The unique selling point of Arbor Brewing Company is its sheer size - although, in spite of that, you might be jostling the crowd a fair bit on weekends. Their brews range from the pale ale to the Irish stout to even spiced ale, but it is the wheat beer - Bangalore Bliss - that is most popular among beer drinkers. Try the flaming chicken for starters - it is spicy and citrusy at the same time, and works well with beers. The black bean nachos too are quite decent. They have also got tacos and fajitas, but if you want a full meal, their burgers seem to be a good choice.
Each establishment strives not to get lost in the immense sea of microbreweries scattered across Bengaluru by either sheer will or clever gimmicks. The city seems to have been taken over by the microbreweries since tipplers are switching loyalty from malts to beers in the presence of delicious craft beers churned out by the breweries regularly. Where there was once a time when malts were the king of nightlife, the scales have tipped in the favor of craft beers since the arrival of these newfound microbreweries. Joining the already swelling number is another brew venture called ‘Arbor Brewing Company’, a trendy sprawling brew library known for churning out excellent house beers. It’s quite fashionably located on 3rd Floor, Allied Grande Plaza, Magrath Road, Brigade Road, Bengaluru.
Like most microbreweries, the crux of success lies in the beers, which Arbor Brewing Company seems to be an expert of. They brew amazing in-house beers so it’s safe to recommend – have whatever is on tap. Point in their favor is that they describe each craft beer properly by mentioning not only the strength, appearance, tasting notes but also great food pairings. Bangalore Bliss is a resounding favourite. Complement your pint with an array of nibbles such as, grilled bratwurst, smothered bacon chili fries, sizzling garlic & rosemary lamb chops, fancy potato skins, pulled pork slider, chili fish and teriyaki beef skewers. Those wanting a full meal should opt for a pizza or anything between grilled red snapper, steak tenderloin with pink peppercorns, soft tacos, spaghetti aglio e olio and jerk chicken.
Sweeten your palate with an oatmeal crème brule or stout brownies with walnuts. You can always skip desserts in favor of another beer. Service gets a little slow during weekends, don’t lose patience. Presence of kids menu signifies their welcome for your tiny tots. Prices are a tad higher than you think, order accordingly. First thing that strikes you upon entering Arbor Brewing Company is the sheer space offered by the microbrewery, a luxury in pub culture. The chic industrial décor emphasizing on polished wood, leather couches, iron bar stools and dim lighting gives the seating section an intense, modern look. Snag the green sofa in front of the vats to accentuate the microbrewery feel.
