BrewDog Mumbai – the First BrewDog Opens in India

Midtown Mumbai, the first ever BrewDog in India, opened on the 14th March. The venue sits in the popular entertainment district of Kamala Mills. The venue boasts 22 taps of craft beer from BrewDog and some guest breweries from India and further afield. Currently the beer is being imported directly from the head brewery in Ellon, Scotland, however plans are being explored to begin brewing at the Nashik plant. 

BrewDog are the self-professed geeks of craft beer. The art, the science, the beauty of beer making is the driving passion of the team behind BrewDog. It’s not just beer, it’s a way of life.  BrewDog started in 2007, the scary and daunting ambition of friends Martin Dickie and James Watt from Aberdeen, born out of boredom at the beer market offering at the time. They were passionate about craft beer and they wanted other people to be too. Now, they are arguably the most famous craft beer brewers in the world as well as the biggest crowdfunded company.  

Currently BrewDog has 53 bars in the UK, six in the USA, 23 in other locations around the world and the new offering in Mumbai, takes that number to 24. They also list a further 11 venues, at home and abroad, which are ‘coming soon’. 

BrewDog even have their eye on the Social Play sector, aware of the significant boost this can give to a modern venue.  A number of their home turf venues host beautiful shuffleboards. The Dublin Outpost and DogTap Ellon both house four 22ft shuffleboards.  Boards can also be found at Leeds, North Street Leeds, Paddington and Tower Hill. 

The Midtown Mumbai venue, with its wrap-around sun terrace, is also proud to offer and amazing variety of meals envisioned by Chef Gaurav Gidwani. The menu blends BrewDog classics (twice fried pork belly, sweet n spicy wings, batter-fried cauliflower and the king of hogs pizza) with Mumbai favourites (loaded Bhajis, black pepper corn tikka, and paneer and butter chicken naan bombs). 

Ace-Aloha Group, which owns the India franchise of BrewDog, plan to open 35 pubs and launch nearly a dozen bottled beer brands over the next four years. Next in the pipline are venues in Pune, Gurugram, Bengaluru and an additional venue in Mumbai.
