GPB –This lager beer is a modern twist on the traditional â€˜Pilsnerâ€™ styled brew. Balancing the flavors of this delicate beer is truly an art unto itself. The distinctive flavor of hops and malt give way to a crisp, yet slightly dry beer.
BANGALORE DAZE -The perfect blend of citrus hops and pale ale malts combined to create this well-balanced, crisp and delicious IPA. Each sip gives rise to the delicate flavors of pine and honey that is sure to leave you wanting more.
SOUL SURFER -Â This modern Hefewissen is brimming with flavor to sooth the soul. A heavy bodied hazy citrus nectar, combined with notes of orange peel and coriander giving way to the perfect balance of mild bitterness and light sweetness. The ideal beer for a summer day.
BLACK PEARL -The silky, smooth, almost seductive feel of this dark beer, enhanced with a heady combination of chocolate, coffee, caramel and lactose gives rise to the perfect blend of this mildly sweet stout. This complex combination packs quite a punch of flavors.
Pizzas are the perfect accompaniment to delicious brews, and the Quattro Stagioni is no different. Cooked in a wood-fired oven, topped with feta, and stringy mozzarella, your teeth all but sink into the perfectly-baked base. Strips of zucchini, artichokes, roasted peppers, and olives add their individual tastes, elevating this simple crowd pleaser.
The Bartender made a Special Cocktail with Red Wine, Gin and some secret ingredients. Tasted great with a nice presentation. Other mocktails and cocktails were equally good.
There was also Live Music performed by Neetu Shah which made us groove to the music.
