The Brewers Association Export Development Program is participating in the 2018 Seoul Wine and Spirits Expo in Seoul Korea in April. This will be our third year at the festival.

The Brewers Association Export Development Program is partnering with the USDA’s Agricultural Trade Office (ATO) in South Korea, to host the “Great American Craft Beer Showcase” at the Seoul Wine and Spirits Expo from April 26-28. The showcase will include a booth presence for American craft beer at the Expo, as well as an American craft beer seminar.

The Seoul Wine and Spirits Expo is a major alcohol trade show in South Korea, which is a rapidly growing market. USDA has identified it as the most promising event for the marketing of American craft beer, even though the name of the show focuses on other alcoholic beverages. Please refer to Korea Beer Market Report 2017 published by ATO Seoul, for information about the beer market in Korea.
