Makgeolli Festival 2012 – World Cup Stadium

:

A while back when the weather was not so frigid, we ventured out to check out the Makgeolli Festival at World Cup Stadium. Not having much in the way of expectations before going, we were absolutely blown away apon arrival. Stall after stall….after stall of delicious makgeollis from all over the country awaited us. Overwhelmed by the choice, we started at tent one and slowly made our way along the line, accepting free tastings from every tent in the glorious fall sunshine.

Now, we have tried our fair share of different kinds of makgeolli, but after this festival it is safe to say we have barely tasted the tip of the kettle when it comes to variety. From corn, to deodeok, to tomato, to blackbean…we were in makgeolli tasting heaven. The best thing about the festival, other than the beautiful weather and endless tastings, was that we had the opportunity to buy bottles of the makgeolli we loved and are not usually carried at your local shop.
