Radhika: Exploding! And, am glad we are right in the middle of it.
Rahul: It’s one of the best craft beer scenes in the country and with all the crazy competition Beer is the definite winner.
Back to Toit—in all the time you’ve been coming here, any particular moment stands out for you both?
Radhika: There was a time when my office and home were equidistant from Toit – and I think I was seen here thrice a week! Those were crazy times.

Rahul: The beer of course. Also, my wife drives me crazy when we don’t!
