Gateway Brewing Company is an Indian brewery from Maharashtra, .

Gateway Brewing Company was founded on 1st Nov, 2011 with a single purpose: to brew classic styles of beer with local ingredients and make them available to bars & restaurants at an affordable price. The name is inspired from Mumbai’s local landmark – Gateway of India.

Apart from the sheer detail that we put into each beer we make and the fact that we use locally produced barley malt and also roast our own speciality malts, our beers, by design, are far from being mainstream. Costs do matter but taste prevails. We only use malted barley & malted wheat. We don’t use cheap sources of sugar that dilute flavours. We use hops generously to give you a balanced, a bitter, a very bitter, an aromatic and an over the top hop bursting beer as well. Basically, we have no constraints when it comes to making flavourful beers.

We age our beers longer, unlike commercial beers that are probably bottled within 5 days of being brewed. We spend a considerable amount of money on our logistics to ensure that our beers reach the restaurants when they are at their peak. Our beers are transported cold and stored cold right till the time they are tapped at each restaurant. This is very important because no beer, or rather, no good beer can survive being transported in this city’s weather unless they’ve been loaded with chemicals and stabilizers – none of which even enter our brewery. Further, we don’t use colours and foam enhancing chemicals.


A Walk in Brussels

5 years have gone by and we have loved the moments in which we conceptualised recipes and launched new beers. There were stressful moments as well but amidst few wrongs there have been many rights!

Another lager launches soon…

Our first lager, Hoppy Pils, was a big learning experience for us. We not only filtered the beer to be very clear, crisp and smooth, but also double dry-hopped it using a new technique.

Romancing the Beer

A nice read from our very own in-house beer geek: Navin Mittal. While the title of the article has been inspired by Valentine’s Day that’s just passed, it brings fond memories of the 1984 film, Romancing the Stone, starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner & Danny DeVito. I had seen this film when I was in ... Read More
