Independence Brewery from Pune Will Serve Up Chocolate-Flavored Beer in Mumbai | The Urban Vibe

Independence Brewery from Pune Will Serve Up Chocolate-Flavored Beer in Mumbai | The Urban Vibe
A quality pint makes the world a whole lot rosier, and we’re not alone in feeling a little sentimental about the magical combination of hops, malts, yeast, and water.

As a few of you who already know that Blue Frog shut down with a banger weekend making its way for Toit, a popular microbrewery from Bangalore.

But wait we have another brewery from Pune called Independence Brewing Company making its way to Andheri end of September.

This will be about a 100-seater gastro pub owned by Shailendra Bist and Greg Koch opening opposite to City Mall right next to Mamagoto. The Déco and the vibe  is said to be similar to the Pune outpost, Mumbai will see the same modest wooden and metal decor. Independence uses local ingredients and has an in-house lab that propagates live cultures for the beer. A must-have of the Independence Brewing Company is its Rye Pale Ale, made with classic Columbus and Chinook hops from the US, as well as rye, caramel and pale barley malts.



The menu is said to be concise and crisp rather big as the original branch in Pune, the food menu is also likely to be the same apart from a few Mumbai-specific additions like the Link Road burger.

On Tap

They will have their own seven beers on tap – featuring Belgian Wit, Hoppy Blonde Ale, Four Grain Saison, Lxcacao {a chocolate-flavored beer}. They will also have guest taps for local beers so you have plenty of options to choose from.

What we think is….

Somehow Mumbai’s brewery scene is just getting better and better with soo much to choose from. The only difference would be the pricing and the convenience; surprisingly a lot of Mumbaikars do take that into consideration. We are looking forward to this Pune pub, with their selection of in-house craft beers, food and certainly the Chocolate beer.

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Right ?!
