Makgeoli in the Midwest?

I love this story! They are going to start brewing makgeoli (Korean rice wine) in the US! Soju is definitely the more popular drink in Korea, but it tastes like death. Makgeoli is smooth and low-alcohol content and fun to drink with fried foods and fish. Hell, it is fun to drink with everything. The brewery is going to open in Chicago, so hopefully that means it will be easy to get my hands on some makgeoli back in the US? It will probably go for a pretty penny though... one bottle here is about two dollars, which is similar to soju. But a bottle of soju back home costs about twelve dollars; I should probably just stay here to enjoy my makgeoli.
