International Beer Day: 5 Microbreweries In Delhi You Must Visit

Beer-holics, it is your day today! Today you have the perfect excuse to grab that glass and chug, chug, chug. It is International Beer Day today. Beer is one of the most beloved alcoholic beverages around the world. Now, beers are of many types. Whether you like lager, ale, porter or stout, you want it to be just perfect. This is why you need more places that know how to brew their beer right, and thankfully, there are plenty of such microbreweries in Delhi-NCR, and the numbers are only increasing. Microbreweries and their home-grown beers are changing the beer culture of Delhi and how, and if you wish to break away from the usual three-four brands, you get at every standard pub, then you should definitely give these places a try. Here are some of our top picks.  

1. Deja Brew

This newly opened brewery in GK 2’s M Block market has already become the talk of the town for their craft beers. Whether you like your beer strong or mellow, you would not be disappointed. Travel Belgium, Germany and the UK, one sip at a time with their delectable brews like Hefeweizen, Belgian Blonde, Neipa, Indian Pale Ale, and Stout. We also like some of the fruity, beer concoctions that they have included in their menu. Tell them the kind of drink you are looking for, and they are happy to serve you beer to suit your mood.

Gurugram is a haven for beer lovers and while the rest of NCR is doing a good job in catching up, we have to say, we are a little partial towards the classics like Vapour Bar Exchange.

5. Soi 7 And Pub Brewery

Great food, even better drinks and an ambience that screams party! There’s a reason why Soi 7 continues to be one of the most beloved pubs in DLF Cyber Hub, and refuses to leave its seat. We are absolute fans (read: loyalists) of its flavoured craft brews. Besides the wheat, dark, and premium, they also have something called the Bolo Punch, which is a Marzen Beer (translation: March Beer), a German-style of beer, with a medium to full body. Ideal for days you are looking for something slightly stronger.
