"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" said Ernest Hemmingway. A cottage built singularly for the purpose of making beer, a brewery, is well-nigh a shrine for all beer lovers. A list of complicated processes of fermenting, conditioning, filtering, and finally packaging are all carried out with such pedantic precision to give each beer its own character. It would, then, be quite interesting to know how your beer acquired its quality, wouldn't it? Following is a list of the best breweries in Pune that stand out and are quite famous with people who have an active nightlife -
Independence Brewing Company (Koregaon Park) Known to be the pioneer of micro-brewing culture in India, Independence Brewing Company boasts of an onsite brewery, double-height ceiling, one indoor and two outdoor seating arrangements, which are quite commodious and well detailed. The subtle and elegant design that runs throughout the brewery is well adorned with wooden furniture. Shailendra Bist, the owner/manager of IBC, a professional brewing master from California, hosts evenings every now and then and engages everyone in interesting debates and conversations. The staff is genial and forthcoming. Do not forget to taste the White Zen (a Hefeweizen, i.e., a German wheat based beer), Like That Only (a tribute to Mumbai Summer), and India Pale Ale (founded in 1820s by the British for their troops in India). You can also explore international favourites, such as Bishops Finger Kentish Strong Ale, a silver-medal winner in the Daily Telegraph Taste of Britain Awards. Meanwhile, relish delectable North Indian, American, Mexican, and Continental spreads.
