Mandalay brewery

Crown Prince Ka Naung
Crown Prince Ka Naung
Mandalay plant was established in 1859 by the last Crown Prince Ka Naung for producing cannons, but has been changed by British into Beer Factory in 1886.

Edward Dyer was the first brewer . Since that time the factory was known as Dyer , Meakin ( Burma ) Brewery .

Takasago Beer Company from Japan ran the brewery in a short space of time of japanese occupation ( 1941-1945 WWII ) , so they renamed it to Takasago brewery , which later was converted into a miso and soy-sauce factory when raw materials came into short supply.



Back of label
Then British came...

1948 - Independence...

1954-1962 Renamed to State Brewery...

1962 - Military Government...

Became bankrupt in the beginning of nineties of XX...

In 1993, the Union of Myanmar opened up its doors to foreign investment. The bankrupt Mandalay Brewery bubbled back to life.

Joint venture between a Singapore-based company, Yaung Chi Oo Trading, and the Ministry of Industry No. 1 of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC).
Singapore businesswoman Win Win Nu revived the brewery with her investments took a 45% stake in the venture, but the joint venture came to an abrupt halt on November 11, 1998, when armed soldiers and police seized the brewery on the orders of SPDC Chairman Gen. Than Shwe.

Now the plant is equipped with modern german equipment and the newest technologies , but I place here pics only of old british brewery`s building as a part of its outstanding , wonderful and such a saturated history...

Still alive, thank you Buddha!
