Basement level has a concrete bunker vibe but the wooden tables and soft lighting help to ease the mood. Beer quality is solid across the board and up there with the best in South Korea. Pizza available from the in-house oven. Thereís no real interaction with staff. Place your order at the bar and move on. Itís a fun place to grab a beer during a crawl along the alley, however be aware that it does get loud down here.

7 beers on tap in upstairs street bar. Tried American IPA, Robust Porter and Country Folk Farmhouse Pale Ale. All were excellent. Very good value for Korea at 6-7000won. Highly recommended if in the area.

Upstairs is a small space with half-a-dozen taps and a small selection of bar nibbles. Taps are split between Magpie beers and other local (Seoul) beers. Downstairs is larger, with similar tap setup (maybe a couple more) and with pizza ... very nice pizza at that. Bar staff downstairs are friendly, but with limited english (learn Korean!). If you visit only one craft beer place in Seoul, to get a feel for the local scene, Magpie is probably the best, and makes the best Korean craft beers Iíve tasted.My ratings are based on the downstairs part; I find upstairs a little claustrophobic.

One of my favorite places during my trip to Seoul. It is located near Noksapyeong station and has 3 beers on tap. All are nice and the prices are really reasonable (5000 won for the Copper & Pale Ale, 6000 won for the Porter). Their posters & labels are quite cool, they have growlers & the staff seemed to know their beer too. The atmosphere was bare concrete & wood which I like, very clean & simple. The main bar is open to the street which is cool and across the alleyway you have a basement bar which was surprisingly large. A great addition to the Seoul scene! ----update 2015----- the Pale Ale is still 5000 won but most are now 6000-8000 won but it is still one of my favorite places in Seoul with many new beers including Goses~! A must stop in town.

There are two places: a small brewerytap on the ground floor with two taps of their own beer , and accross the alley - and ealy to miss - a larger basement with another 4 taps with another two of their own beer, and two guest beers. As well as a pizza oven for fresh pizza. Nice simply place of concret, wood and metal that wouldnít look out of place in the brewing scene of a European capiital. And the 3 beers I had where the best I had in Seouel.

Neat little location in an alley lined with some other bars and restaurants. Insides of both the brewshop and basement are bare and give it a rustic feel. The servers were very friendly. I think I remember seeing one or two snacks offered at the brewshop. They only make three beers and they are all pretty good. Prices are fair. Still a fairly new place and I look forward to returning some time in the near future to see how much it will have grown.
