Third Effingut Brewerkz Outlet in Kharadi

Popular brewpub Effingut Brewerkz has opened its third outlet in Kharadi. It shows promise of ‘acche din’ for all its fans and those interested.




The city always worked well on good chow and very good atmosphere. It seems that Kharadi is the new place to be with the eateries and interesting outlets. Effingut Brewerkz, a recent and not so recent brewpub to wow Pune, seems to be attracting the crowd well. After Koregaon Park and Baner, it has now opened up its third brewpub in Kharadi at the very happening World Trade Centre. Friday the 4th of August was when it all happened and this wonderful space of freshly brewed beer attracted a lot of fans who want more this place. Now I have to confess – this is the first time I have visited any Effingut outlet.

But it was worth the wait. The freshly brewed beers were quite welcoming especially with friends around. I tried the Apple Cider beer and I would have sold my soul for its fresh taste. The starters like Crispy Vegetables, Jalapeno Cheese Poppers, Paneer Tikka, BBQ Chicken served its purpose well. Food was served later. There was nothing to complain as far as the food and drinks were concerned. Considering the popularity of the place, I did feel that a slightly larger place would have served the purpose especially if live event would be happening. The place is not small but would have worked with a little more than what it is.



Location-wise, it might seem far but since the crowd here is more IT and also other working crowd, chances of those interesting coming in might be more. But you can still easily come here with a big group and have a great time.

Keeping up with a tradition to serve the best, the launch saw stand-up comedy kings Atul Khatri, Sapan Verma and Angad Singh Ranyal of EIC charm their way into everyone’s hearts with a good dose of humour. They tickled everyone’s funnybones along with humorous picking on the audience. It was a certainly a win-win situation for those who attended this launch. The brewpub has a big task ahead of maintaining this tempo.



With making a stamp on the Punekars with quality freshly brewed beers, Effingut Brewerkz now is planning to go slightly big with next destination Mumbai and more pan India plans in future. One has clear hopes and bets placed on this winning horse.
