5. Gateway Brewing Company

gateway

Three passionate brewers with a single aim — to brew great beer using local ingredients — started this microbrewery in Dombivli in 2011. But you can sample their brews in a few pubs across Mumbai such as British Brewing Co, 3 Wise Monkeys, The Irish House, The Bombay Canteen, Smaaash, The Good Wife and more.

Must-try: White Zen which is a wheat beer with a hint of clove and banana drawing inspiration from how Germans like their beer. A1 – India Pale Ale is another favorite with a heady aroma of citrus and pine. This single malt and hop beer is for those who like their ale slightly bitter.

6. Royal Oak Brewery

With so many breweries coming up in Mumbai, can Navi Mumbai be far behind? You will find all things beer in this place, barrel-shaped booths, beer quotes on the walls and a playlist to match your mood. They also have a big screen to show matches. Sample the beers in cutting chai tumblers before you take your pick from their extensive range.

Must-try: Rice Blond and Rye Ale for their robust flavors. They also have coffee stout which will remind you of Guinness and for those who don’t like the bitter taste of beer, they also have peach flavored beer.
