Beer is for all seasons and times of the day. Come summer, monsoon, autumn, spring, or morning, afternoon, evening, or night – there’s no time when you can refuse a mug of beer, chilled to the core. And then there’s beer to appeal to every taste bud – stout for those who cannot have enough of the aroma of coffee, larger for those who love it bitter, and those on the other extreme who love a dash of fruit in it. So, get over the pre-conceived notion of only gin and wine being a woman’s drink and say cheers to this invigorating brew. While you do so, dig your hands deep into some delicious desi food that brings out the best flavours out of each other.
