Of the many things wrong with North Korea, beer is, apparently, something they do right.
Indeed, if any were to take the leap and plunge their money into the Pyongyang abyss, the brewing industry may be one of the safer bets, due to the diversity of beers, the equipment, and proven domestic and international demand.
Daniel Tudor identified this bright spot years ago, and successfully leveraged his interest in beer (and North Korea) into two well-received books on changes in North Korea – particularly markets and private sector character – as well as a South Korean brew pub.
Daniel Tudor previously worked as Korea correspondent for the Economist. He has written several books on North and South Korea, including “North Korea Confidential” and “Ask a North Korean.” He is also the co-founder of The Booth Brewing Co.
