White Owl Brewery:
Mumbai-based White Owl Brewery is set to launch its Award-Winning Craft Beer in Bottles to significantly expand the availability of its handcrafted brews across the country. This move will complement White Owl Brewery’s existing footprint in Maharashtra. The Company currently distributes up to 8 varieties of its craft beer – On Tap and more recently in India’s first-ever Kegger (a 5-Litre Portable Keg) – at over 70 renowned restaurants & bars across Mumbai & Pune.
White Owl Brewery’s quick expansion over the last two years bears testament to India’s rapidly-growing beer market where the evolution of beer has been fuelled by the preponderance of microbreweries and brewpubs across the country. Craft Beer is now enjoying robust growth and is considered to have brought about a revolutionary change in the drinking habits of Indian consumers. There is no shortage of experts who predict that in the next 10 years, India will see a craft beer revolution larger than that in the United States or Europe. As such, White Owl Brewery’s Coming soon in Bottles as well which enables it to not only enter the substantially larger Retail Segment, but also expand its existing presence within Restaurants/Bars and consequently cater to strong & growing consumer demand across all sales channels in India. Bottles are expected to be launched in Pune in quick succession after Mumbai and for White Owl Brewery will continue expanding into select urban markets in Western, Northern and Southern India.
With its beer soon being available in three formats (On Tap, in Keggers and in Bottles), White Owl Brewery is giving its patrons the unique opportunity to enjoy its craft beer pretty much anywhere. Bottles of White Owl Beer will make their way to the smallest of neighbourhood bars and into any fridge at home. With White Owl Brewery Keggers, the experience of house parties and weddings will continue to be elevated. Keggers do more than just boast a sharp aesthetic appeal; they are uniquely designed to retain beer freshness and are fun-sized for easy storage. And of course, White Owl Brewery will continue to expand its On Tap presence across the country where beer lovers and aficionados can enjoy its entire portfolio of award-winning, handcrafted brews at their favorite watering holes.

I was invited for the beer tasting at Raasta café Baner.
Beers for tasting:
Spark – Delicate, refreshing & citrusy Belgian Wit
Diablo – Crisp, roasty Irish Red Ale
Ace – French Apple Cider
My personal liking goes for Diablo: Strong enough to keep the taste tingling for a long time on the taste buds. Perfect for any given occasion with yummy bar bites from Raasta Cafe.
Second liking would go for the Spark: As it had some hints of citrus which gave the beer a refreshing taste. It’s just the next big thing on the menu.
The last resort would be Ace an delicate French apple Cider. Although I am not much fan of ciders, light on the taste. This can go with nice hot and spicy or Cheesy Bar bites.
Along with Beers I also tried some Bar Bites from the Menu.
Nachos: Crispy Corn Nachos with Tomato salsa, Beans and Homemade Cheese Sauce. Perfectly goes with Diablo Beer.
Chilly Tamarind Grilled Paneer Kebab: Sweet and Tangy Paneer Cubes grilled in an Indian Clay Oven. Goes well with Spark Beer.
Contadina Pizza: Fresh Tomato Sauce with Good amount of Mozzarella, Jalapeno, Finely cut mushrooms, Olives, Broccoli flowerets, and Sun dries Tomatoes. Perfect for the Ace Beer.
