There are few things that go together better than a creamy spicy curry and smooth craft beer. Having taken India by storm the last two years, popular craft beer company Bira 91 has set its eyes on the global market, starting with the launch of International Curry Week across three cities: New York, Singapore and New Delhi. The inaugural festival, running from 12 to 28 October, will see participating restaurants partner with Bira 91 to curate a selection of curry dishes to pair with the brand’s handcrafted White, Blonde or IPA brews.

Curry may have originated in India, but it finds different shapes and forms in cultures all around the world: think Thai massaman curry, sweet Japanese kare raisu or Indonesian kari with chicken or mutton. Curries from all over the world will be showcased at International Curry Week. Participating restaurants include New York City’s famed Miss Lily’s, Baar Baar, Kiin Thai and Amarachi; Singapore’s Tandoor, Lagnaa, Long Chim and Nara Thai; and New Delhi’s Lavaash By Saby, Jamun and AnnaMaya, among many more.

“We’re thrilled to kick off the first annual International Curry Week,” said Ankur Jain, founder and CEO of Bira 91. “Curry is the world’s comfort food, but it’s enjoying a new embrace as something different: a hip symbol of how the world is growing more colourful and more diverse. We’re excited to complement a wide range of curries with our own distinctive beers and look forward to bringing something new for consumers to experience for years to come.”

Select restaurants will offer diners a custom menu with curry-centric entrees specially developed by the chefs, along with a specific Bira 91 pairing. Others will offer fixed pricing on specific dishes paired with Bira 91. Along with the culinary offerings, Bira 91 will provide free giveaways and redeemable vouchers with the order of certain curry dishes.
