There’s more to beer than Kingfisher

KINGFISHER is probably one of the best known Indian beers there is. But there’s more to Indian beer than Kingfisher.

The Kingfisher airline in India is owned by the same guy that brews the beer. But you can’t drink his beer on the frights, because consumption of alcohol on domestic flights is forbidden. However, it’s likely in August that Kingfisher will go international, so then you’ll be able to.

Last week we sampled two delights – Haywards 5000 and Knock Out. As you’ll gather from the latter, they’re pretty strong beers, and tasty too. They both deserve more exposure to the discerning connoisseur of beer [shorely lushes, Ed.].

We won’t mention Cobra here, because the Cobra you get in Blighty is brewed in Blighty. It was repackaged a few years ago, now where the Hindi for snake, Naga, was replaced by a Hindi transliteration of Cobra.

There are some fine Nepalese beers too. More power to their elbow! Hic. ♥
