Evil Twin is one of my fav breweries... so many interesting brews and especially collabs. I recommend buying their Ying and Yang separately, and then pouring them yourself to make an at-home Black 'n Tan.

Speaking of Evil Twin, had their "Low Life" pilsner recently and it's a killer. Still light and quashable, but with some hoppy funk that I really dug. Immediately one of my fave pilsners ever.

If you've ever wondered what fizzy alcoholic banana milkshake would be like, then a chilled can of Korean banana 'Makgeolli' (sparkling rice beer) hits the spot.

It paired well with a bag of sweet & spicy 'Tteokbokki' crunchy dried rice cake tubes. A lingering spice heat and sweet to the point of being almost candied.

Ha! Wow, that brought back a wave of nostalgia for me. Fresh tteokbokki is great (ever had it, @TM2YC ?), though I never gravitated towards the dried snack version. Used to have a tteokbokki vendor cart outside my apartment in Dongdaemun. Never had banana makgeolli, but I can imagine it cutting the spice well.
I wouldn't personally describe makgeolli as "beer" though, it's more similar to unfiltered (cloudy) sake. The non-canned version is pretty low alcohol too, like 2%, real old skool working man swill. Looks like you got a pretty premium import store near ya!

We’re in Dublin so I picked up a bottle of bourbon barrel aged Guiness, which I’d never seen before. As I suspected the stout is, well, not stout enough to stand up to the bourbon barrel aging. I prefer imperial type stouts for that. Guiness is great for what it is, but I don’t think barrel aging like that is where its strengths lie.
