Overview of Microbrewery License

A microbrewery, also called a craft brewery, is a small unit that produces limited quantities of beer for captive consumption and is found mainly in establishments such as hotels and restaurants in tourist places. As with the terms, we can understand that breweries that are much smaller than large-scale corporate breweries are defined as microbreweries. These breweries are generally characterised by their emphasis on quality, flavour and techniques. A microbrewery is a locally produced beer on a small scale using more natural ingredients and is also owned independently.  

The microbreweries produce an average of 5,000 to 50,000 litres of beer daily. A microbrewery operator has to obtain a separate license from the Excise Department of the required State Government, known as a Microbreweries License. Currently, only a few states like Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Maharashtra and Karnataka are allowed to set up microbreweries. 

Benefits of Microbrewery License

Following are points that can be considered as the reasons that there are many benefits of obtaining a microbrewery license:

  • With the recent hike in beer consumption, Pan India has given the most significant push to these locally brewing communities. They are getting more financial avenues, including venture capitalists. 
  • There is a rise in the market for these projects nowadays. Beer is the second most consumed alcohol in India, which means this business is very profitable in the Indian market. 
  • The All-India Brewers Association projects sales of such beers thrive at more rate than the growth of the traditional beer market.
  • The microbreweries market is developing at a reasonable rate in India. Although, right now, only a few states are at liberty to produce such microbreweries, the Government is planning to line up more states to operate such businesses in India.
  • As per the current estimates, the market of finely crafted beers is accounted for between Rs. 75 crores and Rs. 125 crores, and it takes almost 8-9 crores on average to establish a microbrewery. 
  • The Delhi NCR region has witnessed a significant increase in the demand for different types of beers. And as per a survey, Gautam Budha Nagar, Noida, has recorded a monthly consumption of 15 lakhs bottles and more than 7 lakhs litres of overseas liquor. 
  • Independent owner 
  • No need for packaging and per bulk litre for packaged beer in cartons
  • Taxes are imposed on a weekly or monthly basis.
