Worst Draught Beer You Can Drink

Drunk In Denial @ Koli Seafood Festival '09

Without a doubt, the worst draught beer available is the kind you get at restaurants like Pop Tate’s, Red Box, Fuel, Jughead’s and every other place which serves those one-on-one-free mugs/pitchers. There’s a bloody good reason places like Alfredo’s (Juhu) and Temptation (Bandra) and a lot of cool bars you know don’t have these one-on-one-free schemes.

Royal Challenge is a good beer but their draught, if not flat, is horribly screwed up in some other way. You might’ve had several pitchers of beer and been wasted but RC’s draught will fuck you up in some crazily twisted way. And the worst thing is these sick places serve you this “draught beer” chilled, hoping you won’t notice and will guzzle it down without complaining because there’s a free one coming up.

As much as I love draught beer and free stuff, I’ve returned pitchers to the Pop Tate’s staff and have complained to the management (in different branches across Mumbai). Managers at most of these places either have nothing to say in the beer’s defence or simply state that’s the way the beer is and that no one else complains. Since I don’t break glass on people’s heads anymore, I ask for bottled stuff and get back to the evening.

This is what happens when one man (Vijay Mallya) monopolizes the alcohol scene in the country and this is why we should promote deserving foreign brands by consuming more of their booze. Balls to Foster’s, by the way.

Looking forward to small breweries springing up and giving the thirsty people of this nation an actual choice. Remember one thing – there’s no such thing as free beer. Don’t believe me? Have some free pitchers at one of the places blacklisted above and see.

    this is a fact. Many of the college students and yuppies can’t figure the flatness and strangeness in the draughts that are served in these places. And i get sick of the beer after two glasses. Well, Varathora I feel that people have no complaints as they are either too naive or don’t really care ’bout the beer as long as the ‘coolness’ of the place, and ‘been seen with or without chicks’ rubs onto to them.

    Interesting thing would be serving them the same, pitcher by pitcher at home. If they still don’t complain then, Varathora, I leave them unto your mercy.

    It’s a scam. “Royal Challenge” is a very good beer and even their draft beer is good.

    But they send beer that goes bad to all your “Pop Tates” and “Red Box” and where not. The bad beer is thus disposed off, in your unaware liver instead of down the drain. The public flocks to these restaurants during “happy hours” for 1+1 free booze.

    As for people who claim to like it, they’d drink chilled urine if pubs served it free.

    Works for everyone – beer companies happy – mediocre restaurants happy – ignorant public happy.

    This article is funny to the core. I can understand the anger when he complains to the manager, these jerks live in utopia & suffer from the “if nobody is having a problem then its good”. I think “bandar kya jaane adrak ka swaad” was written with the manager and his horde in mind. It’s a pity that you don’t break bottles on their head. As a teetoller, I would like to know is the situation so worse (ref: Mallya)? Aren’t Heineken, Cobra good?

    Heineken and Cobra are good but nothing special, really. Vijay Mallya has fucked a lot of things up. Britto’s at Baga Beach, Goa, serves only Kingfisher beer. Britto’s is a very popular place, and the seafood platter and mixed meat grill there kick ass. The best thing is you can sit back and watch the sunset from Britto’s. But imagine the plight of someone who wants to enjoy the sunset and the seafood platter at Britto’s but dislikes Kingfisher. Britto’s obviously gets their KF stock at extremely low rates and makes a killing off it.

    The phirangs don’t mind trying India’s “most popular” beer and we Indians are used to mediocrity (as far as beer goes, at least), which leaves people like me who’d like something other than KF with my food and sunset. It’s not that I hate KF, I’d just like to have a fucking choice when I’m sitting in one of Goa’s best known restaurants.
