THE BEER GARDEN

Arbor Beer Garden is an airy tropical watering hole in the heart of Saligao village in Goa's hinterland. Enjoy the lush garden setting that features a lively bar counter adjoining a large gazebo seating area, and picnic table-style section, all shaded by a handful of palm trees.

Goa's first beer garden, this microbrewery and caual eatery creates a cheerful vibe with groovy tunes all day, and strings of golden glow lights that enhance the ambiance as night falls.

Drop by to catch up with friends over an array of craft beers by Arbor Brewing Company. For guests with kids, there's a sand pit, and plenty of space to laze about.

THE BEERS

EASY RIDER
American Wheat Beer | ABV: 4.9%   IBU: 10

SMOOTH CRIMINAL
Honey Lavender Ale | ABV: 8%   IBU: 13

CASCADE LAGER
International Lager | ABV: 6%   IBU: 22

IMPERIAL COFFEE STOUT
Imperial Stout | ABV: 6.3%   IBU: 45
Appearance: Very dark brown with a white head and ruby glow when held to the light
Tasting notes: Rich roasted malt and biscuit flavours combining with chocolate tones. This is all brought together by a coffee aroma and finish. The coffee used was aged in whiskey barrels to give this balanced beer a touch of oak and vanilla flavour.
Background: Imperial Stouts were originally designed to be shipped to the Baltic region from Britain. This style had survived the test of time and is now becoming extremely popular with most beer drinkers, due to its abundance of rich flavours.

BEACH SHACK
India Pale Ale | ABV: 6%   IBU: 55

Tasting notes: This juicy American India Pale Ale is packed with citrus and tropical fruit flavours from a wagonload of late addition hops that deliver huge flavour and aroma with just the right balance of refreshing biterness.
Background: While old school IPAs developed in the USA in the 1990s focus on malt falvours and hop bitterness, the new American IPAs are built around big, juicy, hop flavour without as much bitterness.

CUCUMBER & MINT KOLSCH
Kolsch | ABV:4.8%   IBU: 80
Appearance: Straw colour with subtle gold hue
Tasting notes: This style provides a clean refreshing malt flavour, along with a delicate fruitiness from the distinctive Kolsch yeast and hops used. A slight mint  aroma, which also comes through in the aftertaste, accompanied by the faint cucumber tones to finish it off nicely.
Background: Traditionally the Kolsch style comes from Cologne, Germany. Brewed with an ale yeast at a lager yeast fermenting temperature. The cucumber and mint is an added twist by Arbor.

THE STORY

Arbor has a fascinating a story - 25 years and 2 continents in the making. In 1991, Arbor Brewing Company founder and head brewer, Matt Greff made his first batch of homebrew, and he has been brewing up a storm ever since.

In 1995, he helped pioneer the American craft beer revolution with the opening of his first brewery in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Over the next 20 years, he opened a second brewery in Michigan and built a highly respected brand known for quality, innovation, integrity and sustainability.

Here in India, Gaurav Sikka was doing some pioneering of his own. After discovering American craft beer while studying at the University of Michigan, he was keen to bring that quality and passion back home. So he reached out to his favourite brand and the rest as they say, is history.

GaUrav also dabbled in script writing, media startups, and had a stinit at Virgin Comics LLC too.

Arbor opened its Bangalore brewery in 2012, and has been satisfying thirsty crowds ever since. Arbor expanded operations to Goa in 2018, with the opening of a production brewery and beer garden.
