One of the many charges levelled against millennials is that they’ve killed everything from banks to hotels to romance. They have also been accused of showing much less love for beer. Ankur Jain has taken it upon himself to change that. Since its launch in 2015, his craft beer Bira91 has been a big hit with urban millennials in India. He is also producing and selling in the U.S., and wants to enter Southeast Asia this year. The beer will be available in Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur. He is targeting 21- to 28-year-olds in all markets.
