Count on the Germans to celebrate the best things in life. But Bangaloreans just need an excuse to celebrate the world’s largest Volksfest a.k.a, find Oktoberfest. The 16 to 18 days long festival held annually in Munich, Germany, is a celebration of food and beer where more than 7 million litres of beer are served. Talk about fun!


To revel with our German friends, we thought we’d share some of the great places to be during the festival right here in Bangalore for some of the best beers in town!


The brick-walled, hearty and rusty microbrewery is famous for its naturally crafted beer that has turned this place into the most sort out waterhole for beer lovers in Bangalore. The popular Tintin Toit, some chicken wings and Toit’s famous wood fire pizzas are everything you need to kick off the Oktoberfest with a bang. With a mission to make this world a happier and boozier place, Toit offers tempting stouts, malts, ales, lagers and other refreshing beers. Head out to this energetic paradise at Indiranagar and soak in some live music as you chug in one of the most delectable brews in the city.



The Biere Club

If this is your first tryst with The Biere Club, you might end up looking like a kid lost in a candy store. The first craft brewery in Bangalore, The Biere Club has its own unparalleled charm! The finest of ingredients are brewed in the purest traditional method, making it an experience you should not miss. Add some meatballs tossed in hot tomato salsa, The Biere Club Plank Pizza and your taste buds would be on cloud nine. Head out to this rusty ambient pub at Lavelle Road, and you’d be welcomed with stand-up comedy shows, live music sessions, and of course, some of the best beers in town.

Long wooden benches, large steel brewing tanks along the wall, beer coloured walls and some great beer! A perfect recipe to an excellent microbrewery.

And once the beer is on hand, try the Baked Mac & Cheese and The Flaming Chicken, and you can thank us later for the best time of your life.
