Beer Appreciation @ Woodside
Zane Furtado is a complete beer buff. He even boasts of a degree in Fundamentals in Brewing and Packaging from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD), London and runs the page Beer Me Out. Last night he attended a beer tasting on behalf of Gigglewater411. You can find him on twitter @zanefurtado. Enjoy his post.
Woodside All Day Bar & Eatery along with All Things Nice organized a Beer Tasting session at the Andheri branch.
On the menu were six beers from the most popular beer drinking nations of the world:
- Erdinger – Germany
- Asahi – Japan
- Brooklyn Lager – USA
- London Fuller Pride – England
- Murphy’s Irish Stout – Ireland
- Liefmans Fruitesse – Belgium
The tasting was conducted by Nikhil Agarwal, owner of All Things Nice who took us through the history of beer and beer making. Beer lovers were introduced to concepts of malting and kilning as he explained the importance of the bitterness of hops and how water plays an important role in the final taste of the beer.
The most interesting part was the much needed education on the difference between an ale and a lager and the hundreds of varieties of beer available across the globe – Trappist, stout, cider, lambic, dunkel, pilsner, wheat, organic etc.
Mumbai could certainly use some more of these sessions to introduce Indian beer lovers to the different kinds of brews available in Mumbai and give them a better understanding of how their favourite beer is made.
Whoever said appreciation is only limited to wine!
You can catch their next session on Friday, February 10, 2012 from 7:30pm until 9:00pm at Woodside All Day Bar and Eatery, Andheri, Shop No. 11/12, Link Plaza Co-Op Soc, New Link Road, Oshiwara, Andheri (West), Mumbai, India.
The event will be priced at Rs. 995 per person.
