During the past couple of years here in South Korea there has been a growing trend of small pubs / bars which focus more on snacks and small meals as well as drinking beer. Often known as cream beer or draft beer bars they are popping up in most Korean cities and one we personally like a lot is “I’m Beer” (also known as 5 Block Pub) located in the Cheongna area of Incheon.
It’s a simple place with both inside and outside seating and a small food and drinks menu. The beer is cheap at only ₩2,500 for a draft beer and they also have a selection of flavorings for the beer which is interesting if you’re not a big beer drinker. The food is cooked in an open style kitchen behind the bar and the specialties are their pork burgers. Once again they are reasonably priced and cost between ₩3,500 (plain) and ₩4,900 (full). They also have a few other things on the menu such french fries and breaded shrimp.
I’m Beer is a nice place to relax and enjoy a beer with friends or on a date, the food is enjoyable too. It can get a little busy on the weekends and during the summer months. Directions and pictures are below.
