To Beer, or Not To Beer: Craft Beer in Delhi NCR

Microbreweries or craft breweries first appeared in the United Kingdom around the 1970s (though traditional beer brewing had existed for centuries). These breweries produce beer in relatively small amounts and focus more on the quality and flavour of their beers. With the production taking place in the Bar/Pub itself, they have the advantage of being fresh as possible for a thirsty customer. The flavours they provide are often unique to the said establishment and can be used to distinguish themselves from their competition.

This concept is relatively new to India, the first of it's kind having been opened in Pune in 2009. Even though a policy that would allow the setting up of microbreweries was put into motion in 2015, it still hasn't been put into action as the administration fails to act in its legal work. While the thirsty Delhi-ites wait for in-city pubs to brew fresh batches, their neighbours at Gurgaon are already gulping them down. Here are few places in the NCR to help you forget about the red tape pushing lot at DDA, while you sip of fresh flavours of 100% Desi Beer.
