Brewed using local rice from Karnataka, black jaggery, and coconut, it has a creamy mouthfeel with a hint of coconut that complements the sweet notes of jaggery and rice. With an ABV of 5% and an IBU of 15, this beer promises to tantalize the taste buds of beer enthusiasts.

The collaboration between BLR Brewing Co. and Great State Aleworks is a testament to their commitment to pushing boundaries and creating unique flavors that appeal to the Indian palate. The mastermind behind the creation of this beer is the head brewer of BLR Brewing Co., Umang Nair, who teamed up with the talented brewers of Great State Aleworks, Nakul Bhonsle and Divyesh Patil, to bring Blonde Ale to life.

Commenting on the collaboration, Umang Nair, Head Brewer at BLR Brewing Co., said to The Balcony Stories, “Such collaborations are so much fun! When we have innovation and passion for craft beers coming together, it creates something truly unique. As Nakul rightly says #drinklocal”

“When Umang and I started discussing this long overdue collab, we thought of brewing a beer based on a dessert known as Patoli, which is common across the coastal regions of 3 adjoining states: Goa, Karnataka, and Maharashtra. And so, we used coconut, jaggery, and rice in this beer. The resultant beer is a light ale with a hint of a coconut and a creamy mouthfeel!” added Nakul Bhonsle, Founder, of Great State Aleworks.
