The Craft Brewers Association of India (CBAI) was founded in 2014 as a non-profit collective of brewers and brewery owners, working to promote and advance the brewing revolution in cities throughout India. Our goal is to work united as a group to help all those interested in expanding and growing the unstoppable force of craft beer all over the country.
Headquartered in Bangalore, the pub capital of the country, our mission is to nurture the craft brewing industry, and with it spread the message of responsible drinking. The CBAI strives to secure the role of beer in our culture and society through the advancement of brewing quality and consumer education.
Craft beer is relatively new to India but it is here to stay. People are asking for novelty, they are asking to be taught about enjoying craft beer. This is where the CBAI prides itself as the conduit for craft beer awareness. For 2017,
we have multiple events lined up that will bring professional brewers, associated members and craft beer enthusiasts into a single platform in our fold. With a pan-Indian member list, we hope to reach out to every single craft beer lover in the country.
We have been working towards creating favorable policies to help move the community forward and we intend to do everything we can, to make it easier for people to set-up breweries and more importantly, make it easier and more fulfilling for people to enjoy a pint or two.
The CBAI strives to secure and augment Craft Beer’s role in our culture.
