Ironhill comes to city

http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper...le23020055.ece

The microbrewery boasts of rich collection of in-house brews
Ironhill, a microbrewery promoted by Bengaluru-based Prost Brew Pub, entered Vijayawada with a swanky outlet at Moghalrajpuram.


It is Ironhill’s second facility in Andhra Pradesh, with the first opened in Visakhapatnam last year.

Announcing the launch, director Teja Chekuri said the Vijayawada branch was spread in 10,000 square feet.

“It brings four different flavours of beer brewed on its premises with top quality raw material. It has a rich collection of cocktails and foods menus,” he said.

“This brand new facility is poised to grow rapidly due to the evolving city culture, and as the floating population is getting bigger with the growing importance of Vijayawada,” Mr. Teja said.

On the customer choices, Mr. Teja said, as a concept, microbrewery was fast catching up across the country and the response had been impressive in A.P., which started issuing licence recently.

The advantage of a microbrewery was that different flavours of beer could be brewed in-house and changed according to seasons or market preference with fresh ingredients such as apple, chocolate, mango, lemon, blueberries, coffee, and even rice and wheat without chemicals.
