Bira 91 and New Belgium Unveil 'Chutney Sour' Beer

Bira 91 is a prominent craft beer company in India and a rapidly expanding global brand has partnered with New Belgium Brewing, one of the United States' largest craft brewers, to introduce "Chutney Sour."

This collaborative beer combines the flavors of Indian street food with the renowned craft brewing tradition of Colorado.

Beer is infused with tamarind and tangy fruit commonly found in Indian chutneys and curries, this beer is crafted based on the traditional Dubbel, a Belgian-style ale refined by New Belgium Brewery.

The beer made its debut in both companies' taprooms: Bengaluru and Delhi-NCR in India for Bira 91, and Fort Collins, Colorado for New Belgium Brewery.

This release was strategically timed to align with the Indian Spring festival of Holi.

"We couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with New Belgium Brewing. Colorado is at the center of beer innovation in the world, and New Belgium is the most well-respected beer company in the United States. Our Limited Release beers are brewed with a two-word MO for our brewers – Go Crazy! Right from the word Go, our respective brewers started jamming and vibing, and came up with this crazy, but in hindsight, such an obvious idea – making a Belgian Sour Ale with Tamarind –a “Chutney Sour”. The result is a brilliant surprise, and I am sure consumers who get their hands on this Limited Release will love it!” said Ankur Jain, Founder and CEO, Bira 91.

The beer will undergo a single brewing cycle and will be exclusively available in the taprooms until supplies are depleted.
