When I was in London earlier this year, I had tried Cobra Beer, which was awesome. It's an Indian based beer. Does anyone know of any beer stores in NYC that may have this beer for sale? Perhaps in Chinatown? I haven't been able to find it so far...
I haven't tried that beer, but I would look around Lexington and 27th/28th or in Jackson Heights if I were you. Their website only lists places in England to get it, but I did find it on this list of importers of beer into the U.S.:
Here's their contact info (from that site):
Cobra Brewing Company Alexander House

London SW6 3BN, England, U.K.
V: +44 (0)2077/31 62 00
F: +44 (0)2077/31 62 01
Importer: Cobra Beer Co.
You could try calling them or writing them to ask where in the U.S. it's available.
