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.
