EXCITING BEER NEWS: Later this month, Indian street food legends Bundobust will be opening their very own craft beer brewery. 

Though Bundobust has been making its own brews for some time now, never before have they had the space to operate their own bar and taproom while brewing on site. Well, until now, that is.

Their second Manchester venue will be located in the Grade II-listed St James Building on Oxford Street in the form of a 150-seat taproom and restaurant, all nestled within a fully-functioning brewery.

Bundobust

Bundobust Brewery has been under construction since 2019 and, now on the brink of completion, the 10-hectolitre custom-build will soon be capable of producing a whopping 20,000 pints per month.

On the interior front, the overall design has been heavily influenced by US brewpubs, with a nod to Germanbeer hall camaraderie.

Sustainable furniture outfit, Woodmancote Retro has also created the brewery’s high tables and stools, with each chair being made up from forty recycled plastic water bottles. School desks have also been repurposed into beer hall-style tables, complete with “I Woz‘Ere” sketchings.

Bundobust co-Founder Marko Husak said: “We were due to open in May 2020. The past eighteen months have slowed us down, but the delay has meant that we’ve been able to develop our beer recipes. Expect the familiar Bundobust vibe and menu, with the bonus of being in a working brewery.”

Other co-founder Mayur Patel added: “The opportunity to carve out an iconic Manchester building from scratch has been a massive undertaking, and we’re excited to welcome people in.

“We’re looking forward to opening a unique space alongside theatres and gig venues, Oxford Road station, and great pubs like The Peveril of the Peak.”

Here are the beers you can expect to find on rotation at Bundobust Brewery (and all Bundobust sites from) from now on:

CHAITRO. 5% Nitro Chai Porter. Smooth and creamy Porter with roast malts, a whack of our Bundobust chai masala, and fresh ginger.
PEELA. 4% Pale Ale. Easy drinking hazy Pale, brewed with Azacca and Ekuanot hops. Loads of tropical fruit flavour.
DHANIA PILSNER. 4.8% Coriander Lager. Clean and crisp Czech-style Pilsner with a hit of citrusy toasted coriander seeds.
KIPSY BHAI. 4.8% Kellerbier. Traditional Kellerbier-style lager with German malts and hops. Clean, balanced and crisp.
EAST IS EAST. 6.5% New England IPA. New England-style IPA showcasing ever-changing combinations of the freshest hops.
WEST IS WEST. 6.5% West Coast IPA. Dank and bitter IPA. Piney and resinous, brewed with a rotating selection of the choicest hops.

They will also be collaborating with a whole host of shining UK brewery talent; recent collaborations include ANDHERA Hoppy Black Lager with Deya Brewing Company, NEW DELHI DAZZLER India Pale Wit with Northern Monk, and SALTED LEMON SOUR with North Brewing Co.

Bundobust Brewery will be opening its doors next week on Thursday September 16th at 4pm, and to celebrate they’ll be giving away the first 200 pints for FREE (only with the purchase of food.)
