Brew code: Our guide to craft beer takeaways in Bengaluru
We pick our favourite craft beers in the city, from Toit to Windmills Craft Works
The pandemic and lockdown may have put a damper on most Bengalureans' favourite activity - enjoying a craft beer in our favourite brewery. But our breweries are not one to sit back! Most of the city's breweries are offering beer takeaways in growlers. Since it is International Beer Day on August 7, we at Indulge decided to pen down our guide to the best craft beer takeaways available in Benglauru:
