Simon says brew, Koramangala

‘Simon says brew’ is a relatively new microbrewery, located right above the very popular Boozy Griffin. I was primarily excited about this place because of its amusing name. The place is split into three sections and has a decent amount of seating. Interiors are very simple; there’s a DJ console and the usual display of beer kettles and fermenters. Reservation is recommended on weekends since it gets quite crowded after 9.

Brooks and Bonds Brewery, Koramangala

I think Brooks and Bonds brewery is our new favorite in Koramangala now. The place offers some very enjoyable brews and delicious grub. It is located on 100 feet road in Koramangala and is spread across multiple floors. There’s plenty of seating available and the outdoor sections get a pleasant breeze. Decor is simple and laid back with basic wood and iron furniture and some funny quips on the stairways.

The Brew and Barbecue, Marathahalli

The count of microbreweries in Bangalore just keeps going up, doesn’t it? I had heard lots of good things about this place called ‘The Brew and Barbecue’ and we visited it for lunch this weekend.

This microbrewery is sprawled across the fourth floor of Soul Space Arena in Doddenakundi and is quite spacious. Decor is simple, but I found the indoor seating a bit dark for lunchtime. We opted to sit outside; this area was bright and airy.

Punjabi By Nature 2.0, BTM

“Punjabi By Nature” has been an old favourite in the family, since it never serves your run-of-the-mill artery-clogging greasy Punjabi food. Food menu here contains a large array of Punjabi dishes and drinks menu is interesting too. There is a microbrewery as well that makes delicious brews.

The restaurant is quite spacious and divided into different sections, all of them beautiful and comfortable. There is a pretty waterfall covered wall here and we took a table near that.

Bangalore Brew Works, Residency Road

Last weekend we visited this beautiful microbrewery called “Bangalore Brew Works”, that had been on my list for ages(I think I say that about a lot of places :)). The place is located on the tenth floor of a commercial building on Residency Road and is a wonderful place to relax & unwind.

We had a reservation and were promptly shown to our table. The place has a very simple decor with solid wood furniture in rich colors. And, though most of the area gets a lovely breeze, there is a section with couches towards the edge of terrace which provides a stunning view of the city.

The Whitefield Arms, Whitefield

The Whitefield Arms is a colonial style pub located in The Waverly Hotel and is attached to VR Bengaluru mall. I was always intrigued by the name of this pub and it seems to have an interesting history indeed(read about it here).

The pub looks striking with dark wood furniture and a beautiful bar counter, black & white being the dominant colours everywhere. We were blown away by the beautiful patio seating and got seated outside to enjoy the lovely evening breeze.

Hoot, Sarjapur Road

I had been frequently working Hoot into our weekend conversations of “where do we go for lunch today?”. Mr. H finally gave in this weekend, and we went there for a late lunch 🙂

Hoot is a massive microbrewery located on Sarjapur Road and is a new addition to the rapidly expanding list of microbreweries in the city. It is spread over a whopping 40000 sq ft and resembles a warehouse or garage from outside.

I had seen some beautiful pictures of its striking ambiance on different websites and blogs, and was looking forward to visiting it.
