Adventures in brewing

Great Korean Beer Festival – May 2017

Last week, Galmegi Brewing Co attended the Great Korean Beer Festival at COEX in Seoul. The festival went off very successfully but damn it was a long one, 10 days of 1-10pm beer slinging. Luckily, I wasn’t working the festival for the entire 10 days (I did 5 and that was plenty long enough) since I had to keep up with production back at the brewery. I’m glad I wasn’t at the festival for the entire span because between the Great Korean Beer Festival, Good Beer Week Seoul, and our new franchise branch opening in the Pusan National University district in Busan our stock got decimated. Also we were really popular at GKBF so we had faster than expected beer sales. Not a bad thing to have happen, just means figuring out how to produce more beer than I can possibly produce to catch back up. Fun, fun, fun!

Here’s the promo video for this years GKBF. Has a couple of moments of me talking during Meet the Brewer.

Why do I have this blog

Hey netizens and beer nerds,

I’m starting this blog to have some kind of journal, diary, record, or what have you about something that consumes a lot of my life, brewing. I’m brewer in Busan, South Korea which in itself might be interesting to some, but that is necessarily the whole point to this blog…although I’m sure it will come to dominate a vast amount of future posts. I’ll be writing about things I’m working on, things I learn, and perhaps days when things go absolutely wrong (I’ll cross my fingers that this doesn’t happen too often). Hopefully something that I word vomit into a post will prove useful or interesting for you.
