The Indian craft beer industry is fairly new and our palates are still adjusting to the new flavour profiles, after years of gulping Kingfisher in the name of beer! Recently, Bombay’s first microbrewery launched a cider – Shimla Golden Cider, to celebrate their 3rd anniversary. That’s been one of the highlights of my week 🙂

Happy Anniversary, The Barking Deer!

The Barking Deer has been a pioneer in the Indian craft brewing industry and it only took me one visit to the brewery  (3 years ago) to start raving about their fresh brews, and I have not stopped yet! They celebrated their 3rd anniversary with the launch of the wonderful cider along with a week long ‘League of Extraordinary Burger Festival’. Now, that’s how you kick off a celebration! A specially curated handcrafted burger menu and fresh brews – what’s not to love!

One of the extraordinary burgers

If cider is your poison, The Barking Deer is here to your rescue. The Shimla Golden Cider is made with only the choicest apples from Himachal Pradesh. Its deep, rich golden ruddy colour is that of the apples picked in their prime and its tart finish balances out the robust fruity body. Go, grab a pint! Cheers!

Cheers to Shimla Golden Cider!
