The Barking Deer Brewpub – Your answer to MacLaren’s Pub

Have you been to The Barking Deer Brewpub, Lower Parel? We sure that’s a yes considering this was the first brewery in Mumbai and has been around for 3 years now. And if you’ve been here then have you tried their Flying Pig Belgian Wit beer with the delectable finger food? That’s probably the quickest yes we’ve ever got.

Located in the mill area of Mumbai, The Barking Deer Brewpub has an industrial look and is modeled akin English pubs. One look and we couldn’t help but draw parallels to MacLaren’s Pub (a big shout out to all the HIMYM fans). With a menu revised every year (November to be specific) and additions to their existing list of brews, we couldn’t help but sample their updated menu. And to be honest, this recent trip to The Barking Deer Brewpub has been nothing short of a delight. Armed with the loyalty card by QuickPerks and relishing on some meat, fish and host of their latest brews, nothing could have lifted our mid-week blues better than these winners.

Succulent chicken and cheddar wrapped in juicy bacon tossed in beer. These are four chunky pieces of heaven melting in your mouth. Warning: This could get messy. Seasoned Korean Chicken is battered fried chicken with unique flavours; a great accompaniment for your fresh brew. The king prawns done to perfection with butter, garlic and basil. While we notice garlic overpowering in dishes such as this one, but this was refreshing. We could easily distinguish each flavour in every bite of our Butter Garlic Drunken Prawns.

If you are craving for paan after your drinking binge, try the Paan Pannacotta. A dash of paan in this Italian custard is simply delicious. Another winner for us is the Chocolate Brownie with double cream and beer reduction. The one problem we’ve always had with brownie is it being to dry for our palate. However, Chef Ashwin gets it right here. The right amount of gooeyness and moisture make this near perfect for us. The Barking Deer Tiramisu that boasts of having a hint of beer lends some shock factor, but that’s about it.

If you don’t feel too experimental, then dive into the regulars such as nachos, fish fingers, pizzas and the works. Now, making life much easier is the loyalty card and exciting offers offered by QuickPerks. Read more about it HERE.
