So, after looking at the different breweries in Bangalore, we bring you some of the best and unique breweries in every nook and corner in Mumbai:

Gateway Taproom

Location: Godrej BKC Building, Bandra Kurla Complex

Started by young entrepreneurs, Gateway Brewing Co. is a cross between a microbrewery and a commercial beer brand. It is known to be one of the best breweries in Mumbai and it creates unique beers from local ingredients that are then supplied to pubs across Mumbai.

Along with its popular craft beers, Gateway Taproom at BKC also serves beer cocktails and lip-smacking food to go along with your drinks. Try Grape in My Side Car, Jim’s Stout, Ginger Lemon Radler, and Gin Zen, from their rich collection of beer cocktails. Add grilled fish skewers, tuna crostini, melon feta carpaccio, bacon-wrapped sausages, chicken schnitzel, and tenderloin burrito with your drinks to create perfection! Don’t forget to check out their collection during the Oktoberfest!

Brewbot Eatery and Pub Brewery

This easygoing brewery loves robots, hence its name. Known for its casual feel and its original brews, they have a special Hoppy Hour offer where they supersize your beer and get you a 550ml one, while you actually pay for a 330ml one. Yep! With their good selection of wheat beers and IPAs, you can also get a lot of scrumptious and delectable dishes including an amazing variety of tacos, pizzas, and chicken wings and juicy chicken sliders.

In case you like favour darker beers, try the Black Mamba. This British-style oatmeal stout is an absolute delight! And if you’d like to opt for something smooth and light, try their Botwork orange or Skywalker.

Newbies can pick this place as the menu here explicitly describes each and every beer ( from colour to its taste), which helps in selecting with greater authority. Adding to that, they also tell you what dish it tastes best with. Try their Flying Pig Belgian Wit and their amazing burgers along with great finger food to make your night (or afternoon)!
