The first Friday of every August has been deemed International Beer Day and we must comply. With Bengaluru being dubbed the brewery capital of the country, it’s no surprise that pubs across the city have something lined up. This International Beer Day, sign up for beer workshops, participate in a brewery tour or simply take advantage of the special offers.
Wolf Of Crawl Street
Covering some of the most popular haunts around Vittal Mallya Road, this pub crawl is sure to be a wild one. It starts at The Open Box, where you can participate in a pub quiz. From the rooftop venue, the scene shifts to the Biere Club. Sip some of their signature brews while unwinding over some live music. Once you’re through, stop over at an undisclosed location in UB City before heading back home.
