Summer is here in Bangalore/India and that means only one thing – as the mercury rises, so does your thirst.
Nothing satisfies a parched throat better than a glass of cold Beer!
There are a few exciting Craft Beer events taking place across the country this month and I don’t want any of you to miss out.
Brewbot | Andheri West -Mumbai | Wednesday, March 07 | 7 pm onwards
What: Launch of The Hoppit & Strawberry Cider
Offer: These two styles will be served at Rs. 100 each all night
Benji Rockwell, New Zealand’s popular beer aficionado, prepared a brew so fine, that it will make your mind wander!
As a part of the Beer Incubator program, Brewbot Eatery & Pub Brewery and Bombay Duck Brewing along with Benji Rockwell created a brew called The Hoppit! What’s that? – A pilsner loaded with hops, which is light bodied, with no fermented sugar, and great for the summer! ‘The Hoppit’, a state of the art, New Zealand style pilsner craft beer has a spicy character with a floral aroma and flavor!
Along with this fine brew, Brewbot would be launching another special brew, which will be the second cider of Brewbot in Mumbai! Fresh from the hills, full of aroma and flavor,
The Strawberry Cider!
What’s the Beer Incubator?
- A community outreach initiative launched by Brewbot Eatery & Pub Brewery

- It shall be a 20 litre batch, which will give you 50 pints of beer
