    Beer list: dark ale is best. So damn good! IPA is delish. Golden ale had good body to it.....not too light. Pils and hefe are both very decent. Stout I'd avoid...and I love stout, but too weak here

    If you go on the weekend, the brunch menu goes from opening (11:00) until 16:00. No burgers until the weekend menu starts. The breakfast burrito, western omelette, and the French toast are all good.

    While it does has the best selection of locally made beer, the wait time to get in & staff make it a no go for me. I have had then run out of beer on me, and it takes several tries to get service.

    located at Nogsapyeong one stop away from Itaewon, this hidden spot has a cool purely Korean brewed sampler of beers for 10K won.Try their palatable dishes too ( love their Apple pie).

    Red Velvet á la mode. A little to sweet for my liking but nonetheless a moist and delectable treat you do not wanna miss!

    On Monday nights, Craftworks holds a wing special: 12 wings for 6,000 won. There are 8 flavors of wings. Also, every weekday from 4pm to 6pm is Happy Hour at Craftworks. Enjoy 2,000 won off any beer!

    Jirisan IPA rocks!!! Get here before 7PM otherwise expect an hour to be seated... For the dishes I definitely recommend buffalo wings!!!

    My biggest criticism is the fact that staff speak English as the default. That's dumb. This is Korea. No matter how gentrified Itaewon gets we need to keep it real. Stop trying to be America.

    I like this place, but the service could be improved. Some of the waiters have attitude issues, and they aren't so great with the waitlist either. But the beer is great and the bar food pretty decent

    Good and refreshing beer. I like the Jirisan I.P.A., and Bukhansan Pale Ale. French fries are terrible, food is mostly sub-par, but pasta night is good!

    Come for the beer, go elsewhere for food. My buffalo chicken sandwich was made with chicken of the cave. Fries are decent though when fresh from the kitchen don't let them cool though.
