Mr Narayan Manepally

Founder and CEO
Geist Brewing Co

Narayan, an Electrical Engineer by profession, is the brain behind Geist, a Bengaluru-based “designed for Indians” craft beer brand. Along with his childhood friend, Paul Chowdhury, he introduced India’s first bottled craft wheat beer under the Geist brand.

The Geist team helmed brewing operations at two popular microbreweries in the city until 2016 when they received a license to set up South India’s first distribution craft brewery in Bangalore. Today, Geist Brewing Co. delivers a variety of global craft beer styles directly to customers (via beer gardens, taprooms & a packaged beer experience in Bangalore retail stores) as well as local hospitality businesses that aim to delight their patrons with an authentic craft beer experience.
