We visited Galmegi (Seagull) brewing near Gwanganli beach and were extremely glad that we did! It’s tucked away from the touristy part of the beach and located on the second floor overlooking the street. Cool artsy posters lined the walls and a Korean baseball game...was on. The relaxed atmosphere was accented by a number of serious awards that the brewery has won. We sampled several beers and I wish we could’ve found this place on our first night in Busan! The IPAs were fantastic, especially its namesake IPA, and the “Busan As F***” Double IPA. You can either sip your beer and soak up the street view and relaxed vibes or Dustin can prepare you with a few cans to go on the spot. We decided to eat dinner there also. The fish and chips were on par with that of the UK and the homemade sausages were flavorful, and packed a spicy kick. The fries were done perfectly. I can’t wait to go back!More

This restaurant had great American style pizza featuring New York and Detroit pizzas. It offered two different sampler beer planners and a variety of bottled and daft beers to choose from. Everything was fresh and made on site. They also had great appetizers. Highly recommend...if you like a western brewery / restaurant feel.More

It was a cold, rainy, windy, wintery day. We were hungry and desperately needed a drink after walking along Gwangalli Beach when we found this place online. No regrets walking to find it! Don't miss the Expresso Vanilla Stout - we dare say it was...even better than the famous Irish stout which is usually our top favourite. I also enjoyed the Lighthouse Blond a lot. We had fish & chips, and some pizza - nothing to shout about - just something to fill the tummies so we wouldn't be guzzling on empty tanks. We will definitely go back one day for more!More

The craft beers were great. Worth a visit if you like to try different kinds of beer. We tried everything on their normal menu and found each one to be good. Personal favourite was the Galmegi IPA for its crisp hoppiness. Definitely a good place...for a cold beer after a long summer day!More

We found Galmegi by accident as we were walking down the street and decided to try it. We were very glad we did. The bbq pizza was amazing and their blonde beer was extremely tasty. If you like different craft beers and good pizza and...are nearby, try this place!More

True that couple of beers I tried were a real gem compared with usual Korean "pils". Nice English speaking staff, random atmosphere with somewhat music in spite of pleasant place layout. Go there for beers !!!

13,000 won for 1 strip of fish, shoestring potatoes and bad tartar sauce. Bad value. I'd definitely recommend eating food elsewhere and grabbing some craft beer here.

We stopped by because of the ratings even though we can get food back in the States similar to what is served here. The restaurant had great ambiance, It is upstairs with large windows which provides a very nice view of a pretty street in...Busan. We had the pizza - there are not many items on the menu, but what we ordered was fine. The brewer from North California made our night. Coaxed me into tasting one of his citrus undertone beer creations. It was really good and I'm not a beer drinker.More

The place has great music, good ambience. Good selection of beers. The menu is relatively short for food options, however the beer makes up for the few choices. Great place to go with the friends for a beer and appetizers, but maybe not the best...sit down restaurant.More

저는 전국 수제맥주 기행 다니는 맥주 애호가입니다 부산 광안리 오시면 시원 소주에 쏘맥도 좋지만 부산의 대표적인 수제 맥주 갈매기브루잉도 추천합니다 I am a single beer hunter who traveled in over 50 countries. These days I started to explore korean crat beer breweries. Galmegi is the...symbol bird of a fun seaport city,Busan. It's definitely worth to stop and grab a wonderful beer when you come to Gwangan beach. Especially if you're disappointed at Cass or Hite. Don't miss a variety of amazing Korean microbreweries.More
