A tightening of regulations on the permissible yeast content in beer was causing concern among craft brewers in India two years ago.

In the quest for authentic connections with consumers, the rise of social media has been a godsend: Never before have companies had so much data about what, when, where, how - and why - consumers buy what they buy.

So, when it comes to marketing, can social media ever replace traditional media for drinks brand owners? just-drinks took a closer look.
