Back home I’ll often see signs that say “pizza and beer” – a terrific combination without a doubt. Seoul seems to have a different take on this combination, pairing beer with a number of different things, like…
Coffee and Beer
Surly was on to something when they created their Coffee Bender beer, but who knew they got the idea from Korea? I’ll tell you who -
Johannes Brahms (and Beer)
While this classical German pianist is often associated with Bach and Beethoven, he was also known to toss back a few cold Biers in the day. This duo cannot be stopped, except maybe by…
Robots and Beer
Robots of this type are usually associated with Japan, but the Koreans aren’t ones to play second fiddle when it comes to creating awesome technology. At least over here they associate them with beer (or at least what I’m calling beer – the sign was hanging up at a bar). Maybe our future overlords will be cool to hang out with at a bar?
As you can see, Koreans have all sorts of ideas when it comes to combining awesomeness with beer. Some are better than others, and maybe they don’t top the classic pizza and beer, but it’s definitely not due to a lack of trying!
That’s it for Seoul. We are on our way to the airport to catch our flight to Sydney. Check back later for my next post, where I will be talking about combining koalas with Fosters (that’s Australian for beer), and other lame attempts at humor.
