Cobra Premium was created specifically to be paired with spicy food and for that reason is the UK’s number 1 Asian Beer. In 1989, Lord Karan Bilimoria Cobra’s founder, noticed that regular lager was too gassy and bloating to be enjoyed with food, while ale was too bitter to accompany a meal.On a mission to create a beer which perfectly complimented food, Lord Bilimoria worked with a maestro brewer in Bangalore and together they created Cobra Premium which has a complex blend of seven ingredients, expertly brewed in a way that gives it fewer bubbles, leaving a smooth sophisticated taste which is why we say its Brewed Smooth for All Food. The Cobra Beer Trademark is also home to Cobra Zero non alcoholic beer, Malabar Indian Pale Ale and finally King Cobra our super premium double fermented craft beer brewed in Belgium. The entire Cobra portfolio has been Brewed Smooth for All Food making them the perfect accompaniment for any meal.
