Mumbai Craft Beer Options

Updated – Q3, 2019

Mumbai’s Craft Beer scene started with the opening of The Barking Deer in 2013 and like Pune has developed quite rapidly with brewpubs, production breweries and taprooms.

It’s an exciting city with an equally exciting Craft Beer scene with plenty of innovation and several Craft Beer festivals throughout the year.

Please contact some of the breweries in the list above and ask them for recommendations. Adding a list of bars, restaurants and taprooms would make this post far too long and to be honest quite boring!

For up to date information about Mumbai, you can ask the Mumbai chapter of the Friends Of Froth Facebook group for assistance. If you discover new spots, please share these on the group and these will be added to the list.
