Budweiser & Hoegaarden BANNED In Delhi For 3 Frigging Years (Wait, What?)


This Is A Representative Image

Everyone has their fave beer brand, right? But what if your fave booze was banned in the city for a whopping 3 years? Well, this is exactly what’s going on right now, so if you’re someone who enjoys making their get-togethers LIT with Budweiser, Hoegaarden and Stella Artois, you might have to look for other options for quite some time!

A 3-Year Long Ban? | So, Anheuser-Busch (AB) InBev has been banned for 3 years from selling their products in saddi Dilli. Known as the world’s largest brewer, they’re currently facing allegation for evading local taxes. After a 3-year investigation, SABMiller, which was later acquired by AB InBev in the year 2016, had been using duplicate barcodes on its beer bottles that were being supplied to various outlets that year. This resulted in them paying lower duties.

So in a second-order released recently, the Delhi city authority called to blacklist AB InBev for three years. It has also sealed two of their warehouses in Delhi! In case you’re wondering how this concerns you? Well, they’re known for selling popular beers such as Budweiser, Hoegaarden and Stella Artois which won’t be available anymore, folks!

So basically until and unless AB InBev appeals against this order, these beers are banned for the said time duration. But they might go ahead with an appeal as they claim that these allegations refer to a time when SABMillers was heading the operations, before its takeover by AB InBev! To sum it up, all the fresh stock of our fave beers from the company is debarred from restaurants and liquor stores for 3 long years!

If you’re someone who looks forward to chugging down Budweiser with their buds any chance they get, you might have to choose an alternative for a while!
