Best Indian Beers
Date: November 15, 2011, Topics: Brewing News
Just like romantic flicks of ‘Bollywood’, Indian guys have a love triangle relation with beers. Indians have a different taste in beer, and they mostly like whiskey. But even as the second most preferred alcoholic beverage, beer is loved and wanted in this country.
While major global players like InBev, Carlsberg, and Anheuser- Busch are setting up their production units in India, existing beer giants are forced to smarten up their quality control. There is a new race for supremacy in the Indian beer market, so let’s see what their current leaders are.
It is the most famous Indian beer brand. It is commonly called the ‘King of good times’, and it takes about a couple of bottles for an average person to get high. There are many variants of the regular Kingfisher beer, and if you are looking for something strong, you will find it easily. Some people say that this beer is made up of good marketing and average product. It is dark yellow, with a sweet taste. It gives a ‘phenolic smell’, telling about a strong alcohol level.
It is a malty and sweet brew that has a brownish color. If you have a refined palate, this beer is not for you. It is among the super strong stallions of the Indian beer market. You can also get Hayward’s 2000 and Hayward’s black. In terms of market share, this one is the largest selling beer there.
Foster’s has given some hilarious advertisements to the Indian TV audience, and thus has good brand awareness. This one caters to the tastes of people who enjoy a little bitter beer. If you want to have a backyard barbeque for a laidback evening, this beer is for you. The company also organizes Art of Chilling programs, so if you are visiting India anytime soon, make sure to attend them.
This beer is generally famous in villages. The reason for its limited popularity is high alcohol content and medicine like taste. People are often seen complaining of a hangover the next morning.
This one is quite underrated in India, but has all the qualities of a refreshing and crisp beer. It is mild, and has selected malts that give it an edge over other beers. It comes with honey golden color, and a smooth taste. If you are a beer connoisseur, this one is for you.
