The gluten-free 4.8% abv Goa Premium Beer is packaged in 500ml cans, which are priced at £1.39. Until now the striking can, which depicts a Goan beach party scene, has only been available in the UK in restaurants in 340ml format alongside 650ml bottles.
Goa Premium Beer director, Frank Sequeira, said: “We have been bombarded with enquiries, not just from coeliacs and those with a gluten intolerance who want to drink our beer at home, but also from those customers who discovered the authentic Indian product in restaurants and like the clean, sharp, refreshing taste.”
The beer, which is brewed using a unique malt and maize-based recipe, is already available in around 300 bars and restaurants in the UK with strong sales reported from top London venues such as The Painted Heron, and leading regional restaurants such as Chilli Pickle in Brighton.
The beer is brewed from a brewery on the banks of the Kushavati River in India.
