 doolally taproom house fries


Doolally Taproom is a microbrewery from Pune that has four outlets in Mumbai. It has beers such as Belgian witbier, oatmeal stout, weizenbock, porter and more on tap and opens at opens at 7 a.m. for breakfast. All the Doolally outlets are pet friendly.
Doolally Taproom; Bandra: Shop No. 5 & 6, Geleki, ONGC colony, Bandra Reclamation, Bandra (w), Mumbai 400 050; Andheri: C18-21, Dalia Industrial Estate, Near Fun Republic Mall, Andheri (w), Mumbai 400 053; Kemps Corner: 1st Floor, 135 Kwality House, Kemps Corner Flyover, Mumbai 400 036; Colaba: Ground Floor 1, Plot 75/77, Park House, Nathalal Parikh Marg, Colaba, Mumbai 400 005.


“So?” I finally ask him. He’s been sipping on his witbier without breaking the conversation. Surely four sips are enough for my new Belgian friend to proclaim his verdict. Even a whiff should suffice! After spending nine days on the Zanskar dreaming about fresh brews and debating about the best ale-producing countries in the world, we’re finally having some suds. “Oh. It’s very nice,” he says, “but these fries are out of this world! They’re Belgian too actually, you know? Not French.”
That’s the thing with Doolally Taproom. You walk in for the artisanal brews, and chances are you will return for those and more: in my friend’s case the house fries with five accompaniments, including a lip-smacking aioli and mayonnaise made with the deadly bhut jolokia chilly. Chances are you won’t see a single table sans this signature dish on a Saturday night. Techies, corporates, artists, hipsters, and students – you’ll find them all here, nodding away to Bob Marley while dithering between the American Pale Ale and Hefeweizen.
Chances are you will bump into me at one of Doolally’s four outlets over the weekend as well. Doolally is what my home looks like in an alternate universe – a warm, sparse space with French windows, unpretentious white walls, and light wood furniture where you can pet dogs and stack Jenga blocks all evening while sipping crisp apple cider.
Chances are you will sign up as a member, which entitles you to a free size upgrade on every drink and your personalized nametag on the tumbler. Which means it would be a crime to skip that mid-week tipple.
Now that we’re here, one apple cider please.
