Three times the fun with craft beer at the Hops Haus outlets in Bengaluru
The 30BB Team gives you a peek into the three Hops Haus experiences across the city.
Bengaluru has been at the head of the craft beer revolution in India. So, it comes as no surprise that the new Hops Haus chain is finding many takers among the city’s beer aficionados. The name Hops Haus is a hat tip to European ale houses, to which this chain attributes its inspiration. Beer enthusiasts get the full beer garden experience, with carefully-sourced hops from around the world. ‘Life is beautiful’ reads the sign as you enter, which perfectly encapsulates their bohemian vibe.
At the open-to-sky oasis that is the Hops Haus Brewery and Kitchen at Whitefield, you can sample their six artisanal brews fresh from the brewery. Try the crowd-pleasers such as the Witty Belgian, a Belgian Wit-style beer bursting with tropical notes, and the Basmati Bounty, a grainy rice lager teasing the senses with hints of herbs and a sweet lingering finish. Stout fanatics will be drawn to the Ol’ Smoked Stout, featuring roasted cocoa and coffee aromas with creamy flavours and subtle smoky notes that lead to a heady mocha, chocolatey finish.
Venture to the vibrant neighbourhood of Indiranagar and immerse yourself in the taproom experience at Hops Haus’s second outlet. This trendy establishment features an impressive array of draught beer brands on tap, ensuring a diverse selection for beer enthusiasts to explore.
Their unconventional Taproom at Embassy One in North Bengaluru blends a beer destination and a co-working space. This unique place provides the residents of the area a refreshing environment to unwind, connect with like-minded individuals, and savour the remarkable ambience of a beer haven.
Hops and beyond
Apart from their beers, all the Hops Haus outlets also offer classic cocktails. Try the East Side, a refreshing blend of gin and cucumbers, or the Asian Gimlet, a harmonious mix of vodka, lime, and the bar’s secret syrup. For a taste of the exotic, indulge in Whiskey-Briskey, a tantalising fusion of whisky, pineapple, hazelnut, and lime leaf.
Bar bites are sophisticated, ranging from the popular Habanero French Fries with the jalapeno cream dip, to vegetarian Pull Apart Masala Garlic Bread and Nadru ke Goolar (lotus stem kebabs stuffed with rich cheese). Non-vegetarians will enjoy Korean Gochujang Chicken Wings or Prawn Koliwada Pop Corn. Culinary Director Chef Vikas Seth is behind these as well as the extensive menu that complements the craft of the beer.
