Commenting on the announcement, Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, IHCL, said “IHCL for over a century has pioneered new cuisines and food and beverage concepts. The opening of the Seven Rivers brewpub in Goa is in line with our vision of bringing differentiated experiences for our guests. Furthering our partnership with AB InBev, over the next five years the concept will scale up to 15 new destinations across the country.”

IHCL and AB InBev entered into a partnership to launch a premium chain of microbreweries and launched the first brewpub in 2020 in Taj MG Road, Bangalore. This industry-first partnership embodies the pioneering spirit of both companies bringing an unmatched microbrewery experience to consumers.

Commenting on the launch, Kartikeya Sharma, President – India & South East Asia, AB InBev, said, “We are pleased to unveil our second Seven Rivers brewpub through our partnership with IHCL. The Seven Rivers brewpub is a testament to the growing consumer demand for artisanal beers, and we are confident that beer as a category is poised for growth in India.”

Housed in a Portuguese villa, the sprawling beer garden, the first in Goa, features large outdoor spaces with an indoor tasting table. The brewpub will offer beer inspired by the quintessential flavours of the region, as well as those made from the finest locally sourced ingredients and crafted by experienced international and Indian brewmasters.

Highlights include the Poi lager, which uses local Goan bread Poi as part of the mash bill, and the Kokum Gose, which uses the tangy local Kokum from the farms of Goa. The usual suspects – Witbier, Hefeweizen and Kolsch- also join the ranks. The brewpub will offer a menu with a mix of local Goan flavours and global favourites paired with craft brews. 

Vincent Ramos, Senior Vice President, Goa, IHCL, said, “With Goa evolving as India’s leading food and drink destination, the all-new brewpub will add to the city’s culinary repertoire. We look forward to bringing the one-of-its-kind – beer garden experience to Goa.” 

Seven Rivers brewpub at Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa, Goa offers guests an authentically brewed beer escape.
