Shortlisting The Best Breweries in Mumbai

If there’s one thing that the popularity of beer in Mumbai has taught us, it is the fact that Mumbai absolutely loves a good beer.

In the city, you are most likely to find beer at almost every pub or bar, but somehow most of these just do not cut it. Luckily, the city is home to some of the best breweries in the country, and they’re doing a fabulous job at crafting them. If you are looking to enjoy a good tipple in Mumbai, these are the best breweries to enjoy craft beer in the city. 


Located in Lower Parel, the place is always crowded in the evenings. You’ll often find the young working crowd of Parel hopping in to grab a quick mug of beer, post working hours. The brewery has a relaxing ambience, they play old school retro music for most days, and serve a fun lineup of beer on tap. You can choose between small, large glasses or pick a tower if going with friends or colleagues. Top picks here are the Basmati Blonde, Dark Knight, and the Bavarian Wheat Ale. They do have special flavours of brewed beer, often, but it is not on the menu. You’ll have to check with the bartender for availability.
