only a matter of time before it spreads to Korea. I think it’s an exciting time to be in a country where they’re trying to re-invent their beers every few months.

    When was the last time Budweiser came out with a new product?

  4. I got to be honest, only one beer with 100% barley is pathetic. In fact, calling the rest beer seems like a blatant lie. Perhaps “Bland Chemically Created Hangover Inducer” would be more appropriate

  5. Korean mass produced beer is terrible, but not much worse than Canadian or American macros. The sad thing is there are good microbrewers dotted around the country, but they are not allowed to sell their beer in bottles. We’re getting robbed by the big breweries monopolizing because of bottling laws.

  6. As an above-poster said, mass-produced Korean beer isn’t much better or worse than the fishwater in other countries, but still, I never imagined that anyone could break down the local brews with an analysis like this. Stout, Hite Prime Max, and the Cass Red are, for better or worse, the only ones that really stand out from the pack and I daresay wouldn’t fare too well in a blind taste test of the others.
