Beer is not only the most consumed alcoholic drink in the world, but also the oldest. Its existence stretches back to the days of ancient agriculture-based civilizations in the world. The significance of beer has not diminished with time. Famous festivals like Oktoberfest are celebrated even to this day in Germany each year, attracting millions of people from around the world. In India too, traditional beer using mallet or rice has been brewed for thousands of years and is mentioned in various ancient texts such as the Vedas before the British brought their version of this drink here.
The Best Spot for Beer in Delhi
If you are a beer lover looking for the perfect brewery in Delhi, Boombox would be the perfect spot. Boombox Cafe derives its name from a global street culture in which street dancers dance in unison to a boombox. This cafeteria is a partnership venture between restaurateur Priyank Sakhuja (of the Out of the Box, 1 Boulevard, Masha fame), model-actor Zulfi Syed and actor Aditya Pancholi.
Roasted barley and special yeast make the Boombox Special Beer that lends a touch of scotch to its taste. All the staple beers are served here. Wheat Beer is a hot-selling drink on the menu. They have cocktails of their own and they taste just as fabulous.

A Pleasing Ambience to Relax Over a Glass of Beer
The café is spread over two floors – the upper floor has a light and airy seating space that merges into the outside surroundings. The entire setting is intentionally asymmetric with a lot of nooks and corners. The vibe of this hideaway is definitely grungy. The walls are brick exposed, there is graffiti sprayed on the walls and metal shutters on the windows.
You can expect to have a hearty meal and gulp down gallons of beer at just INR 1600. An added bonus is the terrific playlist to let your hair down to.
