Makgeolli (막걸리) is a raw, unfiltered, fermented alcohol made from rice and Korean nuruk (a type of yeast and enzyme starter). It is milky, sweet and effervescent due to the fermentation process. Traditionally, it was a beverage of the working class and small scale farmers. These days, it has gained renewed popularity as a healthier alternative to beer with a refreshing flavor.
If you want to party like an ancient rice farmer, you've come to the right place.
My partner and I have been making Makgeolli in our home since 2015. We are very excited and passionate about sharing traditional Korean alcohol with our friends in Austin!
This group meets once per month for now, and we'll rotate meetings at various BYOB establishments throughout Austin. If you have an idea for a new venue, please let us know. Any questions or comments can be sent to: email@example.com.
