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. Cobra unique recipe make it the perfect complement for any cuisine.
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.
Cobra Beer is now one of the strongest and best known brands in the world beer category.
