There is no denial to the fact that we love our beer and Gurugram Beer Week is just way to celebrate this love affair.
Breweries, VIPs, abundant beer events and all things sudsy, it as a 8 day event fuelled with beer. The highlight is the Beer Crawl, slated to be an energizing exploration of Gurugram’s night life with vibrant fellow pub-trotters like never before where guests will be able to mingle with the personalities behind the craft beers being served. From barley to wheat to corn, rice and rye, you can taste it all while feeding on some knowledge about the beers.
Talking about the master brewer, Ishan Grover is the man who realised his passion for beer and opted for the world’s coolest art of making spirit. With his masters in Food and Beverage Science, which broadened his horizon and with his expertise in Brewing and Distilling from International Centre of Brewing and Distilling at Heriot Watt University, Scotland, his only objective is to create awareness about the art of brewing and take the craft brewing industry to the next level. Currently, he manages a vast portfolio of over clients, including the Manhattan Group that operates 6 brewpubs in Gurgaon. According to Ishan, India is a virgin market where people are less aware of quality beer and the biggest challenge is to educate the consumer about quality beers.
Now, talking about the gems or the watering holes that help us enjoy the best beers, we have
