Kingfisher Premier Lager
THE beer to drink while in India, so who are we to argue? Plus the imports were obscenely expensive (relative to Kingfisher) so we stuck to the local stuff.
The Kingfisher brand is ALL over India. Someone related it to how Virgin is everywhere by us. There’s Kingfisher Beer, Kingfisher Airline, etc. And yes, you can get Kingfisher beer while on a Kingfisher flight….we tried. After doing some digging, the Kingfisher brand is under the parent company, United Breweries Group. With a market share of over 36%, it is India’s largest selling beer, with 1 out of every 3 bottles of beer sold in India being a Kingfisher brand. Not too shabby, eh?
I actually did enjoy this beer. It didn’t blow me away but it was definitely very drinkable. No distinct flavors, a ‘typical’ beer I guess you could call it. Will definitely be ordering a bottle (or pint) at Sanaa when I go in January just so I can reminisce a little about my amazing trip to India this year!
