Delivering Quality, Since 1961

Devans Modern Breweries was established in 1961 by Dewan Gian Chand, a pioneering industrialist from Jammu & Kashmir. The company has grown from a liquor bottling unit in its initial years to one of the leading manufacturers of beer and matured malt spirits in the country. With a diverse portfolio of award-winning products, we pride ourselves on the quality of our products. As we enter our sixth decade, we look forward to continuing our spirit of innovation and diversifying our portfolio of products.

We are passionate. Yet we behave responsibly.
We are progressive and forward looking. Yet we respect and hold on to traditional values.
We are quality conscious. Yet we deliver value for money.

The Visionary

Prem Dewan, our Chairman and Managing Director, joined DeVANS in 1982. Under his leadership, the company has expanded from one manufacturing unit to four. This expansion has led to the company’s growth to become one of the leading matured malt spirits manufacturers and producers of first-rate beers that are consumed across the country and sent for export in the international market.
