An organoleptic hop transducer isn't a gadget from Tony Stark's lab but a simple filter system that helps you infuse a flavour of your choice by placing your desired ingredients in a chamber. Called the Randall (in pic above), you can experience this at an Andheri bar with two dessert teas(red berries tea and mogo mogo) from a premium tea brand.
On: April 13 and 14, 4 pm onwards
At: Woodside Inn, New Link Plaza, next to Oshiwara Police Station, Andheri West.
Lager than life
This new Lower Parel brewery is coming up with not one but three new beers for the season. Launching on April 25 is Indian pale lager (in pic), which is inspired by the profile of the bitter Indian pale ale, though this lager will be low on the bitterness. Also launching on the same day is Mozart's magic - Vienna Lager, a European lager with a dominant malt flavour. Come May, they will introduce the amber ale, a rich amber-coloured ale with a citrusy hop aroma.
At: Drifters Brewing Co.Trade View Building, Oasis City, Lower Parel
Cost: '260 each

Be it guava or apple, this brewery does wonders with the use of fruits, and just in time for summer is the Valencia orange wheat.

As always with wheat beer, the citrus notes elevate its light flavour, making this variant the apt choice for summer.

At: Gateway Taproom, Godrej BKC, G Block, Bandra Kurla Complex, Bandra East
Cost: '245 and '295
