Beer in Situ: Devil’s Door (Centum City)

This place has great views and an interesting ambiance. It’s billed as an American-style gastropub, but the interior suggests Essex in England. Bright red lights and a wall of kegs are on display, and the beer sampler comes on a custom-made LED display.

It’s a very family friendly place, with accomodating staff and a lot of space to put a stroller. They provide high chairs, too.

The food is a mix of Statesian fare and Korean fried chicken. I had a fried chicken sandwich and Russ had the burger. Overall the food was good and the price for the food reasonable. The price of the beer was another thing.

Admittedly for rare bottles, but $98???

In typical fashion for craft beer in Korea, the pints are $9.50 (USD). It makes for a pricey nught if you have a few, and you might be better off paying for the imported draught beers they have which are only about a dollar more per pint.

The beers that are made by the Devil’s Door brewery are simple and true to style. My favourite was the stout, which is roasty and simple. The IPA is a clean, English-style one (no big hop aromas and not as strong as an American-style IPA).

It’s a really popular place and filled up as the night went on. I’d go again, especially for the great night time views of the city.
