These beers are brewed locally with high-quality hops and malts in state-of-the-art facilities in Karnataka and Punjab. It is the latest launch inspired by their brand ambassador Dhoni’s signature helicopter shot, the special packaging and labeling are another noteworthy feature, inspired by the cricketer’s different jerseys and their colors.
