An ideal place for after-office sun downers, a pre-dinner aperitif, simply hangout or if you are in the mood for some craft beer and German food

Once inside, the Bavarian ambience makes quite an impression. The décor with its clean lines and Beer Garden theme made me feel every bit the globe-trotting high roller even though for one night. Emphasis here seemed to be on lingering and lounging albeit elegantly so we felt free to recline while taking in the German Micro-Brewery Plant and machinery view and, the large Chestnut trees and brewery lay out completely bowled me over. And well, the sparkle does not end here which I soon realized after looking at the Menu to order some food and drinks. Open until late it offers a collection of the finest beer handcrafter by the German brew-master on site. The restaurant boasts of its quality, unfiltered fresh beers full of Proteins and has on the menu Lager, Wheat, Special and Premium. To start our evening we ordered some Wheat and I would like to add here that it is a must have for any fan of German Food, because it makes a really good food match - and not just for Sausages as you might predict, but for a variety of different foods.

Coming to the food if you are hungry, the menu’s one to return for: everything from the German Potato salad, Salmon platter, pork knuckle to the Schnitzels and scrumptious desserts like Volcanic lava chocolate cake , German Eistorte which is a delicate combination of exotic fresh fruits, ice cream and macaroons has its place. Recommendations go all out for the Original Bratwurst and Munich Sausages, some of the best selections of appetizers which isn’t a wonder as they imports their Sausages’, Meat and Sea food products from Germany, Australia and New Zealand. I had an altogether new epicurean experience! Careful attention to detail, from the palate awakening cocktails right down to the coasters, puts it in a class of its own. From the cocktails of freshly brewed beer dropped on tequila, lemonade, mint chunks to make Brauhaus Refresher, Energy, Shady, Horse, and Mojito as well as the best varieties of Champagnes, Wines, Premium Single Malts, Scotches, Cocktails, Mocktails, Bourbon & Irish Whiskey to the sensational menu, quality and service is paramount- water glasses are magically filled and drinks are presented in sexy glassware. All in all, a luscious drinks list and fast service makes this a great escape from the daily grind- whether you cast yourself into the weekend crush, or slip in midweek for a potion of pow-wow with your friends. This place is heavily guarded by style police so dress up, but once inside slide on to one of the chairs, relax and indulge in one of Gurgaon’s most sophisticated Microbrewery experiences.
