Gateway Brewing Co. has, for sometime now, been known as one of the industry leaders in the business of iconic craft beers. After supplying its amazing beers in Pune & Mumbai, Gateway has now ventured into the culinary F&B space with its flagship venture – Gateway Taproom in BKC, Mumbai.
The perfect way to put this place in a post is that it is truly – A Gateway To a wider range of classic and experimental craft beers brewed at Gateway Brewing Co. combined with some classy and delectable food along with a decor that will make you want to settle down at that place forever!
The amazing thing about the beers at Gateway is that they are brewed with locally grown malt and unique ingredient infusions. Along with their flagship brews like the White Zen, Doppelganger, Side Car and Flip Flop White IPA, Gateway Taproom will also offer a range of exclusive and experimental brews via their Explorer Tap. To begin with they will bring back Kaapi Stout, Lost Monday and a new Belgian style Dark Ale called Monks Potion along with ‘as Vienna as it gets’ – their Vienna style lager. All the beers that I tried was a unique experiment in itself and I recommend that you initially get their “Flight Of Beers”, post which you can get glasses and glasses of the one you love!
The food menu at Gateway has been curated by Executive Chef Consultant, Viraf Patel and includes dishes that are inspired by and complement the beers and is sure to make your dining experience at the taproom memorable.
They have options of veggies, seafoods and meats that they BEER BATTER FRY and serve along with two of their signature dips. I, no points for guessing, got the Bombay Duck and the Prawns and both were fried and seasoned to absolute perfection.
The Shrimp Tortellini is another must have from their menu!
The vegetarians must absolutely try the Meatless Shephard’s Pie which tastes just as good as a fabulous meat Shephard’s Pie.
The carnivores must go for the Malt Glazed Salmon, the Pressed Lamb and the best of the lot – Prawn & Barley Risotto.
Don’t forget to end your meal with their amazing Chocolate Stout Cake and then, dont forget to thank me for it! 😛
All in all, Gateway Taproom is absolutely everything that a brewery and food place should be! With food, beers and a decor that compliment each other perfectly, this one is a winner already!
Until next time….
