Makgeolli, also known as makkoli or makuly (takju) (and referred to in English as Dong Juice)

We had a great couple of glasses of this in NYC at last month. I cannot find it in Portland in any of our beer stores, nor H-mart.
Thanks in advance.

  1. Can you order on the Internet? Or try Uwajimaya?

      I found one place that will ship a $6 bottle for $23 in S&H. ;-)

      I imagine if H-mart does not have it, then Uwaji would not, but I will check when I am out there this week.


    2. I just saw makgeolli at H-Mart last week. I wouldn't have even noticed it, but my aunt pointed it out to me because she really likes it (I personally am not a big fan).

      If you stand with the refrigerated beer case behind you, it will be on those shelves to your right.

        Thank you! We found it. A friend I sent there could not find it, but now I see they have a variety.
