If there is one thing Bangalore can assure you of, it’s never to run out of new places to try. Here are 9 places to add to your list of new places to check out in the city.
Jayanagar in South Bangalore is now becoming just as hip as any of the other dining destinations in the city. With Brewmeister, we now have a place in the heart of Jayanagar, that currently has around 6 beers on tap and is doing a pretty darn good job of it all. Their European Style Pilsner makes for easy drinking. Their Pale is quite nice too. While I am not a Stout fan yet, theirs might be the one that will make me change my mind. A recent visit had a mango beer on tap and this one had a lingering bitterness that a lot of beer lovers will like. The menu focuses more on finger foods and does a great job with some local favourites like Masala Egg, Pork Chops, Beef fries and Chilli Chicken!
The Spice Terrace at the JW Marriott Bengaluru became one of the first 5 star properties to introduce a brewery on their premises recently. They have four variants on tap and these are of the Belgian variety. Look out for the Abbey Blond which is light-bodied and mildly spiced. There is the Abbey Dark with a hint of roasted chocolate. The Belgian white is bittersweet and perhaps the one that resonates the most with new beer drinkers. And then for the seasoned folk, there is the Abbey tipple, a strong beer that has a lovely lingering peppery taste. And of course, the food menu supplements the beers really well with snacks, barbecue options as well as signature grills that will make you want to stick around for a long and indulgent time.
What’s not to love about this place? Its décor theme is the Beatles and it has around six brews on offer for its patrons. And if there is one thing that Bangalore loves more than beer, its craft beer! So, at the Yellow Submarine, you can start off with their regular wheat beers, the Dunkel or the Kolsch – personal favourite being the Kolsch which combines the goodness of a lager and an ale. Then there is the Imperial Stout as well as the English Style Extra Special Bitter, which can take some getting used to. Also always ask for the seasonal brews that may be on the menu and you could be in for a surprise.

Six beers on tap and seasonal one to boot as well when the occasion arises. They have the Belgian Wit, which is the best to start with and of course the Hefeweizen which follows closely. The Dunkel is a good one to nurse and if you want a really light one, then the Pale Ale is the one to go for. The Mango Cider, if it is still on tap can take some getting used to but for those who love those flavours, this works perfectly well. The food menu keeps the beers good company and you have a lot to choose from.

Converting an old factory and a manufacturing unit into a brewery in a mill-like setting, XOOX Brewmill has not one but three floors of food and drinks to be enjoyed. The brewery will offer 6 - 8 styles of craft beers to be available on tap soon.
