Magpie Brewing Co.

Jul 3, 2019

Pizza-and-beer pioneer Magpie helped make craft beer a thing in South Korea with its pale ale, an easy-drinking brew with hints of apricot that seven years on is still its most popular. Now, Magpie is throwing beer geeks a bone. Look out for imperial stout Black Rock when it comes at the end of summer. “Pastry stouts are super popular globally,” says co-owner Erik Moynihan, “but we wanted to do one that was a little bit more Korean, so we based it on the chocolatey, marshmallowy flavor of the Lotte Choco Pie.”

Where to try it: Magpie has bars in Itaewon and Hongdae in Seoul, as well as two venues in Jeju. The beer should hit Hong Kong’s shores this year. magpiebrewing.com.
