A tongue in cheek joke we have in Daejeon is that, since this is Daejeon, we aren’t allowed to have nice things. Well, in my opinion, 2016 is the year in which that has come to an end. Daejeon has had the annual Wine Festival for 4 or 5 years now. We started getting Subway (hold your laughter) restaurants in mass in 2016. A new brewery broke ground last year and the city rolled out the Daejeon Craft Beer festival in October. Things are looking good for Daejeon and the future.
