Craftworks Seoul logo myeongdongA while back on a free Saturday evening we visited the Craftworks Taphouse in the Eulijiro area of downtown Seoul. It’s a pretty popular and well known outlet due to it’s wide range of quality craft beers. Here are our thoughts on Craftworks Taphouse;

Thoughts: Firstly the main reason for coming here the beers; we started with the sampler set which included 7 different beers (for 11,000). Some of course better than others (in our opinion), and so we then moved on to having a pint of Geumgang Mountain Dark Ale and Jirisan Moon Bear IPA. Both very enjoyable and cost between 7,500-8,000 each.
Secondly the food, we had a party patter of chicken, french fries and chips. It matched the beers nicely and hit the spot.
Finally the location is nice if a little hidden as it’s in a mall basement. The staff spoke excellent English, provided great service and were very friendly.

If you’re looking for a wide range of quality Korean Craft Beers as well as some western style finger food Craftworks Taphouse is well worth visiting. It’s maybe not the place for drinking large amounts or dining on a budget.
