Official Beer Partner
Lord Karan Bilimoria founded Cobra Beer in 1989 having realised that Britain deserved a better, smoother, less gassy lager.
Using the finest natural ingredients and a traditional Indian blend of barley malt and yeast, with maize, hops, and rice, he created an extra smooth and less gassy beer, quite unlike any other. Originally planned to be called Panther, the beer was ready to go, but the name wasn’t popular with customers and was changed to Cobra at the eleventh hour. They have been awarded a total of 88 Gold Medals by Monde Selection. In 2016 Cobra was awarded 5 gold medals across the Cobra Beer product range including a Grand Gold for King Cobra.
Cobra Beer will be available for Members to sample at a range of Club events throughout the year.
Baron Bilimoria was at Sidney Sussex (1986-88) and read law. He gained a Half-Blue at Polo in 1988 and is an active Club Member.
