It dates back to the 1820s when Edward Abraham Dyer moved from England to set up the first Old Monk brewery in India. Not many are aware of the fact that Edward Abraham Dyer was the father of Colonel Reginald Edward Harry Dyer of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre. Dyer has remained a symbol of criticism and hatred for killing hundreds, and wounding thousands, of innocent people.

The brewery was incorporated as Dyer Breweries in 1855, at Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh. The Kasauli brewery launched India’s, and indeed Asia’s, first beer, Lion, which remained in demand by thirsty British administrators.

There is no doubt in the fact that even almost a century after the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre took place, the Dyer family is among the most hated families of India. As the incident got buried with time, the popularity of Old Monk increased, just to become one of the most cherished drinks in India.
