Just because Oktoberfest is canceled this year doesn’t mean you aren’t stocking up on craft beer. If you’re still in the mood to keep the party going, even indoors, craft beer brands and special menus tell you how
With a motto “Go all craft and preservative-free”, Effingut Breweries offers a menu of beers and entrees with a new starter: sold out cereal pretzels. While Effingut brews the usual Oktoberfest beer called Marzen every year, they launched Effingut 2 Go across Maharashtra and have a selection of craft beers to choose from. I found the Sorachi Ace Saison particularly tasty. If you are hosting beer pong at home, they also have microwave ready meals to go with your drinks. There is a party.
Available: At Effingut 2 Go outlets in Mumbai and Pune.
Mumbai microbrewery Crafters launched its very first beer growing station this month, which offers seven flavors of draft beers available in take-out growlers. Growlers are pressurized containers that hold freshly brewed craft beer. If your game night is looking for a cool cucumber lager or a fruity Hefeweizen, this is it.
Available: On order via www.crafterscraftbeer.in or via WhatsApp and Call. The on-the-go growler can also be picked up at Andheri’s point of sale.
Hammer & Song Lager Oktoberfest
Cuffe Parade’s Hammer & Song has a craft beer menu that offers plenty of options to accompany your meal, as well as Oktoberfest, a traditional German-style lager from Helles. Think fried chicken-fries-with some interesting weekend dips and an old-school lager to drink.

Yes, it’s so much fun going out to a brewery, but staying in bars is not a good idea right now. If you don’t like your beer too light, BeeYoung is a strong beer crafted with a punchy taste. Pairing it with hefty snacks for a well-earned binge binge night looks like a shot you wouldn’t want to skip.
