Additional Information

Cobra Beer is an Indian beer brand that was founded in 1989 by Karan Bilimoria and Arjun Reddy, who thought that Britain needed a smoother, less gassy lager, which would appeal to both ale drinkers and lager drinkers alike. In the mid-1990s production was shifted from Mysore Breweries in India to the Eagle Brewery in Bedford (Wells & Youngs). In June 2011 Molson Coors bought a controlling interest in Cobra. As of 2014, Cobra Beer is primarily produced in Burton upon Trent, Rodenbach in Belgium and in Patna in the Indian state of Bihar.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.
