Gorilla Brewing Has Moved

After just a year of operation we have packed up and moved closer to the beach to a larger, more convenient facility.

This new location will house the brewery on the first floor, taproom on the 2nd floor, and roof top on the third floor. As the warmer months approach we will also open the take out bar and terrace connected to the brewery.

We are doing our bit for the Korean craft beer market by not only showcasing our full range of beers, but also the best of what our brewery friends are producing across the peninsula.  To go with our 24 local craft beer taps we’ll be adding to our popular pizza menu, and will be offering a lot more food specials including proper British fish & chips.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Two of Busan’s Best

Being two major players in the Busan craft beer scene, people will naturally compare our two breweries. That’s great! It means they’re talking about craft beer, and more importantly Busan’s craft beer.

You’ll also often find us in each other’s brewpubs on our days off, and pulling pranks on each other at the festivals around Korea. It was during these times that we decided it was about time we collaborated.

So, it’s my pleasure to announce that together with Galmegi Brewing Co, we will be adding an exciting new beer to our menus.

Just in time for Christmas, you will be able to sit back and enjoy a spicy red ale at either one of our brewpubs. Amber in color, this beer contains all the spices you associate with Christmas. Perfect for the holiday season and the cold months ahead.

Available December 16th 2016.

Busan meets New York

It’s been an eventful 2016. First London, now New York! This time we combined forces with Captain Lawrence Brewing, New York. (www.captainlawrencebrewing.com)

Once again we designed a recipe with the aim of adding more depth to our current range. After some chat back and forth, and recipes been thrown around, we decided on going for a White IPA. It was a lot of fun collaborating with Justin Sturges (experimental brewer at CL) to bring two great beer styles together.

Having been involved with Captain Lawrence throughout their growth, it was a fantastic opportunity for us to spend the day with him, tapping into the wealth of knowledge he’s gained over the years in this crazy market taking the world by storm.

The brew day was followed by introducing the New Yorkers to some fresh fish and live octopus. Watching and videoing several fish being gutted, stripped, and sliced was quite the spectacle. It really doesn’t come any fresher than that. They even managed to endure our British humor.

Back to the beer. Sitting at 6%, this light, hazy beer is bouncing with hops from aroma to taste. It has a clean, smooth mouth feel, finishing with a slight but pleasant bitterness. This white IPA is sure to quench your thirst.

Available December 16th 2016.

Gorilla Brewing x Young Madame

This Saturday we will be welcoming three young talents from the local DJ scene. They will be showcasing their talents from 9pm onwards. The very talented young female DJ 1 Oz Cat will be setting the pace early on to create the perfect lounge vibe. Don’t get too comfortable though. Young Madame, performing live for the first time, and the popular DJ Simon Vow will soon have you bobbing your head, tapping the table, and for those 5 IPA deep, dancing uncontrollably in your own little world. If you see Gorilla Brewer’s making their way to the DJ booth for a dance, please stop them, it’s in everyone’s best interest!

Live DJs, craft beer, handmade pizza, no cover. It has all the ingredients for a great night. See you there!

Busan meets London

We are delighted to announce the launch of our first collaboration.

Gorilla Brewing, in our first year of operation, teamed up with the hugely popular Crate Brewery, London. (www.cratebrewery.com)

Putting our creative minds together we designed and brewed an Extra Stout. Not just any Extra Stout. A Choco-Chili Extra Stout. Why Chili? Korea is famous for its unique chili, which is used in a majority of its dishes. So, to add some authenticity to this Korea X England collaboration we decided to throw a load into the kettle (calculated of course), with the aim of creating a warming after taste rather than an immediate spice. Perfect for the cold months ahead.

Combining the complexity of the malts, the Korean chili, chocolate nibs, fresh hops from our hop farm, we believe our two breweries have produced something special here. We’re not finished yet. To make this that little extra special we made it a NITRO Extra Stout! Arguably our greatest brewing achievement to date.

This beautifully dark, smooth and silky stout will leave you questioning its 7.7% ABV as you’re ordering another. Enjoy!

Choco-Chili Extra Stout 7.7% ABV 38 IBU.

Available now in Busan, and London!

There’s a New Beer in Town!

And what a beauty of a beer it is!

“Why don’t you make British style ales?”…. Something we often hear at Gorilla.

We do design all of our recipes with our British heritage in mind. However, I guess the name of a beer speaks volumes, and what’s more British than a brown ale.

So after bouncing a few recipe ideas back and forth, and some experimentation, we are very pleased with the results. Now on tap at Gorilla is our ‘Dark Nut Brown Ale’. As well as being dark and nutty, this little gem is creamy with a slightly sweet malt character. A classic British style beer brewed by some classy Brits! Enjoy!
