Beer and The Brigadier

Beer and The Brigadier

Inspired by the army mess bars of India, Brigadiers sits in the centre of the City of London, providing a place to come together to eat, drink and socialise. 

Our founder Luke headed down to Brigadiers to meet the team and find out more about their approach to hospitality, which focuses on great sharing dishes and escapism from the busy city life outside. 

Above Brigadiers' impressive dining room hangs the portrait of a real-life Brigadier, a senior rank in the military. He oversees the bustling restaurant, where sharing dishes are king.

Make sure you get down to Brigadiers to try their delicious Indian barbecue menu, accompanied of course by a cold Lucky Saint.  

Brigadiers BBQ Butter Chicken Wings Recipe

Crisp, cold lager and creamy, spicy chicken wings – a match made in heaven. If you can’t make it down to Brigadiers, they have given us the recipe for their famous chicken wings  

Ingredients (12 portions):

For the marinade 

  • 50g ginger garlic paste 
  • 20g mustard pomace oil 
  • 10g garam masala 
  • 40g Kashmiri chilli powder 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • ½ tsp ground coriander 
  • 10g kasoori methi 
  • 80g hung yoghurt 

For the butter wings 

  • 300g marinated chicken wings 
  • 27g ghee 
  • Juice of ½ lemon 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 25g cashew nut paste 
  • 40ml double cream 
  • 10g chopped ginger 
  • 2g white chaat masala 
  • Handful of chopped coriander 


The day before, make the marinade by combining all the ingredients in a bowl. Add the wings and rub with the marinade. Place them in the bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight.   

The next day, preheat the grill to 200C. Remove the wings from the marinade and cook for 20 minutes until cooked through and nicely charred. 

Make the butter sauce by adding the ghee, lemon juice and salt to a mixing bowl. Add the warm wings and give it all a stir. 

Add the cashew paste and double cream and stir. 

Now add the chopped ginger, the white chaat masala and most of the chopped coriander. Give one final stir and stack up in a bowl. Sprinkle a little more coriander over the top.
