To get a sip of chilled tapped beer, Delhiites had to travel all the way to Gurugram. But such days will be soon be forgotten as the malt machines are gearing up in Delhi to tap out the finest of beers!

What was the issue?

Breweries were listed under the ‘prohibitive’ list of industries as mentioned in the Master Plan of Delhi (MDP) so even though, many businesses had applied for the license, they were left high and dry! The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) realised the revenue potential and after much assessment. They have now granted the National Capital, the permission to set up microbreweries!

It was evaluated that a microbrewery, unlike an industrial unit, was a small set-up and was, therefore, not a source of pollution. There was also an ongoing shortage of fresh and cold beer, especially during summers so this news came in like a breath of fresh air!

Now brewing!

The decision to allow microbreweries was taken 3 years back by the Delhi Government but the delay in the implementation forced entrepreneurs to shift base, mainly to Gurugram!

According to the official proposal, “Microbreweries up to 500 litres/day capacity may be allowed to be set up at any restaurant/hotel/club subject to installation of the onsite wastewater treatment facility and adherence to related no-objection certificates (NOC)/licences required.”

States like Punjab, Haryana, Maharashtra, Goa, and Chandigarh, already have microbrewery setups and the citizens enjoy cheap beer aplenty! The hope for a better tomorrow where we’d take in swigs of cold beer while enjoying music after a busy day is finally coming true!
