LET YOUR TASTES UNVEIL THE BEST MICROBREWERIES IN BENGALURU! ?
Its summer and the beer lovers wouldn’t think twice before guzzling down a pint or two on a ruthless sunny day! But there is something almost uncanny about a freshly brewed craft beer, isn’t it? The taste is distinctive and the fact that it flows straight from the tap, adds a special essence that no bottled beer can give. And therefore, the concept of microbreweries is gaining unflinching popularity from all directions.
Our explorers have been to some really awesome places, and oh boy, have we been floored by their crafty beer-y discovery!
So here are a few snippets of what we personally tried and tasted till our liver gave us the happy high green sign, because Hello?! Bengaluru, known as the Silicon Valley of India, is also the Original Pub Capital, AND Beer Capital of the country. ?
From scintillating Stout to that Wheat Beer, here is a list of our personal favorite microbreweries that’s NEVER let us down, in good times and bad
- Arbor Brewing Company (ABC)
ABC is the first American Craft Brewery in India, offering some dark and smoky flavors of the beer.
Must-try beers according to Ananta Kumari include Raging Elephant IPA with a hint of citrus, the malty Euchre Pilsner, Phat Abbot Belgian Tripple, Bangalore Bliss, Porter, and Honey Ale. With a spacious and an elegant quarter, this place makes the craft beer experience to die for.
2. Big Brewsky
A setting straight outta Jungle Book with wallflowers, and an ambiance that would hold you back, Big Brewsky is one of Nikita Andrews‘s all-time favorite.
The must-try beers include Belgian Wheat Beer and the Smoked Beer. We were wooed by the smoked beers. The flavors are hoppy, and thick with a strong aroma and taste of smoke!
Pro Tip: Arrive early so that you can grab a poolside seat – and let yourself drown in the ambiance.
3. Toit Brewpub
With a supreme brewpub experience, Toit lives up to its hype. The first brewery to experiment with ragi beer, it had an overwhelming response from the patrons.
Toit has a German-style brewhouse as well as an open fermenter. With an aura of a century-old rustic house, the place and the ambiance is just what you would need on a Friday night.
And, Oh, there’s the Dark Knight too.
If you are into home-brews, our boozy minions, then Prost is THE place for you! It boasts to offer six exquisite in-house brews. How cool is that? Thanks to Soumi Mukherjee for this!
The Stout beer and Irish Ale might leave you believing how right Tyrion Lannister was when he said, “I drink and I know things!”
For people who don’t like overly bitter beers, the Spinner that they serve over there is also exceptional. Also, on other occasions, we had tried Bangalore Bolt and Prost Special. And, they were pretty darn great!
Tip to a beer lover: Try each and every brew, TWICE!
5. Windmills Craftworks
Saved the BEST for the last!
Annnnnnd THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is our favorite out of all the above mentioned.
We can’t thank Satish Kumar for bringing this gem to us!
Little bias here but, you love who you love!
Perfect for a date-night sort of setting, and if you happen to be a beer lover, it’s cherry on the top.
You might want to take your soul or your soul-mate to this ethereal place on a Jazz night. It is a magnificent cozy living room with the shelves running along the walls adorned with books of every genre. The ambiance would blow your mind, and trust us; this is going to be your personal favorite, too!
All your doubts about ale and lagers will be clarified right here.
The Indian Pale Ale (IPA) is the hoppiest (meaning, bitter) beer, and a must-try!
They have some seasonal flavors like Coconut Brown Ale to try!
And the winner was Hefeweizen. The best beer we have ever had in Bengaluru.
So, unleash the Joey in you and get down to brewery hopping already, will you? ?
