it's all about taxes and liquer mafia. beer used to cost double in gurgaon compared with delhi till last year. this year, the mafia was given the middle finger and the government was more liberal with allocating shops to dealers. now the rates are somewhat comparable between haryana and delhi...haywards 5000 for 50 bucks. a great deal i had say. it used to cost me 90/100 before this financial year.

When Iwas in noida a beer bottle cost me around Rs.65 to Rs.75. But the same Haywards 5000 is just Rs. 40........now I usally consume double the amount I used to consume in Noida. :)

when beer was expensive in delhi we used to go to the border to pick up tons of bottles and come back. it was worth it to do for more than 4-5 bottles. and we did it a lot of times...

Sad to see Fosters pulling out of India. I used to love their 330ml bottles :(I prefer Kingfisher Strong (40 bucks too) to Haywards. Try it if u haven't already; you'll thank me :p
