Best Pubs and Breweries in Haebangchon
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Seoul team
Koreans love beer. In fact Koreans love everything that includes alcohol. Seoul actually has a moderate number of good brew pubs that offer their own brewed beer on tap, as well as international selections of draft beers. We've handpicked a few of the local establishments, often run by expats or Koreans who have travelled abroad.
Most of the brew pubs in Seoul have traditionally been modeled after German style brauhauses with large hall seating areas serving Korean and German draft beer. You can find these brew pubs in basements of large hotels, near Gangnam station and spread out in downtown Seoul. Also in Itaewon and the backareas of Itaewon like Gyeongnidan and Haebangchon, you'll find a booming micro brewing culture started by expats.
