Beer hug

India Today - - BUZZ - By Sukant Deepak

In­dia’s largest beer chain, The Beer Café, launched its Chandigarh out­let with the unique idea of a “Brews Cruise” this Jan­uary. With ice-cold draught beer taps and beer tanks, you are in­stantly trans­ported to the Bavar­ian Beer Houses. Guests were taken through a beer ap­pre­ci­a­tion ses­sion to un­der­stand the dif­fer­ent kinds of beers avail­able. Those at­tend­ing were ap­prised about the his­tory of how the bev­er­age was cre­ated. To kick-off the event, ev­ery­body was in­tro­duced to the process of ‘per­fect pour’ for beers fol­lowed by an elab­o­rate beer-tast­ing ses­sion. The first in line was the quirky and re­fresh­ing Hoe­gaar­den draught beer, which boasts of a smooth taste of slight or­ange and co­rian­der. An in­tel­li­gent move, con­sid­er­ing the draught goes easy on the palate. Next was the pop­u­lar Erdinger Dunkel, a smooth and rich wheat beer. In or­der to im­part an un­der­stand­ing of the dif­fer­ence be­tween wheat and lager, the for­mer was com­pared to Stella Ar­tois, a lager beer. A round of fish fin­gers, chicken sa­tay and na­chos were served with the beer. Corona was next in line, which is rea­son­ably light on the palate. The we sam­pled freshly poured from the tap Erdinger draught beer and it com­pletely changed the taste in our mouth. Slightly sweet Kro­nen­bourg 1664 Blanc con­cluded the beer-tast­ing round. The Beer Café of­fers a chance to re­dis­cover the love of beer with its spe­cial PYOB (Pour Your Own Beer) cards, which one can recharge and top up. Rahul Singh, founder and CEO, says, “We hap­pen to be the first in the coun­try to bring over 50 va­ri­eties of beer from around the globe un­der one roof. The essence of this place is to pro­vide an am­bi­ence suit­able for friends and ac­quain­tances to meet over a pint of beer and re­lax. Chandigarh is a promis­ing mar­ket and we are sure that we would en­joy tremen­dous suc­cess here. Very soon, more va­ri­eties of beer would be in­tro­duced. Also, we will have an out­let in Am­rit­sar shortly.” The Beer Café cer­tainly makes sure we have pints to look for­ward to!
