  • The beer must be freedom-seeking happiness impounded in bottles. May be that’s why drinking beer is never just about the 500ML liquid contained in those aesthetically wrapped glass bottles. It’s more about the soul that imbibe the brew and the ambience engulfing it. Imagine a fine evening, wherein you, holding a chilled craft beer in your hand, are indulged in the aesthetics of British colonial architecture – the soft white plastered walls with dark timber paneling and dark brown shutters that create a great tonal variation, and the furniture immersed in a natural color palette of browns from leather, timber, and bamboo. This is no art gallery in Manchester we are talking about, but a priceless experience in the heart of Bangalore evoked by The Whitefield Arms Pub - a quintessential modern British pub & microbrewery that celebrates the history of Whitefield through its unique menu and Bangalore’s love for beer.
