There’s something about freshly brewed beer which the Kingfishers and Budweisers of the world cannot really match up to. So, my love for these micro breweries, landed me at this place.
Hyderabad didn’t have a micro-brewery, till three weeks back and like any other freshly-brewed-beer-deprived-Hyderabadi, we , a group of six, decided to hit this place. Partly because this was the nearest brewery that we hadn’t been to. Barleyz is beautiful and huge, for a roof-top.
Loved the way the food is priced, keeping in mind the VFM factor. Unlike other breweries, Barleyz gives out ‘dressed-up’ vibes. It isn’t laid-back and casual or ‘pub’-ish. The ambiance was more ‘fine-dining’ , but we did not have anything to complain. This place was totally packed on a sunday, so remember to make reservations. Now jumping straight to the the f&b!
Beer is good. GOOD! We didn’t go for the sampler and just ordered one of each kind. All of them had a distinct and different flavor and we loved it. I personally liked the sweeter one of the four. The wit one was also good. It had a sharp distinct taste and all of them were served chilled!
The fries basket was an instant hit. The quantity does real justice to the basket.
The cheesy nuggets were cheesy enough and tasted amazing!
The crusted chicken is something that many restaurants don’t get right and it was the same here. I just felt that the chicken wasn’t tender and more on the chewy side. It was a bit dry too, but my friends seemed to differ in opinion.
Overall, we had a great time! Will surely go back whenever I’m in Bangalore
