The pub capital of India is also known for its microbreweries. Those who are fond of craft beer (brewed beer) or dark beer in the city should visit these places. Bangalore over the last few years has produced many microbreweries for the craft beer lover. We recommend pairing the craft beer along with some scrumptious dishes at these places too.
