Kerala native’s craft beer ‘Malayali’ creates wave across Poland

One pint of a beer, known as Malayali, is helping to close the distance between Kerala’s Palakkad and Poland. Malayali, a beer created by Chandramohan Nallur using Indian rice and European hops, is gradually displacing other beers on Polish bar shelves.

As per a report by The New Indian Express, when Palakkad native Chandramohan Nallur got the idea of creating a beer, he didn’t have an iota of doubt about the name.

The beer’s name, according to the 38-year-old, is a reflection of his love for fellow Malayalis. He is the first Malayali director of the Chamber of Commerce in Poland. But Nallur isn’t the only one making global waves. Komban, a beer created by Kochi native Vivek Pillai, is extremely popular in the United Kingdom. Nallur hopes to replicate its success in Poland, where Malayali was launched in November.

In future, the Kerala native hopes to expand his business to other European countries.
