Once a makgeolli (rice wine) factory, the elegantly redesigned Budnamu Brewery now offers its own signature craft beers that incorporate Gangneung’s local characteristics. Even the names are unique as to set each beer apart from the rest. Budnamu Brewery’s signature drink Minori Session derives its name from a region in Gangneung known to cultivate rice. Other drinks such as Zeumeu Blanc and Haslla IPA also have a special tie with Gangneung with Zeumeu meaning “A village where the sun sets,” whereas Haslla was Gangneung’s old name, meaning “a vast ocean.” Likewise, many of the beer names crafted at Budnamu Brewery are connected to the local region, offering visitors an opportunity to learn interesting facts about Gangneung as they enjoy exquisite beer.
Newcomers to Budnamu Brewery are recommended to try out Budnamu Sampler as the menu consists of the brewery’s four
signature beers – Minori Session, Zeumeu Blanc, Pine City Pale Ale, and Ojuck Stout. Minori Session is characterized by a refreshing mandarin-scented aftertaste and Zeumeu Blanc by its smooth flavor followed by a hint of chrysanthemum and Chinese pepper, a wheat beer preferred by women. On the other hand, Pine City Pale Ale offers a bitter but refreshing taste, while the dark Ojuck Stout is bold in both flavor and alcohol content. Budnamu Brewery offers several side menus to go with the beer, but we recommend Budnamu Platter for a taste of the various choices, including cheese, nachos, olives, croquette, and chili.
