Brewery Tour at Barleyz - By Burrp

Beer ?  

Who doesn't love beer ?

"Oktoberfest" is celebrated this month by making special beer for all the beer lovers. It is a 16-day festival running from late September to the first weekend in October with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year

Beer is tastier than water :-) and that is what i believe in coz its the world's most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, and is the third-most popular drink overall, after water and tea.

The process of making beer is known as brewing. A dedicated building for the making of beer is called a brewery, though beer can be made in the home and has been for much of its history. A company that makes beer is called either a brewery or a brewing company. The purpose of brewing is to convert the starch source into a sugary liquid called wort and to convert the wort into the alcoholic beverage known as beer in a fermentation process effected by yeast.

Thanks to Burrp for inviting me over to celebrate Oktoberfest at Barleyz, one of the amazing brewery in Bangalore. We were introduced to the brew master, Mr Mallieswaran.

He took us through of their brewery system and the process of making beer at Barleyz. He is in this field for the last 25 years and just then found out that we both are from the same city :-) Barleyz have a two micro brewery which has a capacity of 500 lts and are placed on the roof top with adequate shelter. The first container is where the initial crushing take place and then it is transferred to the second container for mixing and filtration process. Once the second container finishes its job, the batch is again transferred to the first container where it undergoes the heating process. This entire process takes about 8 hours to complete. These completed batches are then sent to the final 1000 lts containers, located behind the bar for the end process. Two batches at the micro brewery will fill up one container. This is the process that makes sure that we get tasty beer. Here the final removal of yeast, fermentation, etc takes place. Barleyz have 10 1000 lts beer containers to make sure that all their customers never feel the short of alcohol on any given day (except dry days).

The fest is all about BEER and FOOD. So let me start by showing you beers :

Barleyz Special

My personal fav was Barleyz Special as it wasnt too strong and not that bitter to taste. 

We had fun with all the beer tasting, good food and dance and not to forget the Burrp Special Quiz :-) Barleyz has always been my favorite place for a rooftop dine.
