Jain, chairman of the Meghalaya-based CMJ Breweries, was in Goa Wednesday to launch Kaltenberg beer, which is manufactured in the north-eastern state in association with Bavaria-based beer experts Konig Ludwig International.

"Goa is the Mecca of beer in India. It is the fastest growing market and has always been that way," Jain said.

"The market is just building up," Jain said, adding that India consumed about five lakh cases of super premium beer annually, all imported.
