Established in 1933, Sinpyeong Brewery is the city’s only dedicated traditional brewery and is run by Kim Dong-gyo and his father, Kim Yong-se, a designated Korean liquor brewing grandmaster. As a family business spanning three generations, the brewery uses high-quality rice produced on the fertile granary as the key ingredient for their rice wine. Visitors to Sinpyeong Brewery can get a hands-on brewing experience for parties of 15 people or more. This tour includes brewing rice wine, a makgeolli sommelier course, making distilled water, making a pancake with yeast, and more.
