Beervana, Mullae-dong

Mullae-dong used to host a large variety of metal workshops, but the industrial area saw a sharp decline after production moved to lower cost countries. However, one man’s abandoned industrial area is another hipster’s treasure trove of unique and rustic venues for arts, crafts, cafes and of course craft beer. Beervana is three floors of vintage interior paired with modern craft beer from near and far, with a very attractive rooftop section.

We just can’t get enough of the Konglish play-on-words including beer (like Beertiful and Beer8), and Beervana actually works well in English too! After a long week slaving away in your dead-end office job, a cold craft beer does give you a taste of a blissful transcendence.

The tap list in Beervana has both local and imported beer, including a Beervana x Brew One Tropical Weiss collaboration. This hoppy and fruity weissen is a good fit for the late summer nights on the rooftop, a bit of tropical banana flavor blended with some hoppy bitterness. The menu has beers from Korea, England, Germany and the US, covering most of the common craft beer styles, from micro, medium and large breweries.

The view from the rooftop is stunning, showing the diversity of Seoul. You can see traditional tiled rooftops, old factory buildings, neon signs from new pubs and then modern high-rises in the distance. Pair that with this relatively quiet area, and you get the best of both worlds, as very little of the traditional city noise clutters the atmosphere.

Fake grass and a hammock are also on the rooftop.
