The store is one of the best places in Bangalore to land a beer. They have a decent selection of Belgian and American crafts (like Orval, St Feuillien, Rogue, Flying Dog, Chimay, Christoffel, (all between Rs 180 and Rs 220) etc along with the normal macro produce. The only downside is that one, the turnover is not very high, so you may get old and dusty bottles and two, staff is not very knowledgeable, so you're on your own. A small blip that you can easily overlook in India, this is the mecca for beer in Bangalore.

Well, all things are relative, right?

This is the best place to find good beer in Bangalore. there are several locations in the city. They have the Belgian line form Nikhil's importing company (Orval, Duvel, Chimay, St Ber., Achel...) and he's getting in some Flying Dog and Rogue.

But....the service is typical Indian. Nice, but not very knowledgeable of the beer. Small selection, but this is India. Not much choice. Cheaper than the restaurants, but still around 280Rps for a Belgian. They do have Guinness and Bud as well.
If you're looking for some good beer, Spencer stores are a good bet.
