An individual’s choice of beer depends on the time and place. The beer, which can satisfy you on a hot summer afternoon, preferably won’t do much good during a cold winter evening. The last beer you grab for the day won’t actually be the one you started with.

Our range of fine crafted beers suited for different occasions will ensure that you let yourself go and indulge in some quality “friends” time.

Be it a business lunch or a lazy summer afternoon, Paddy’s poison will surely get you going. This beer will stir up the afternoon conversations and make you float on an island of fun.

Holly Sally
Holly sally, the princess is mostly preferred on a hot summer evening. Inarguably, the majestic queen of beers will set your mood straight and provides the attention you deserve. She can tingle your taste buds with her saucy blend of spices. Her blend of cinnamon, coriander and black pepper will make your tongue go wild and make you dance to her tunes.

Good Golly
He’s quite a gentleman back in Ireland, with his creamy rich texture combined with a delicate balance of flavors, he will surely sweep you off your feet, literally. Just like “calm before the storm”, he’s best gulped before the main course (main rounds of drinks that is). He sets the mood for the night and makes you go wild. Be rest assured the gentleman has a dark side which comes out after few rounds.

Black Beard
Darth Vader has nothing on this guy! This mysterious beer hailing from Ireland, which is out to quench your thirst and give you the energy you need for the night. Gulp a few before you hit the dance floor and the moves come in spontaneously. He gets you with his smoky flavors blended with roasted caramel and kiss of chocolate. Black Beard is a certain force to reckon with.

Murphy's Microbrewery - tasting a beer

How to taste a beer

When tasting a particular beer for the first time, most people just gulp it down, burp and say “it’s awesome” or “its crap”. Even though tasting beer is an individual art, we at Murphy’s Microbrewery in Bangalore will teach you how to taste a beer like a true professional that you are:

  1. Look

Take your time to admire the greatness of a fine crafted beer. Marvel away at its greatness before you gulp it down. Don’t hold the beer to direct sunlight as it will mask its true color. Understand the color, consistency and other variances.

  1. Whisk

Gently swirl the beer in your glass. This will bring out the aroma, nuances, stimulates and loosens carbonation.

  1. Smell

Majority of what you experience in a beer is through sense of smell. Gently sniff your beer, breathe twice through your nose with two sniffs and then sniff it once again with your mouth open.

  1. Taste

Now here comes the best part, gently sip your beer and try not to swallow it immediately. Let your taste buds work around and explore the beer. Ensure that you notice how your mouth feels and breathe out during the process. Detect any bitterness, sweetness or salty flavors in your beer. Try to explain what they are or what they resemble.

Mind you! Try tasting a beer when it’s warm. As a chilled beer tend to mask all the flavors. A warm beer will pulse through all the true flavors of a beer and become more distinct.

Landmines!

Interesting game to play with a coin, 2 shot glasses and empty beer cans. As the game progresses, you’ll drink heavily, form new alliances and comrades take your place in the battlefield.

Requirement
• Coin
• A table to spin the coin
• Couple of shot glasses
• Lots of beer (cans/bottles/mugs)

Setup
This game is usually played on a smooth surface, be it a table or a floor. Players stand around the table in a circular fashion and take turns anticlockwise.

Game Play
The first player takes the coin and spins it on the table. As the coin is spinning, the player must take the 2 shots of beer in the same hand they spun the coin and then pick up the coin before it stops spinning also with the original hand. Now this is where it gets interesting. After a beer has been finished by a player, he/she can use it as a landmine to smash the spinning coin of another player, causing them to take the 2 shots and start over. The finished can/bottle can be placed anywhere on the table which acts as a landmine (obstruction) to other players. The player must try not to hit the can/bottle while trying to spin their coin.

As the game progresses the landmines increase and this is where your comrades enter to bust you out. When a player gets stuck in their turn, they can ask their fellow comrades to bust them out by taking their turn. But a player gets only one “bust out” and they can drop out only after drinking an entire beer as penalty.

The game ends when the map (table or floor) is filled with empty beer cans and it’s impossible to spin a coin, this is known as a nuclear fallout.

Get playing and start drinking! At Murphy’s microbrewery in Bangalore!

Murphy’s 5 best hangover cures

Murphy is an expert at curing hangovers. He’s been there and done that about 365 days every year. Here is Murphy’s list of five (5) best hangover cures:

  1. Raw eggs: If you have the stomach for it, then a couple of raw eggs for breakfast and then again for lunch would neutralize the alcohol in your system so that you could head for Murphy’s Brewhouse again!

 

  1. Water, plenty of it: In fact you can just place your chair, bed, mattress, whatever below the tap itself. If you wake up, just open the tap, take one big swig and go back to sleep.

 

  1. Sauna: If you can reach a sauna in time, you can sweat out the beer. Head straight to your watering hole once you start craving for beer again.

 

  1. Swim in the Atlantic: If you can find the Atlantic, you can be sure that your hangover is more or less cured. To do the last bit, you can take a dip in the cold water.

 

  1. The ultimate Irish hangover cure – This is what has kept Murphy going for years. Keep drinking: If you are still hung-over just retrace your steps to the pub and keep drinking. If you can’t beat the hangover, distill it.

Stout (Guinness) Beer

What is Guinness Beer

Guinness is a popular Irish dry stout that originated in the brewery of Arthur Guinness.

How is it made?
Guinness stout is made from water, barley, roast malt extract, hops, and brewer’s yeast. A portion of the barley is roasted to give Guinness its dark colour and characteristic taste. It is pasteurized and filtered. A feature of the product is the burnt flavour that is derived from roasted unmalted barley

The draught beer‘s thick, creamy head comes from mixing the beer with nitrogen when poured.

 
Blackbeard – the Irish Stout at Murphy’s Brewhouse

Blackbeard is perfectly balanced – dark but not too bitter, thick and creamy but not overly so. It is acclaimed to be the best Stout in the town. Head to Murphy’s when you crave Stout next.

 

Technically, fewer calories than skimmed milk

Making the product requires knowledge in the sciences of microbiology, mycology, bacteriology, and thermodynamics. Despite its reputation as a “meal in a glass”, Guinness only contains 198 kcal (838 kilojoules) per imperial pint (1460 kJ/l), fewer than skimmed milk or orange juice and most other non-light beers.

 

The Surge

Draught Guinness and its canned counterpart contain nitrogen (N2) as well as carbon dioxide. Nitrogen is less soluble than carbon dioxide, which allows the beer to be put under high pressure without making it fizzy. The high pressure of dissolved gas is required to enable very small bubbles to be formed by forcing the draught beer through fine holes in a plate in the tap, which causes the characteristic “surge”

 

Stout (Guinness) Beer is officially a very dark shade of ruby.

Studies claim that Guinness can be beneficial to the heart. Researchers found that “‘antioxidant compounds’ in the Guinness, similar to those found in certain fruits and vegetables, are responsible for the health benefits because they slow down the deposit of harmful cholesterol on the artery walls.”
