(The Korea Times)   North American microbrewers experiment with kimchi beer, possibly augmented with Sriracha. "Kimchi and beer are both fermented products, so it made sense to add these things together"   (koreatimes.co.kr) divider line 72

That sounds pretty awesome.

I think I'll pass, thanks

Fermented cabbage beer? Um, no thanks.
 
2012-07-02 05:59:33 PM  
I've put Sriracha into a lot of things, but it never occurred to me to put it into beer.

No no that's stewed cabbage. A lot of people get that confused.

If it's such a great idea, i.e. kimchi beer, why haven't the Koreans made it?

I'm pretty sure that homebrew beer has it's own corrolary to Rule 34.

If you can conceive of eating it, someone has brewed with it.

fwiw this does not sound like a terrible idea. I've had jalapeno beer that was not bad at all. And kimchi is delicious.
 
2012-07-02 07:05:31 PM  
How about no?
 
2012-07-02 07:11:32 PM  
Yeah, no. I love kimchi but there's no way it's a refreshing drink additive for beer. Now a kimchi bloody mary, now you're talking.
 
2012-07-02 07:51:53 PM  
I'd try it.

Also, I want this. Now.

The Chinese won't take this sitting down, my agents tell me they are busy developing a 1,000 Year-old Egg beer to escalate their nuclear flatuence capabilities.

I love Kimchi and Sirachi, and beer even more. I think I just threw up a little reading this headline.

Sounds awful to me.

At best, it will be "non toxic"

I think that would a tually be good. Sorry about the no " " there. I kind of threw them all up thinking about kim hi beer.

This is not an outlandish suggestion either. I haven't found an example of it yet, but dried natto is considered by many to pair well with beer.

It's not a super great idea for an adjunct because it has a lot of protein in it, but i could see someone throwing it into the boil in the last 15 minutes
 
2012-07-02 11:21:03 PM  
I love beer, love Sriracha, and I've started coming around on kimchi. That said, I can't imagine enjoying such a beer. I'd at least have a sip out of curiosity though.
 
2012-07-02 11:43:45 PM  
I love kimchi and beer, but no, the two together most definitely DO NOT sound like a good idea.
 
2012-07-02 11:54:38 PM  
How about toejam and beer?

Toejam is fermented too, so according to this twat's logic, should be a great combination.
 
2012-07-02 11:55:04 PM  
I like kimchi (lived in Korea). I like beer. The two together...this does not sound like winning. However, azmoviez's mention of kimchi bloody mary...that sounds like something to try.
 
2012-07-02 11:56:01 PM  
no thanks that sounds as pleasant as a stein filled with Oktoberfest sauerkraut beer.
 
2012-07-02 11:59:02 PM  
Seems like it would make more sense to make kimchi soju, I certainly don't associate anything Korean with beer. Not good beer, anyway.
 
2012-07-03 12:01:45 AM  
My favorite part is the caption: "An American holds a glass of kimchi beer in New York.
 
2012-07-03 12:03:06 AM  
If Rogue couldn't make Maple Bacon beer work, I have zero hope for Kimchi Sriracha beer.

Well, you definitely need a beer or 10 to wash the foul taste out of your mouth.

/yeah, I'm obviously one of those folks who just cannot develop a taste for natto

Food truck here did a Kimichilada: kimchi juice, lime, salt & beer. Their "twist on the michelada"
 
2012-07-03 12:25:36 AM  
Beau's did a Kimchi beer? They're more a party beer kind of brewery but I'd give it a try.
 
2012-07-03 12:25:39 AM  
Didn't I warn ye? We've reached peak Sriracha!
 
2012-07-03 12:28:11 AM  
There's no way I'd reach the point of being drunk enough to try kimchi beer before I reached the point of being drunk enough to pass out.

Hey, man, sometimes you only have about $3.50 and you really need to get drunk and you're in Korea.

Try these and you'll fall in love with at least one of them. That pine one didn't taste anything like I was expecting. Seaweed one neither.

Cherry Wheat is quite tasty, and it got me started on my love for fruit beers; Shock Top, Blue Moon, Pyramid Apricot, etc... Fruit + alcohol = awesome. (Mmm, sangria...) Now, kimchi? I... I'd give it a try because sometimes weird sh*t actually comes out well. Though from the description in TFA, it sounds like it'd taste something like a Bloody Mary, but with less tomato. I can't wait to get my own damn home (I hate renting) so I can convert a room or an outdoor shed into my own microbrew and do fun stuff like this. :)

the dizzle: Food truck here did a Kimichilada: kimchi juice, lime, salt & beer. Their "twist on the michelada"


Could anything be more vile than a michelada?

Honestly sour beers are "in" right now, for some folk. kimchi is just cabbage and spices fermented with some particular lactobacilli strains. Sour beers are enough "in" that wyeast and white labs (iirc) both sell lacto cultures.

this is not so far fetched. Not nearly as bad as that one guy who poured heavy cream into his wort.

It's just sour and spice and a little bit of vegetal flavor that probably cooks off in the boil. sour beers are relatively common with the beer nerd set, and chilli beers are common to craft breweries - i know there is always a jalapeno cream ale on tap when there is a hispanic holiday around here.

all that said, my guess is that the people who asked for a 2nd taste were thinking "That wasn't horrible, now, what did it taste like? I was too busy bracing myself for it to taste terrible!"

I can imagine the smell both before and after. No thanks.

I had cucumber beer once, in Germany.

It... wasn't bad. Wasn't great, or even particularly good, but it wasn't bad.

I'll give this a shot if I can find it cheap.

No way that qualified under Reinheitsgebot to be called bier.

Ah, kimchi. Food of the gods. With rice and dried seaweed? Sigh... I gotta try this beer.

Is this some sort of weird Asian fart fetish thing?
