Toit Comes To Mumbai
Guest Blog By Our Mumbai Based Friends Of Froth Admin
Nestled right in the bylanes of the busy Todi Mills, Lower Parel is yet another craft beer drinkers paradise. Located right opposite the iconic Woodside Inn (which itself has about 24 craft beer taps) Toit, the iconic Bangalore brewery has finally made its way to Bombay.
This legendary craft beer joint has, for the first time, opened its doors to a city other than Bangalore. If you enter during the day, the glass panelled roof lets in a lot of sunlight making it a pleasant sight.
That, put together with the greenery inside, gives out a very welcoming feel. With a geometric decor, they’ve explored and made an apt use of space especially with seating spread across different levels. Anticipating a lot of crowd (and rightly so), they have a seating capacity of about 280 people.
The yellow walls here are adorned with famous movie posters, quirky quotes and poems (our favourite is their tongue in cheek take on Jack and Jill) and a mural portraying the city.
The ambiance of the place is sophisticated yet vibrant, just like the city. Sure, Mumbaikars miss Blue Frog, but will definitely be stumped, yet pleasantly surprised, to see the absolute change which that place has gone through.
The food here is a mixture of what Toit serves in Bangalore at their main Brewpub and also from The Permit Room.
With Toit, Woodside inn and Super Happy Pop Up, it’s apt that they rename the lane as The Craft Beer Gully!
The Beers here aren’t brewed on site but at Toit’s production brewery located just outside Pune. Once ready, the beers are filled into kegs and then put on trucks that deliver them to the taproom.
Pricing – Rs 200 for 250 ml and Rs 300 for 500 ml glasses.
The selection is the same as Bangalore – all those classy favorites are available in Mumbai in two convenient sizes.
