Cheers! as Seodaemun-gu hosts Korean ‘Oktoberfest’
Plenty of beer will flow at the German-style “Oktoberfest” in Sinchon Saturday, Yonhap reported Friday.
The Seodaemun district office said it will host the first Sinchon “Oktoberfest” in Yonsei-ro, starting at 5:30 p.m.
The event’s highlight will be an attempt to break the record – tallied by the Korea Record Institute – of the “most people in one place to do cheers with beer.” The record was set at the Centum Beer Festival in Busan where 2,846 people simultaneously bid cheers.
There will be about 80 types of craft beer and 40 world beers featured. Other events are also planned. Participants will be screened for identification.
