6. Brewsky – JP Nagar

brewsky freedom ale

  • India Freedom Ale – Limited Brew. – An interesting smoked ale with lots of spicy notes – cinnamon dominates but this brew has been steeped with an array of ten different Indian spices. I would describe this as “Brew Tonic” – something I’d love to have in the morning!
Brewsky Freedom Ale 2
The Freedom Ale

  • Belgian Wit
  • Hefeweizen
  • Hopfenweizen

Brewsky On Tap

7. District 6 – Malleswaram

The Kaptain District 6
The Kaptain Weizenbock
  • #D6Turns 1 Celebrations are on-going : Special food menu, Drink Specials and Entertainment
  • The only brewpub in Bangalore that follows the German Purity Law – from brewing techniques to ingredients. D6 uses Weyermann Malts imported from Bamberg, Germany and their brewmaster has been trained to brew in Germany. Prost!!!
  • My favorites – The Guru Ale (Caramel Malts and Hoppy Goodness at 6%)  and Kaptain Weizenbock (Bocks are stronger lagers – this one a stronger version of a hefeweizen but made with bottom fermenting lager yeast). Pair with the Reuben Steak Sandwich.
  • Other Brews on tap:
  • The Liberator – Lager 4.5%
  • The Chief – Hefeweizen 4.5%
  • The Dark Lord – Stout 4.5%
  • The Radler – Lemon Lager 2.5% (sweet)

8. The Beer Cafe – Indiranagar

  • A new Beer Cafe that apparently has 50 brands from 17 countries. This is their 25th outlet in India – They currently have 17 brews available with draft beer on the way. A lovely space with bright, modern interiors located just up the road from Pecos. Be patient, more bottled imports are on the way – the delay is due to government delays. It’s a pity that the pub capital of India has red tape hindering the growth of craft beer in this city!
  • Innovative Brewtails – Beer Cocktails. Try their version of a re-worked Moscow Mule – vodka, ginger, cucumber, topped up with lager. Absolutely refreshing.
  • Check out their Facebook Page > https://www.facebook.com/thebeercafe

Alternative – If you don’t like the selection of imports, you can always mosey on over to Bootleger on Vital Mallya Road to sample their impressive selection of import brews.
