Korean drinking culture has many differences when it compares to Western style. Especially, there's a visible difference of the Korean drinking culture. What that is People must drink alcohol with heavy munchies which are salty fatty and sweet (I know you thought Poktanju ;-) It's outstanding way that makes you shocked, though). At least, people set the table with drinks and Kimchi on the table.
Korean people usually match a type of drinks and a snack, make a pair of them. For example, roast pork belly comes to Soju, Pajeon comes to Makgeolli, and Fried chicken comes to beer of course.
Daegu city turns the Chicken & beer culture to the festival in which families and friends sit on the grass together, enjoy the summer night with fried chicken and beer in the park! This unique, unexampled festival would be hold in 18th, July in a blaze of publicity.
