Hyderabadi-born brewer Saira Miller has closed her doors after almost 30 years.
The Hyderabad house is home to her family and the Miller family have been brewing beer ever since Miller joined the brewery in 1999.
Her brother-in-law and three sisters-in, as well as her family, all remain in her family’s house.
“It’s very sad,” Sairas sister-in law Adi, 40, said on Monday.
“There’s no more of us.
We love it so much.
It’s like we were part of the family.”
Sairas family owns the Miller Brewing Co., and her father, Sairan, and mother-in the house, Mimi, both worked there as well.
“We didn’t work with the family for too long, but she was always there for us,” Adi said.
“When we left for work, we stayed in her house and she gave us food and kept us company for the rest of the day.”‘
It was like being a mother’Adi said Miller’s father-in.
Naderi, worked with the brewery for the past 20 years.
“It was just her, her husband and me, and we were just so proud of her,” he said.
Miller said she had no regrets about leaving the house.
“I don’t think I could have done it without my family.
I couldn’t do it without all of them.
It was like living in a house.
We had to keep going,” she said.”
I never wanted to leave my home.
It felt like I was living in another world, and I couldn’ t do anything but stay here,” she added.
Miller said she has always wanted to go back to her home town, but had no luck getting permits to do so.
“If I could go back and change the way I think about the brewery, it would be so much easier,” she told Recode.
“But I couldn t do that, because the brewery is a family business.
I can’t take any risks and let them down.”
She also said she was grateful to her friends for helping her to keep her spirits up.
“That’s why I was so happy to see people like you in my hometown, so that I could show you that I still have a lot of energy,” she shared.
