If you see an empty Barrel, what would you wish it to be filled with?
Last weekend, I visited this place, a heaven for Barrel lovers, from wooden to aluminum, small to big, you see barrels of different sizes and shapes, making the whole place elevate a level above. The décor of a place, says a lot, it was happening and comfortable at the same time, and I am talking about Barrel and Co in Andheri about 3.7 kms from the Andheri Station.

The barrel door opens into a spacious spacing, which is usually filled with people dancing all over the place, with a bar at the centre, having its own brewing, filled with international and national brands. There is a cage seating and a private section which can accommodate 20-25 people for private parties and get-together.
Barrel and company has its own brewing, and we tried their Beer tester having the following and here is what my friend felt.
Belgian Wit: The wit is always a star favorite. It’s wheaty and decent for those who don’t like bitter beer.
Hopfenweizen: A bit tangy and really bitter. This one can challenge the pale ale, but not that bitter.
Bavarian bouquet: A German special, this is different from the usual, you have in Brewery outlets. Not on the bitter side.
Strout Coffee beer: There’s a thing about coffee and beer. There’s a taste like never before. It’s tasty and highly recommended.
They are also coming up with apple cider. That’s going to be fruity and will surely be a hit.
In cocktails, my friend tried, Mint Julep:
Whisky based cocktail with mint, lime and sugar. It’s more of a slush based drink and is smooth!
Whisky sour (with egg):
The traditional whisky sour is always a drink to try for any whisky lover. The egg added did enhance its taste. Highly recommended.
In mocktails, I had a Peanut Butter Martini:
A strong taste of peanut butter, along with vanilla and chocolate syrup, its thick, heavy and a must for peanut lovers.
Hot and Spicy Barel:
Quite unique having Wasabi and Litchi, with each sip it gives you the wasabi taste with a spicy after effects.
The boneless bombil as popcorn were crunchy, flavourful and delicious for sure, the Siracha Mayonnaise make it delectable, highly recommended.
Mediterranean Chicken Tikka:
Juicy grilled chicken chunks are served with Cumin Humus in the centre and beet flavoured Pita, which makes it look like a salami.
Prawns Sui Mai:
The translucent dimsums had flavourful prawns on the inside, served with soya and chili soya sauce.
BBQ Smoked Chicken:
The nicely done thin crust pizza with BBQ sauce, cheese was topped with Chicken, Onion and Japaleno. It was slightly sweet and spicy and goes well with the drinks.
The service staff does make or break your experience; Qayyum Shaikh, the ever smiling Assistant relationship manager, did enhance our overall experience, he and his staff were there when needed.
