In an interesting turn of events, according to reports, the entire stretch of area, next to the busy Sion-Panvel road which is known as the Nerul LP junction, is known so after the iconic beer factory, London Pilsner that came up over 47 years back.

Even though the beer factory is in a dilapidated condition now, the name LP after Nerul reminds us of the days long gone, however, not forgotten. Moreover, the area is now to be razed in order to make way for a commercial tower. Incidentally, the bus stop along the highway next to the factory site is officially called ‘Nerul LP Stop’.

Meanwhile, the LP beer is reportedly fondly remembered as an affordable drink that was enjoyed thoroughly by the citizens back in the 1970s and 1980s.

On the other hand, the Maharashtra Excise Department had earlier informed that the sale of beer in Maharashtra fell 62.5 per cent per day in October as compared to the period prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus. According to data shared by the officials, the beer sales were at 3 lakh litres per day in October which went down from 8 lakh litres in January.

Furthermore, sales of vodka, rum and whiskey are said to be at 6 lakh litres per day which is nearly identical to the figures from before the pandemic. A total of INR 35 crores were generated from alcohol sales while the average figure stands between INR 38-40 crores.
