Tis’ summer season and our life amidst the hustle and the unforgiving humidity is being ruled by our cravings for a mug of chilled beer and any point of the day seems like the right time!
We’re craving for some beer-lovin’ and we’re sure you are too because we need no rhyme or reason to actually chug a pitcher, be it a Friday evening or a Monday noon. At the end of the day, always remember YOLO!
So keeping in mind the beery needs of the human heart, we have listed 3 places where you can enjoy your tipple but be cautious. These aren’t the places for your month-end budget because for that, you’ll just have to go with cans and the squad at home!
Among the concrete jungle of BKC, the Gateway Taproom is a welcome sight with premier craft beers and plush interiors. With dark wood and exposed brick walls, this vintage hideaway is where you should be on a Saturday night or just for a casual hangout with colleagues after work.
Drawing inspirations from the culture of beer gardens of Europe, their menu combines international flavours with local ingredients and it acts a portal to the beer world! Their food and drinks are interwoven with culinary finesse and if confused on what to order, let us give you a heads up!
