This a a new Micro Brewery in Chandigarh, where the craze for fresh beer is catching on. Opened by the owners of Hops and Grains in Panchkula, the experience and expertise of the owner and master brewer show, and how!

I visited this restaurant yesterday (14 January 2016) with two of my best friends. We started by sampling the 4 beers available. Selected a pitcher og German Bock first. Excellent! This beer tastes best when taken in large mouthfuls. It has a great deep flavor, short of stout and excellent aroma and aftertaste. Next came a pitcher of Weiss Beer. This is served with a large wedge of a native orange. Guys, this is not a gimmick like putting a slice of lemon in Corona beer for no good reason. Leave it in there and enjoy a splendid beer.

The menu is very well presented. It is small and adequate- no complications in figuring out what you want to eat even when tipsy.

Starters- we ordered Mezze- Non Veg platter. The grilled chicken was outstanding and the rest was very good, including the Hummus and dressings. Low on salt, so flavours really come through.

In the main course, the pot chicken with roots was superb. Rest of the Indian food is as good as anywhere else, so when you visit, go for the continental stuff like baked chicken etc.

The ambiance is great, done in warehouse type look. Plenty of seating area in the main pub, restaurant and behind the brewery too. Music volume is just right to be enjoyable and allow conversations. Top notch sound from Bose speakers! The washrooms area needs some partitions in there! Coasters kept sticking to the beer mugs so need to be perforated.

Service is excellent and quick, perhaps over enthusiastic. A waiter filled a glass that had been used for a different type of beer, but replaced it with a new one.

On the whole- too good.
