The hottest temperature is over 30 degrees Celsius every day, and it is so hot that you tend to hesitate to go outside in the middle of the day.
That doesn’t imply you shouldn’t participate in outdoor activities. For such people, we’d like to offer the ‘2022 Gangneung Beach Beer Festival,’ which will be hosted at Gyeongpo Beach, where the blue waves abound.
Since its inception in 2019, the ‘Gangneung Beach Beer Festival’ has been permanently stopped owing to the unprecedented COVID-19 circumstance. Finally, in 2022, we staged the second ‘Gangneung Beach Beer Festival’ with the theme ‘Rise up in Gangneung’ to bring recovery and good energy to all people who were weary by the lengthy COVID-19.
Famous craft beer brewers from not only Gangneung but also as far away as Ulsan and Dongducheon participated in the ‘Gangneung Beach Beer Festival’ hosted in the center plaza of Gyeongpo Beach for three days from July 8 to July 10. Many of the travelers that took part got the opportunity to sample artisan beers from diverse places that are not commonly available in one location.
Band performances and DJ & hip-hop performances that go well with a cool beer in the lovely summer sea of Gyeongpo were one-of-a-kind events that could only be found in Gangneung. Seeing family, friends, and couples enjoying themselves, which we haven’t seen in a long time, placed a smile on my face. The ‘Gangneung Beach Beer Festival’ is destined to become one of Korea’s most recognizable summer beach festivities. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event.
