Into the City
A new microbrewery, a dessert stop, Chinese food haven and more.
BEER ENTHUSIASTS HAVE reasons to rejoice as the city now has its first microbrewery in a five-star hotel. With European-inspired interiors, 35 Brewhouse in JW Marriott spells class. You can choose between the warm and earthy interiors inside or the private cabanas outside with a food truck adding to the appeal.
However, the USP of the space are the copper-tinted brewery tanks. The good news is that the microbrewery conforms to Reinheitsgebot-German Beer Purity Law which ensures that the drink is chemical free. Choose between the five variants including Indian Pale Ale, German Lager, Hefe-Weizen, Strong Wheat and the unique Master's Brew —a Jägermeister beer made with 56 herbs.
“Our beers are matured naturally for 18 to 21 days without filtering. This allows the beer to retain their natural, malty texture,” says Kumar Gaurav, brewing consultant at JW Marriott Chandigarh, adding that apart from craft beers, beer-based cocktails and spirits are also available. The handcrafted brews are prepared with the choicest of malts, hops and yeast procured from Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, US and UK
Keeping you company with your beer are some lip-smacking food options including prawn spring roll, chilli chicken dimsum and Chinese bhel. Our favourites are the bratwurst sausage, quinoa cake sun dried pesto and the cashew nut pakoras. And if you have a sweet tooth, don't miss the Beeramisu, a beery twist to the Tiramisu and for the somber souls there is a coffee and oatmeal cheesecake. Our favourite however was the open palm.
