After seeing a few interesting posts on Instagram of a Frozen almost ice cream looking draft beer we though is was worth while trying for ourselves. The beer is sold at a Japanese Restaurant in Cheongna, Incheon called Izakaya (이자카야 청라), as well as other places. I may not be a very wintry thing however beer is enjoyable year round. Here is some more information and brief thoughts;
Thoughts: Starting with the drinks, a single iced / Frozen Kirin beer costs ₩8000 which is a little more than a regular draft Kirin and double the cost of a Korean Draft Beer. Which makes this more of a special occasion. It stayed cold the whole time and didn’t go flat. They do also carry a range of cheaper Korean Beer and Soju for those just looking for a fun night out. Plus a selection of Sake. Secondly the food, we had Tempura seafood platter and it was very enjoyable. Plenty for 2 people but not to much so have room for either more food or more likely dessert. Finally the restaurant as a whole has a clean Japanese theme and can go either sit on the floor or on chairs. The staff were attentive and friendly.
Overall Izakaya is a nice place to visit on a special day, a birthday, leaving meal or even on a date. Plus the Frozen Beer is well worth trying out.
