8 Bangalore Craft Beers To Help You Keep Cool This Summer

breweries-in-mumbai

Summer in Bangalore is getting quite unbelievable. Bangaloreans who have been around for a while know exactly what we mean when we say we haven’t felt anything like this in a really long time. While cold towels and staying in might work, we have another idea for you. How about you try a cold brew to keep you cool this summer?

We give you 8 craft beers that will help you beat the heat.

Fruit Cider at Prost Brew Pub

While technically not beer, it’s close enough, and arguably more refreshing on a hot summer’s day. This apple cider is made using Himachal apples along with seasonal fruits and spices. Don’t be fooled by the fruits, though, as the cider still knocks in at a respectable 5% alcohol content.

Capt Jack Pale Ale at Beer Republic

This golden coloured beer is about as refreshing as they come. Noted for having a hint of honey amongst its fruity aroma, Capt Jack goes down almost too smoothly. It’s light in colour but not in hops so don’t think you’re going to be having just one.

The Biere Club’s Lager

You can’t go wrong with a lager; they’re the most commonly drank beers in the world. Lager comes from the German word “to store” so they always keep well. Clear and crisp, this lager is tried and true, and will surely please the taste buds any day of the week.

Toit Weiss at Toit

If you aren’t familiar with Hefeweizen, then head to Toit next time you need to get a few cold ones in. Once you try this beer, you’ll soon understand why Germans drink so much. It isn’t too often that you find a beer with such a full character that goes down like water. A surprisingly bonus is the strong banana aroma, which despite sounding weird, works remarkably well.

Vapour Shandy at Vapour Pub & Brewery

How can you make a beer more refreshing? Well, you simply select your favourite suds and have it as a shandy. Trust us, the folks down at Vapour have got this down to a tee. Pick a beer and they’ll add the lemonade and ginger. After just one gulp, you’ll know you’ve made a good choice.

Betel Juice Pale Ale at Arbor Brewing Company

Brewed by Arbor in collaboration with members of the Bangalore Brew Crew, Betel Juice couldn’t be a more suiting summer refreshment. Come for the lemongrass and citrus aromas, stay for the betel-leaf aftertaste, all whilst supporting your local craft beer scene.

Good Golly at Murphy’s Brewhouse

It can be hard to make a choice from Murphy’s stacked lineup of brews. However, when it’s this hot out, you need to stick with the Good Golly if you want any relief from the heat. Not too hoppy, not too bitter, not too light, they seem to have found the perfect medium with this one.

Keller Pils at 3 Monkey’s Brewpub

The first and only pilsner on the list isn’t to be missed. It isn’t hoppy, it isn’t bitter, it isn’t heavy, and it tastes like it’s straight out of Germany. It’s hard to find a more clear beer than this. At 5.3% this beer has everything you need for that perfect, distinctive pilsner taste.

    It’s blatantly obvious that the author of this piece hasn’t the slightest of idea what Craft Beer is about or how to go about reviewing flavor profiles. Please don’t write for the sake of writing and take some time to understand the topic first.

      Thank you for your comment. Even though this article isn’t intended as a review of flavour profiles but rather to highlight the local watering holes in Bangalore. We would love to hear what you have to say about craft beer and flavour profiles. You can put up your article here hungryforever.com/write-post

        Your descriptions are off for some of the Beers mentioned. Secondly, some of the brewpubs on this list are producing sub par Brews that are not true to style. Hence this entire post is questionable. If you do your research, you will find out that Hungryforever has already done a story on my take on Craft Beer. My recommendation to you – take some time to understand the basics about Craft Beer before attempting to curate a list. Cheers.
