Fest Oktoberfest Lager
The Fest beer honours one of the most successful series, House of the Dragon, providing Indian fans with yet another opportunity to engage with this renowned franchise.
The beer is an Oktoberfest lager, a centuries-old beer style with origins reaching back to the 16th century that is malty with a clean, hop bitterness balance and has a toasted bread or biscuit-like malt fragrance and flavour.
Its colour ranges from amber orange to deep reddish copper.
The beer label has the House Targaryen emblem with the three-headed dragon superimposed over flaming flames, evoking imagery from the popular series.
Bira 91 also recently launched exclusive House of the Dragon x Bira 91 products for the shows’ fans in India, including glassware, graphic t-shirts, and collectibles such as bar blades and coasters inspired by the Seven Kingdoms.
Customers can purchase the limited-edition goods from this website.
Diwali Vintage Scotch Ale
Diwali Vintage, India’s first Scotch Ale, is a malty and rich beer with moderate sweetness from dark malts, gently tempered with the spicy bitterness of noble hops.
The overwhelming smoky aromas from peated malts used in the best Scotch whiskeys give the beer its robust flavour. The Diwali Vintage is a beer to enjoy gently by the fireplace while reflecting on the year that has passed.
Bira 91 worked with Kashmira Sarode, an illustrator and muralist, to create the packaging for the scotch ale. Sarode incorporates classic hand-drawn folk graphics into contemporary mixtures of pleasure and games.
Her passion for traditional hand-drawn folk artwork has been translated into a modern basic palette of gold and white for Diwali Vintage, filled with small touches for us to discover.
Fireworks Hoppy Wheat
The Fireworks Hoppy Wheat comes next, an explosion of hops and aromas with wheat adding an unexpected sweetness to the mouth.
This unique wheat beer is fermented with American ale yeast and has a robust hop finish, velvety mouthfeel, and fruity taste, making it ideal for any occasion.
As consumers prepare for the festival of lights, this unique beer style is sure to become a favourite!
Pranav Bhardwaj, an outstanding creative director and designer, designed the beer’s packaging.
His works are loud, colourful, and magnificent maximalism explosions. He displays all of his personal flaws, such as colours, shapes, and forms.
“After the massive success of the first phase, we are thrilled to launch the second phase of ‘Imagined in India’ portfolio, furthering our proposition of bringing experimental and flavorful beers to Indian consumers. Our brewers have used never-seen-before ingredients like peated malts to bring a unique combination of flavors that is apt for the upcoming festive season and celebrations.”Ankur Jain, Founder, and CEO, of Bira 91 said
“Bira 91 and the House of the Dragon coming together is the perfect recipe for a blockbuster! We are thrilled to collaborate with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products to honour the ongoing popularity of House of the Dragon with the production of our special edition beer, ‘Fest.’ We present India’s first scotch ale, Diwali Vintage, a wonderful partner for the holiday celebrations, and we take the festivities to the next level with Fireworks, a totally unique twist on wheat beers.”he continued.
‘Imagined in India’ Limited Release beers will be sold in 330ml bottles and 500ml cans in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Delhi, and Pune in phase two.
