The milkshake has versions has both alcohol and non-alcoholic versions, both at the price of 6,800 KRW each.

It is one of the oldest breweries in Korea, producing makgeolli since 1925, and was once used as the headquarters of UN forces during the Korean War (1950 - 1953), being the only undestroyed building in the area. Jipyeong Makgeolli has been a staple in bar fridges for many years, and they just recently released a sparkling version which can be found in many supermarkets.
