I was in this place recently as the need to check out the all new happening micro-brewery spot in Bangalore and especially the place being so close to where I live, this could not have been missed! My friend and I, with prior bookings, reached on time and the valet parking assistance never reached us. After seeking for it a few times and failing with that, the cops asking all of us waiting for the valet parking to make way for others, we decided to park the car in UB City and walk back. Upon reaching, they led us in on the ground floor. They showed us our table but, asked us to wait as the previous customer were just finishing and we need to wait for a few minutes. This treatment was after making prior bookings and reaching on time! For a moment, it reminded me of how I wait for the space and table in Vidyarthi Bhavan. After around 10mins, we got our table and we were given our beer and finger food menu. Always wanting to try out the Wheat beer, we dint think too much on selecting the beer and ordered for the same. To munch along, we ordered Crisp Fried Stuffed Jumbo for our finger food. They also serve other drinks for those who are non-beer people. However, their food menu is restricted only to finger food and for veggies, the choice incredibly less.
5 minutes later, we were told, the wheat beer is out of stock and to brew it all over again, it takes around one and half days of time and we were disappointed. That was what we wanted to try and we were told, we need to revisit to enjoy the same. With this, we ended up ordered a couple of Lager beers. This tasted the usual and the finger food to explain in the layman terms, I would say, it was Glorified Stuffed Chilli Bhajji with cheese dip and yogurt and pepper dip. Yes, it tasted good but, absolutely nothing different from any other regular Chilli Bhajji.
The place has three floors and I felt, ground floor was the best in terms of the ambience. They have a large screen and a couple of Wall Mounted TVs. It was the IPL finals that day and somebody by mistake ended up changing the channel that played a senti song of Dr.Rajkumar and after a few minutes of hiatus, it was changed back to the match.
According to me, its an ok place. If you LOVE beer and would love to get it brewed fresh and want to try out multiple variety without much choice of food, this surely is the place. But, not something that I would go frequently! Couple of beers and very little food to munch would approximately cost around 1000 bucks!
