The days of âcrap’ beer are officially over in Busan. When craft beer entered the city’s drinking scene just a few short years ago, many connoisseurs of the suds breathed a sigh of joy. While some may call it a fad, others deem it an absolute life passion. Yoon Sang-jin, proprietor of 6 Pack Bottle Shop, is one of those people.
The newest addition to the craft beer scene in Busan, 6 Pack, as it is commonly referred, brings an amazing selection of over 170 craft bottled beers from around the world to Busan and Ulsan in the first-of-its-kind store in the southern part of the peninsula.
With bottles ranging from just under 4,000 won to the high-end 91,000-won DeuS Cuvee Prestige 2012 from Belgium, 6 Pack stocks a variety of beers from Canada, the US, Europe, Japan and Australia. And they’re just getting started.
“Preparations are underway to import items only sold in Busan, says Yoon. We aim to lower prices and to offer unique brands of craft beer only available in the city, without having the added expense of going to Itaewon.
Yoon, who became a craft beer fanatic after drinking a Dogfish Head beer from Delaware when he was living in the United States, hopes to make customers select beers as carefully as they would wrestle between a cabernet or a merlot.
6 Pack is open daily from 2 to 11 p.m. in Namcheon-dong in Busan and Samsan-dong in Ulsan.
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind beer experience, this is the place to start.
