Gateway Brewing Company

Gateway Brewing Company was founded on 1st Nov, 2011 with a single purpose: to brew classic styles of beer with local ingredients and make them available to bars & restaurants at an affordable price. The name is inspired from Mumbai’s local landmark – Gateway of India.

The founders of the company – Navin Mittal, Rahul Mehra & Krishna Naik, are all brewers who are passionate about beer and the business of beer. After having put considerable effort into changing and shaping Mumbai’s micro-brewery policy, they are now ready to tap Gateway Brewing Company’s beers across Mumbai’s bars & restaurants.
