In the last decade or so, India has seen an increase in the number of local micro-breweries and beer lovers. The number of educated and passionate beer drinkers in the country is on the rise, and these guzzlers have an insatiable thirst for the world’s most loved alcoholic beverage. Bangalore seems to be at the centre of this beer revolution. In this city you can find a large number of bars, both old and new, which are committed to fulfilling the needs of expanding beer bellies. Here’s a look at some of the city’s beer bars which have over the years become popular Bangalore attractions.
Where the hipsters hang
At the centre of Bangalore’s micro-brewery revolution the Toit Brewpub and The Biere Club. The Toit Brewpub was opened in 2010 by three lads who were dissatisfied with the beer available locally and decided to fix the problem by brewing their own. They serve about 6 or 7 home brewed beers along with greasy favourites like fried potato skins, chicken wings, fried calamari and many more. If you want to sample all their brews you can opt for 90ml tasters. Their food menu goes way beyond bar nibbles; they serve delicious pizzas baked in a wood fired oven!
The Biere Club proudly proclaims that it is Bangalore’s first craft brewery and set out with a mission to elevate the status of this humble bubbly drink. They brew beer on the premises and serve it to you strait from the tap. You can actually drink your beer while watching the next batch being made. Feel free to ask questions and understand the process of beer making. How’s that for an education?
These are some of the newest Bangalore attractions, admired for their pioneering contributions to a new upcoming industry.
The winning combination of beer & rock’n’roll
If you like things old school then head over to Le Rock near Brigade Road. The wise folks at this old favourite understand that a chilled pint of beer is even more enjoyable when served up with some good ol’ rock’n’roll. What’s even better? You can feast on their signature bar snacks like Bacon Wrapped Prawns and Chicken Tenders. If you’re watching your waistline don’t even bother visiting Le Rock. This place will lure you into indulgence, without burning too much of a hole in your pocket, which makes it worth a mention on our list of Bangalore attractions.
Now if you’re a teetotaller these beer bars just won’t interest you. But you still need a way to cool off! Just sign up for a culinary class and learn how to make delicious mocktails, which you can whip up for yourself and all your friends on a hot summer’s day.
