The Haywards beer brand is most well known for its iconic Haywards 5000 strong lager, which contains 7% alcohol. The brand was launched in 1974, with the Haywards 2000 mild beer, as an extension of the renowned Haywards liquor brand (founded in the early 1900s). Haywards 5000 was later introduced in 1978. It has a certain after-taste, which people tend to either love or hate. Haywards also produces a rare super-strong Haywards 10000. Haywards has a market share of nearly 11%. It’s consumed mostly in Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, and Chattisgarh.
The Haywards brand of liquor was founded by Britisher Sir Anthony Hayward, and two of his grandchildren run a fantastic heritage bed and breakfast in south Goa. The bar serves Haywards 5000, of course. And, there’s free beer for anyone who can beat the drinking record.
