In 1820, Edward Dyer moved from England to set up the first brewery in kasali  which came to be known  as Dyer Breweries  . The Kasauli brewery launched  Asia’s first beer, Lion, which was very poplar amongst the British rulers and troops stationed in the hot climate  of India. The brewery was later  shifted to  Solan  as there was an abundant supply of fresh water there. The Kasauli brewery site was converted to a distillery, which is  still operatational. later  H G Meakin, moved to India and bought the  Solan Breweries from Edward Dyer . After the First World War, the Meakin and Dyer breweries merged.
