You don’t have to look far to see drink for sale and being enjoyed here in South Korea. Both domestic and foreign brews are popular however generally people stick with the local stuff due to price. These days though that trend is starting to change as cheap imports enter the market. One example is a German Beer called “Bear Beer” from a company called Darguner Brauerei. It comes in 4 different varieties; Dark, Wheat, Lite Lager 4.2 and Premium Lager. Here are the key points that we noticed when trying Bear Beer;
- The price is the same as the normal local brews ₩1600 to ₩1800 for a 500ml can.
- It’s only available at Homeplus and Homeplus Express.
- Brewed by Darguner Brauerei.
- Imported from Germany.
- The Dark is 5.2% Alcoholic Content by Volume, Wheat and Premium are both 5% and finally the Lite Lager which is just 4.2%.
Overall, it’s main selling point is it’s price. It’s no better or worse than the domestic Korean beers, but does give you a little variety.
