The Barking Deer, Mumbai's eagerly anticipated microbrewery, is set to bring Mumbai into New Delhi's, Bangalore's, Gurgaon and Pune's near exclusive bear brewing club as construction continues despite obstructions from local laws. Party goers and diners alike will share freshly brewed, local beverages – a stark contrast from the rising rate of imported beer.

Opposite blueFROG in Lower Parel, increasingly Mumbai’s favourite drinking district, frenetic activity hauls up the pillars of what will be The Barking Deer—Mumbai’s first microbrewery and restaurant. In distant Dombivli, The Gateway Brewing Co., a hobby-turned-business venture, is gearing up to supply kegs of three to four different kinds of beer to pubs across town.


Mumbai is finally catching up with the hearty party centres of beer-producing New Delhi, Bangalore, Gurgaon and even Pune. These are but two local breweries that are expected to roll out indigenous brands of craft beer, which will add to the surfeit of imported brands that have become available in India.
