This Saturday, November 21st 2015 at 3pm, Maloney’s Pub and Grill will host an educational craft beer event and tasting in Kyungridan for beer lovers, foodies, homebrewers, and anyone interested in joining the booming beer industry. There will be four beers served with four different foods as well as talks, quizzes, prizes, and live music.
Bill Miller, the legendary beerfather and recipe master of Maloney’s Brewing Co will be discussing the beer industry. Bill has years of experience in the local homebrew scene and is also the designer of several Craftworks beers, The Booth’s first signature beer, and Maloney’s Combat Zone IPA and Southie Irish Red.
Kitae Park of Global Craft Korea can shed light on the import market of craft beer in Korea, as Global Craft Korea is responsible for many of the delicious American beers we have here including Modern Times, Green Flash, New Belgian, and–of course–Ballast Point.
Lastly, Brandan Fenner is the head brewer at Korea’s fantastic local brewery The Hand & Malt. He can shed light on his experience working at Maui Brewery in America and now the trend-setting Hand & Malt here. The Hand & Malt recently released Korea’s first beer made with locally grown hops and Korea’s first barrel-aged beer.
However, the main event for most will be the pairings of four different beers and dishes for tasting. According to the event page, the tastings are scheduled to be:
**Maloney’s Southie Irish Red Ale paired with salami & cheese
**Maloney’s Combat Zone India Pale Ale paired with spicy sliders
**New Belgian’s Fat Tire Amber Ale paired with salt, pepper and sesame oil wings
**New Belgian’s Snapshot Wheat Beer paired with smoked salmon canape
All beers will be 5oz tastings.
The event also promises to have some fun quizzes for prizes and live music by Mimi Roh.
Seating is limited to 30 participants. It will be 27,500won if you order in advance or 35,000won at the door.
