With a decade of brewing excellence behind them, the couple now sound confident about speeding up their expansion plans for the adjoining underserved towns and cities.

Upbeat about the future of the bar and kitchen business despite the recent setbacks, Priyanka and Amritanshu shared with news website LifeInChandigarh.com: “The interiors of Hops n Grains Mohali may be new, but the freshly minted beer, the sheer variety of it, is the same as the lovers of freshly crafted beer have come to associate the Hops n Grains brand with.

“To retain a sense of freshness, the restaurant would be introducing new beers every few months, while the marquee drinks like Weiss Beer, Dunkel Dark and Premium Lager would continue to be served.

“Right now we are serving Wheat Beer, Belgian-style Witbier, Black Rice, Green Apple, Peach and German-style Bock. Beers are served in 500 ml mugs and beer towers ranging from 2000-3000 ml. Along with this, a wide variety of other premium hard liquor are available in the menu,” they emphasised.

The couple promise to stick to their avowed traits of their business strategy - attention to detail and delightful food, which includes signature snacks and main course dishes like Penne Al Fungi, Grilled Chicken Breast and Mushroom Hara Pyaz. Punjabi Fish curry and Nutty Veg Kofta are some of the new additions to their main course menu.

Head Chef Paramjeet Singh lists out Churros desserts (crispy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside with an irresistible flavour), Jaegersschnitzel (German dish), Veg Shammi Kebab, Corn Jalapenos, Zafrani Murgh Tikka and home-made Thai curry (made in-house from scratch) and South Indian Prawns as other specialities from his kitchen.

Amritanshu has high hopes about Hops n Grains doing good business in the fast emerging buzzing urban metropolis of the region that Mohali is, with a flourishing IT, higher education, health and wellness and real estate sectors. 

Designed by tricity’s well known designers Nikhil and Suvrita, the newer Hops n Grains has interiors which are contemporary, yet classy, to cater to all shades of guests from youngsters to the older generations. The red bricks and old style lamp shades bring all round vibrancy to all three floors. The central element of the design is the imposing spiral staircase which runs through the first and second floors.

Each floor has its distinct identity. The first floor has aesthetically designed arches and chandeliers which take you back to the era gone by. The other floors have special wooden paneling made of reclaimed railway sleeper wood.

With comfort being the motto, the sitting comprises of mixture of cane chairs, leather clad sofas and live edge tables some of which have sandblasted black top finish.
