Chilling In Baga? You Must Try This Microbrewery's Epic Mango Beer
What Makes It Awesome?
Susegado is derived from a Portuguese word, which means quiet or quiet life. This word has become synonymous with what Goan life is all about. So a chilled beer, a book and the beach are all you need. Currently their three varieties of beer are available at various bars and restaurants like Joseph's, Tierra Y Mar, Zeebop by the Sea, Palms N Sands, Airport Ferry Terminal, Habanero, Royal Enfield Garage Cafe, Black Sheep Bistro, Baba Au Rhum, as well as the Holiday Inn, Cidade de Goa and Taj Holiday Village Hotels, with more constantly being added to the list.
Their most popular offering is Dorado, an IPA with a strong hops character and a satisfying bitter finish. Our favourite though was the Trigo (meaning wheat in Portuguese) a Goa inspired Mango Wheat Beer, that's the perfect tropical summer drink. They even have a seasonal third variety that changes every few months.
At Susegado, they use quality ingredients, and entertain their yeast during its three weeks of fermentation by Goa's top musicians, they say (sounds amazing, right?). Plus, Aditya Challa, their master brewer, trained in Edinburgh and was at the helm of an award-winning microbrewery in Singapore called Jungle Beer, so you know the hops are in expert hands.
