India has always been a drinking nation (in spite of the many taboos associated with alcohol) and we have come a long way from the local tharra. With vodkas and gins being produced locally, could beer really be far behind? There was a time when Kingfisher was the only option and if you had a higher budget, then brews from Germany and Belgium were the popular choices. Thankfully, for beer enthusiasts, things have changed since and India’s winning at brewing its own beer. We’ve listed some local beers you can buy off the shelves.
White Owl is relatively new in the market but has already made a mark with its quirky packaging, reasonable pricing and obviously, great taste. Available in variants like wheat (Spark) with citrusy notes and Irish red ale (Diablo) which is a stronger brew with hints of caramel and roast, they’ve got the two extremes covered.
The peeps at White Owl recommend you drink their beer not in a regular beer mug but a thinner glass as airing their beer (so many wine feels) helps bring out the flavour more.
