Coming soon to Noida and Ghaziabad –fresh, unbottled beer

"Noida and Ghaziabad hadn’t been offering fresh beer till now. And the idea of travelling from Noida to Delhi or Gurgaon for some beer can draw a lot of excuses, traffic being one. But thanks to our very own, otherwise conservative Yogi ji, breweries are coming to Uttar Pradesh"

Breweries are not something that is new for folks of the national capital region. Gurgaon is a hub for dozens of breweries scattered across the city. However, Noida and Ghaziabad hadn’t been offering fresh beer till now. And the idea of travelling from Noida to Delhi or Gurgaon for some beer can draw a lot of excuses, traffic being one. But thanks to our very own, otherwise conservative Yogi ji, breweries are coming to Uttar Pradesh.

And since it’s about Yogi ji how can cows be too far? The estimated revenue of a whopping 17,000 crore would be used to cater to stray animals including cows in the state. The government believes that introduction of breweries would boost employment and tourism in the state. Well, not sure about either but some fresh beer would certainly help cope with the stress from unemployment. And if you are still wondering why fresh beer? Let us just tell you one thing -beer tastes best when it’s fresh. No further discussion.

The state has set a fine of 5000 rupees if liquor is served in excess of 600 litres in the day. Which is quite funny since 5000 is usually the minimum bill for any small group out on party. All those pubs would be happy flouting the regulation if the business came.

However, the wait seems to be a little long. The laws have been taken care of and taxes have been set. Now let’s see when the first brewery sets its foot in the land of the yogi. And till that happens, here’s a short list of breweries in NCR which you may like to visit.

-Vapour Pub and Brewery in MGF mall, Gurgaon is comparatively cheap and easily accessible since the mall is just across MG road metro station.

-Striker Pub and Brewery is another must go place. What more do you want if you get awesome freshly prepared beer and a great ambience? It’s located in sector 43, Gurgaon.
