4 – 5 July 2018
White Orchid Convention Center,Bangalore, India


Craft Drinks India 2018, is INDIA’s first comprehensive trade show platform for the craft beverage production industry. Covering wine, spirits and beverage production technology & ancillary products, the event will provide a perfect platform over a period of two days for the craft drinks ecosystem to meet, interact, deliberate & witness cutting edge global technologies.

With an estimated retail market size in the region of USD 40 Billion per annum, India is the 3rd largest liquor market in the world. A global study by Paris-based Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has found that alcohol consumption in India has risen by 55% over a period of 20 years.

India currently has approximately 600 million people of legal drinking age. Alexandre Ricard, the CEO of Pernod Ricard, hence told reporters in London, “the underlying consumption potential in India isn’t strong, it’s extremely strong”. This immense market potential has led to several industry altering innovations targeting the young consumer. These include brew pubs, microbreweries and innovative other craft spirits.

Within a short span of a decade, over 100 brewpubs have opened across India. There are several new ones cashing in on the trend in Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chandigarh and Goa. Gurgaon and Bangalore host the majority of them, obviously fueled by demand from young urban professionals. The number of microbreweries are increasing year on year and are expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% in the coming years.

Craft Drinks India is being founded within the worldwide network of the NürnbergMesse Group, which has built on the experience gained from BrauBeviale to create a series of specialist craft beverage production events around the globe.

BrauBeviale has now passed its 50th edition and is a benchmark event for the beverage industry. Beer has always been at the heart of the show, and over the last few years the event has responded to the potential and importance of the craft beer movement ever since its embryonic phase, by creating the Craft Beer Corner, where craft beers from all over the world can be tasted, and the European Microbrew Symposium, organised by VLB.
