"A human should always work hard. No matter where you are now, it's only you to determine where you would be in the coming years of life."
Dynamic, daring and a go-getter—these words are floating around the concept of the microbrewery culture and translating it into The Brew Estate, the first Microbrewery of Chandigarh. Ever since Arundeep Singla set up the shop in December 2015 at Sector 26, Chandigarh, the brewery has seen an unmatched success with increasing footfalls and soaring popularity. The inspiration for the Rock & Strom Group came from his experiences and learning in Australia.
A devoted father and a loving husband, Singla credits his family and his team for being the strongest support system that has helped him build his successful empire, whether as the Managing Director of The Brew Estate or his other ventures. Singla has several plans ahead which he will surely fructify to achieve success in the industry in the near future.
