Lovers of Indian food are being asked to get on their bikes — and win a free beer! The first ten people who arrive on two wheels at Scotland’s biggest ever Indian food festival in Glasgow, on July 14 and 15, will be given a complimentary bottle of Kingfisher’s new Bombay Bicycle India Pale Ale (IPA).
It will be the first time that Bombay Bicycle, designed to complement the spicy flavours of Indian cuisine, will have been available at any Scottish event.
Launched in July and generally for sale only in restaurants, it was created with the help of celebrity London-based chef, author and TV personality Dipna Anand.
Bombay Bicycle uses New World hops such as Cascade and Chinook to give citrus and tropical fruit notes to refresh the palate, while its dry bitterness enhances spice and heat.
Scotland’s Indian Food Bazaar — A Culinary Journey will be staged at The Briggait, in Glasgow city centre, from noon to 10pm each day. It will feature 36 dishes from India’s six main culinary regions, as well as Indian musicians and dancers. Admission is free.
Anyone arriving by bicycle should phone 07867 510451 to claim their free beer.
