Founded in 2014, the Birmingham-based brewery – which produces beers including Indian Summer, Bombay Honey and flagship brew Birmingham Lager – will open a taproom and street food venue in central Solihull to add to its Snowhill site in Birmingham’s city centre – which opened in 2017.
With capacity for 100 covers, the Solihull venue will offer customers a full selection of craft beers from The Indian Brewery’s range as well as a unique street food offer including ‘fat naans’ and ‘Indian fish and chips’.
Mirroring many aspects of its original site found beneath the railway arches at Birmingham's Snow Hill station, The Indian Brewery’s venue in Solihull will feature a glazed beer cellar, an open-plan kitchen and hand-painted artwork and focus on creating “good vibes only” with a mix of cultures on its jukebox.
Discussing the brewery’s expansion, Jaspal Purewal, CEO of The Indian Brewery and who studied at Solihull college, explained: “After the launch of our first taproom, Indian Brewery Snowhill, we’ve received such positivity from the public, which has been the key factor for us to open our second site.
“In Solihull, there’s not many independent businesses. There’s a load of mainstream companies out here and we’ve seen an opportunity to offer our locally brewed beers and innovative Indian street food.
“We will be increasing employment within the local area and working with local organisations to really shout about Solihull.”
The brewer also revealed that plans are afoot to open a state-of-the-art brewery in central Birmingham with an onsite taproom and tours to the public.
