Sunday School: The Makings of Makgeolli

Makgeolli roughly translates to carelessly filtered thing. What is this alcohol that is neither wine, beer, nor sake? Join us for the Makings of Makgeolli on Friday, July 14th to learn more about the history behind Korean alcohols, the unique fermentation process and even make some yourselves to take home! With some understanding, this 'carelessly filtered' drink, can transform into something that can be appreciated and oh so delicious.

This Sunday School workshop will roughly be 1.5-2 hours with an educational discussion, tasting comparison, and brew sesh with Alice Jun, founder and brewer of Hana Makgeolli. Be prepared to get a little boozey and get your hands dirty.

Happy Family Night Market: The Case for Makgeolli (and Other Products We Consider Our Own)

Hana Makgeolli plans to be the first artisanal Korean rice alcohol producer in the U.S. – but why Hana? Why makgeolli? And why now?

Asian food and beverage products in the U.S. have been long been manufactured using cheap ingredients and industrial manufacturing processes. Both imported and domestically-made products have watered down flavors and techniques that once characterized traditionally made food and drinks that originated in Asia. More recently, a new generation Asian-Americans are now reclaiming the foods they grew up with, establishing new business, and competing with mass-produced brands by using higher quality ingredients and traditional production methods. Join Alice Jun, founder and brewer of Hana Makgeolli, to learn about Korean alcohols, their future in the U.S. market, and how authenticity can be redefined in the making of a carefully crafted product. The workshop will include a tasting comparison between Hana Makgeolli and commonly found brands of makgeolli.
