We’ve all had to make the hardest decision at 9pm on a Friday – pitcher or mug? We make it simpler for you by listing the five best pitchers in the city {‘cos after a mug, you know you’ll give in and order a pitcher}.

Besides housing beers from around the world, The Irish House also serves fresh tap beers like Erdinger and Stella Artois along with a three litre pitcher of Kingfisher draught at INR 1,350. To go with the beer, there’s nothing better than their loaded fries {Mexican mess, tipsy paprika and cheese}, starting at INR 335.

If you’ve tasted their five drinks at INR 500 offer on their fifth birthday, you’ll know why Woodside Inn is on this list. Affordable prices and brilliant brews waiting to be gulped down {or enjoyed slowly} starting INR 945 for a Kingfisher draught pitcher, INR 1245 for a Gateway and INR 1325 for Independence. Every pitcher contains 1.5 litres {four and a half mugs to be precise} of happiness, which can be paired with barbeque pulled pork bruschetta {INR 375} or zucchini parmesan chips {INR 245}.

This microbrewery located in Andheri has pitchers for craft beer for nothing. At INR 825 a pitcher for beers like oatmeal stout {Dark Vader}, apple cider, English pale ale and German wheat beer – it’s definitely leaving a good taste in our mouth. Pair them up with chicken tenders {INR 250}, fish and chips {INR 300} or shrimp cocktail {INR 300} to set the tone for a beery good night.

Jugheads

Now, Jugheads has been an old favourite of draught beer drinkers for various reasons. They have an ambience that transports you back to the nineties{you can always catch a Backstreet Boys song here}, have a 1+1 offer till 8pm{on weekends} and the staff is friendly. Their food menu has sauteed mushrooms at INR 175, prawns aglio olio at INR 325 and potato wedges at INR 165. It’s the casual watering-hole you go to after a long day at work.

Speaking of casual watering holes, this list would be incomplete without the mention of Cafe Oval. With a draught pitcher at just INR 380, it almost makes us gasp for breath and makes us thirsty. Although they don’t have an elaborate menu to satiate our after- beer {or during} hunger, we’ll probably do with their snacks at INR 25 or their cheese omelette at INR 85 and then head out to a South Mumbai eatery.
