Cobra Beer was founded by Lord Karan Bilimoria in 1989. He launched Cobra Beer when he realised that Britain deserved a better, smoother, less gassy lager. Not just smoother, but one which complemented food, and appealed to both ale and lager drinkers alike.
Originally imported from Bangalore (India), Cobra is brewed to a traditional Indian recipe for an extra smooth taste with less gas. Only the finest natural ingredients are used including barley malt, rice, maize, wheat, hops and yeast.
On every Cobra Beer bottle you’ll find our story embossed into the very glass. It brings to life the journey we took from a brewery in Bangalore to the lips of beer lovers all over the world. Much like modern India, Cobra brings together a fusion of past and present in perfect harmony.
Cobra Beer is now the No. 1 selling beer in Indian restaurants in UK, and is also one of the strongest and best known brands in the world beer category.
The Cobra Beer portfolio is also one of the most highly awarded. In the Monde Selection, one of the most prestigious quality awards in the world for beer, Cobra Beer has been awarded a total of 88 gold medals since 2001.
