Tapped - India's First & Biggest Craft Beer, Food & Music Festival Is Coming Home to Mumbai!

It's time for Mumbai's beer aficionados to rejoice as Tapped, India's first and biggest craft beer festival is being held on 24th November 2019. It's set to be the perfect beer carnival with fun, food, and music in the house! 

Painstaking Organizers 

Tapped is being organized by the Gateway Brewing Co., beer importers Yeast India Company, catering firm- Little Food Co. and events firm- Homegrown India.  The day-long event will showcase around 12 local craft beers. 

Rahul Mehra, founder, and partner at the Gateway Brewing Co. said: “In India, all beer festivals are usually marketed as Oktoberfest celebrations and ultimately visitors at such events end up drinking just one or two mainstream beers and a few ornamental imported brands. The idea behind Tapped is to create a collaborative platform for local brewers and the alternative beer market without depending on any kind of big marketing budgets."
