on Korean alcohol

Thanks to my Twitter feed, I happened upon an interesting article about Korean makgeolli. Is it rice wine or rice beer? To answer the question, the article takes a fascinating historical approach (Mike, you history lover, take note!). Aside from the article's silly, pandering spelling of my mother's country's name ("Corea"-- a spelling that puts the country before Japan in European languages that write lists using Roman alphabets), it's informative and enjoyable.
