Drink the World Cup | Korea vs. Belgium


This should be a great final match up of the group and looks like Belgium is moving on and Korea isn't.

One of the largest beer producers in Korea is OB and you'll find it in many Korean restaurants in the US. OB or Oriental Brewery is a South Korean brewery that has changed ownership a few times (from InBev to Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and back to InBev). It is brewed using rice rather than malted barley. It's a pale lager that has citrus notes and is mildly bitter. Perfect with Korean BBQ.

Belgium might be my new favorite team in the World Cup, especially since England faired so poorly. Buss No. 509 is a distiller based in Antwerp that makes gin with fresh fruits like raspberry and pink grapefruit. Another good way to enhance a gin and tonic with more flavors.
