B'Day Blast: TJ's Brew Works Turns Five, Introduces New Brews, Grain-Free Menu & Nudo Pizzas


    One of Pune’s first microbreweries, TJ’s Brew Works at Amanora in Hadapsar just turned five in style – a new look, new brews, new menu and a new vibe. Their birthday resolution?  A healthy guilt-free food movement all set to take Puneites by storm.

    The Spent Grain Menu

    In an endeavour to make healthy choices, TJ’s is tweaking and twisting the existing menu to incorporate spent grain dishes, a treasure trove of goodness, nutrition, taste and health. Spent grain is super rich in protein, fibre content and macronutrients.

    TJ’s in-house expert, Chef Ubeid has taken the healthy road and is now creating his buns, breads, baos and cookies from spent grain. We loved their beer cheese soup {INR 215} and the Russian Olive salad {INR 345}. TJ’s newest inclusions – the dark malt bao with chilly tofu stuffing, the bruschetta on spent toast and the spent grain pelmeni with a filling of spinach and ricotta are absolute wonders on the plate! For main course, we recommend you order the Mediterranean lamb burger {INR 495} and the four cheese spent ravioli with roasted tomato sauce {INR 415}. Wait until the desserts come on the table. Their new grain-free buckwheat rich chocolate cake for INR 220 is lips-smacking and won’t hurt the calorie count!

    Say Hi To Nudo Pizzas

    But that’s not it! Welcome the Nudo pizzas, a range of gluten-free, grain-free and guilt-free pizzas by Nudo Pizzeria Al Naturale, the brainchild of Girish Monie. The pizzas are presented in five super-healthy crusts – almond, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth and a combination of cauliflower and whey protein. We loved the Nudo farm pizza {INR 700} made of quinoa crust and roasted garlic white sauce. Meat lovers, dig in to the Nudo pepperoni pizza {INR 700} made with amaranth crust and classic red tomato marinara sauce.

    Newer Healthier Brews

    The new additions to the existing portfolio of brews at TJ’s are the TJ’s Quin B and TJ’s Buck B, made from quinoa and buckwheat respectively. What we loved the most is the fact how each brew is given a character. Say, the Quin B is for the classy, super-stylish lady in the bar. The brew, in itself is very refreshing with a creamy head and a pale yellow body.

    The Buck B is crafted for the fitness freaks! Brewed with pseudo-cereal buckwheat, this hazy yellow lager is easy to drink, full of flavours and finishes off smooth on the palate.

    We can’t not mention about all-time favourites on the tap. TJ’s Devil Dark is for the alpha males with strong opinions and directives. It’s a strong, heavy-bodied dark lager with a smoky flavour that leaves behind a chocolaty after-taste.

    If you’re the life of any party, try the TJ’s Blonde Brew. Just like you, this brew is very refreshing, pale-coloured with mild bitterness.

    Are you a rich kid with luxurious upbringing? Then TJ’s has a beer well-crafted to suit your personality. It’s called the Premium Bock, a full-bodied, high quality brew from imported malt and Czech Saaz hops.

    So We're Saying...

    Forget about cheat days! Head to TJ’s Brew Works and indulge in to some mouth-watering guilt-free cheat food with a mugful of beautifully brewed craft beer.
