Being close to Hongdae, Sinchon and Yeonnam, the Yeonhui area is quite versatile in terms of planning a night out. If you want to just stay in the area, there are also several interesting spots to check out. Dog and Pig Craft Beer Pub is one of them, with a sizable house beer menu and a contender for cutest logo in Seoul.
The beer menu at Dog and Pig doesn’t name any breweries, leading us to believe they are all house beers, which also matches the price level. All the names and descriptions are in Korean, but they are also supplied with pictures showing the color and glassware. Among their nine beers on tap we find all the normal craft beer styles, IPAs, pale ales, stouts, as well as some lagers and weizens.
Overall the beers are up to our expectations, the IPA is bitter and fruity and the lagers are malty, with no big surprises one way or the other. We are of course lucky to feel that way, as just 5-6 years ago finding this kind of beer menu would be unthinkable at this price, and the competition in Seoul is getting stiffer by the hour. The food menu covers everything from meals to fingerfood, Korean, Italian and fusion style, so it was easy going here with a big group.
Interior wise Dog and Pig is, similar to many places in Seoul, a healthy mix of new and old. The ceiling structure appears to be original, reinforced with more modern steel and concrete, while the interior has been touched up with concrete, tiles and simple white walls. The three (!) flat screens behind the counter, as well as the many rustic chic tables and ornaments, do bring the whole place a bit closer to a standard Korean bar, but that is being very picky.
