Arundeep Singla is an entrepreneur. He was born in a small city in Punjab named “Sunam” and completed schooling there. He decided to complete further studies in Australia. So, He packed bags in 2006 and got enrolled for a Master’s in Finance from Melbourne. During his stay, he was fascinated by the Brew-pub industry of Australia. He returned to India in 2008. Here, he started looking for the opportunities and needs of people because a storm was in his mind to change the liquor Industry of India. To make it successful, he dedicated one year to the research and groundwork. And in no time, he set up his alcohol brand “Rock & Storm” and introduced his first plant in 2009, and entered the market in Delhi in 2011. He was vigorously working on the foundation of combining affordability with availability. To explore more about the Alco-bev industry, he started going on subsequent visits to Europe, Belgium, and the UK.
In 2015, microbrewery law in Chandigarh was instituted and this sparked a thought in his mind. He was determined to lay the first stone of the combination of restaurant and brew-pub and came up with The Brew Estate in 2016.
Armed with an engineering background and a professional accounting degree from Australia, the young and dynamic entrepreneur stormed the market at the age of 30. Arundeep Singla has channelized the drift of his experiences to take Rock and Storm Distilleries to be the perfect launchpad. And now, only the sky is the limit!

Craft Beer Passion
Passion for craft beer was obvious for Mr. Singla. The European craft beers were a good execution of hops, malt, yeast, and imported ingredients from Germany, the US, and Belgium. These beers have an optimum bitterness and enchanting aroma. This is what was instilled in Arundeep Singla to bring it home. With the same precision and same ingredients, He set forth his way to open a major microbrewery chain – The Brew Estate.
