Old Airport has a new place for brewery for all the beer lovers, Big Pitcher has opened up on Old Airport Road in Bangalore and is one of the largest craft brewery in Bangalore which is 6 floors tall.Been in the news for their daily events 7 days a week.
After 6 months from their inception ,The fresh brews on tap are Adjust Maadi (Hop Twisted Dry Hefeweizen), Czech that pilsner (Wild Cat Slav Lager), Sarava! (suspiciously Brazilian Witbier), Kingslayer (Medieval Dark Wheat Ale) and Hop Witch (Single-Hop mutating ale).Brewmaster Luiz Fernando Pizzani was kind enough to have a brewery tour and also explained the process behind naming each beer and the entire process of brewing.
Personally I liked Adjust Maadi which is Hop Twisted Dry Hefeweizen. This a blend of Pilsner & Pale Wheat Malt, Waimea (dry-hopped – adding fresh hops to the maturation tanks for that extra punch) New Zealand hops and German Wheat Beer Yeast. It pairs best with Pizza, Salads, Thaifood, Seafood pasta and greasy dishes!
The Dish of the night was the samundri rattan ka lal quilla. This is a lobster roasted on a tandoor and served in a fantastic manner!
Another highlight was the martabban tandoori crab along with malai jhinga prawns. The chef Roshan Paully, who had worked with Bukhara in ITC Maurya in Delhi, has joined here at Big Pitcher so they ensure that in food department too, they are always the best and biggest!
Being a vegetarian, I liked dal bukhara which is slow cooked lentils for more than 24 hours inside a pot on a tandoor stove, not gas stove! What an amazing taste it had!
It was wonderful to have such an amazing gastronomical evening with Head Brewer Luiz, corporate chef Roshan Paully and Vice President (Operations) Raghuram M. Looking forward to exploring more of Big Pitcher as it has more than 3 amazing menus spread across 6 floors!
