Country’s largest brewery opens

Country’s largest brewery opens

Byg Brewski on Hennur Road is ideal for a romantic night out.

It’s been a few months since Byg Brewski in Hennur opened in the city. You may think that it’s just another addition to the pub city but this brewery is a special one. It’s the largest microbrewery in the country!

Spread over 65,000 square feet, it’s a beautiful location to be spending your evenings at. As for the ambience, it gives out you a Medieval Scottish vibe or can even remind you of an amphitheatre set up. But if you’re someone who relates to the 90’s, you might feel like are part of a popular obstacle course game show.

We went there on a weekday and it was quite full for a working day. Most of the guests were working professionals and couples. Reserving a table is a must here.

The open-kitchen concept was an added bonus to the gorgeous ambience. But unlike other open kitchens, this one is a silent one.

Having said that, if you are in a hurry or don’t have too much time to spend, this might not be the place for you. The servers are prompt and attentive to your calling but the wait for food is quite tiresome.

Everything from finger food, North Indian, Italian and Continental food is available here.

The Chilli Cheese Spring Rolls is a great way to start your dining experience. The burst of molten cheese with explosive Naga chillies and herbs goes well with your drinks.

If you really want to get your party started, the Karari Roti is recommended. It’s their signature snack — a thin crispy roomali roti smeared with masala. It’s a fun appetiser to have on your table and just the right kind of crunchy element you need to get the conversations going. Warning: if it is windy, keep an eye out for the roti — it’s a pro at flying away!

The Mutton Keema Sambousek is a Middle Eastern samosa that’s made with a golden pastry crust and filled with a duet of spicy mince and cheese. It’s served with a mint dip and a good option to have as an appetiser.

We also tried their speciality baos. While the filling was good, the bao sticking to your teeth and mouth was a put-off for us. If you don’t want to spend time cleaning your mouth after every bite, we recommend you to skip it all together.

The non-veg platter is probably one of the best options to have here. You get a mix of everything you need, all of them grilled and tandoori style. However, some of the meat items, after you’ve had a couple of pieces, will soon taste unappetising. Maybe a variety of dips would make the dish a complete winner.

There were options to try in pasta, burger and pizza but we decided to check out the Pan-Asian and Indian dishes as part of the main course.

The Wok-Tossed Exotic Vegetables was a good dish that you can enjoy either on its own or with noodles and rice. The Pork Ribs in barbecue sauce had a succulent flavour to it that would make you want to go back for more.

As for the Indian dishes, we liked the choice of roti and naans available. The Tandoori Khamiri Roti was our favourite.

We also tried the Pepper Crusted Tenderloin Steak which we thought could have been better. While the steak was well cooked and the
red wine reduction paired well with it, the grilled mushrooms and creamy mash was a letdown.

There’s an interesting mix of desserts also to opt from. We didn’t think that the Tres Leches did justice to the sponge. The Tiramibrew de la Casa, the classic Italian tiramisu infused with their signature craft brews, was a winner. It was rice in flavour and just the perfect way to end the night.

Byg Brewski Brewing Company is located on Hennur Baglur Road, opposite XLR8 Indoor Stadium, Visthar. For reservations, call 39514766.
