Although Cass, Hite, and OB do try, sometimes you just need another option. Homeplus and E-Mart have stepped up their beer game, but they are still limited. If you are in or near Hongdae and need to make a beer run, head to Beer Super.
It is a 'mom-and-pop-shop' establishment, and OH MAMA!, do they have selection! American, Canadian, Belgium, German, Japanese, Thai...the list goes on.
They have ales, IPAs, pilsners, pumpkin spice, oatmeal stouts, etc. Whatever you can think of, they probably carry.
The pricing varies. Some bottles can be quite expensive, while others are quite reasonable. Don't try negotiating with the. What you see is what you get.
The great thing about Beer Super is its location. It is about a five minute walk from Hongdae Station.
So, if you are heading over to Hongdae Park or finishing up playing basketball at Yonsei University, head over to Beer Super and enjoy the selection.
How To Get There
From Hongdae Station (Line 2), walk out of exit 2 and go straight for 20 meters. Take your first left.
Walk straight for 110 meters. Take a right.
After walking straight for about 200 meters, Beer Super will appear on your right.
