Why the name?

We are passionate about dogs- and we wanted to do something about it. There are a lot of stray dogs that need our attention and this beer intends to help them something. This style being our flagship style, it is brewed the most and is year round. For every liter sold, we pay Rs. 3 (more than 1% of our revenue) toward helping strays. The counter below shows the amount of beer sold!

      When we started homebrewing, this was a style that was the most popular among the craft breweries present. It was an easy drinking beer- and without the prominent hop bitterness, it was a great beer for the budding craft beer audience. It was tricky to decide if we should make it, but experiencing the witbiers from Ommegang, Allagash and Kiuchi Brewery, we realized that there was so much more that we could offer as a brewery.

      Partha started reading a lot about this particular style, and started to make the Belgian Witbier pilot trials. He probably spent around 2 years to finalize the recipe that we produce now. But, he’s constantly making subtle changes to recipe to make it better!

      As a result of studying so much about this recipe, did he think of using basil and peppercorns in his other signature style- the Basil Peppercorn Witbier.


      A twist to the standard Witbier, this crowd-favorite wheat beer is aromatic and light– making it a refreshing hot day beer!

      Inspired by the herbs grown in our terrace garden, we started experimenting with various fragrant thymes, parsley and basil. After narrowing down on the perfect variety of basil, we decided on using peppercorns to balance and complement the flavour and give the beer a complex peppery taste!

      Savor the prominent fragrance of basil, and finish off with a spicy, yet subtle tingling sensation on the palate.

      GAMEOFPINTS (Jayesh) says:
      Basil Peppercorn by Yavasura was the most consumed beer by me at Tapped Beer Fest. I just had to go back every time for this one. I tried it several months back for the first time, and I haven’t stopped having it since then.
      A must try!
