or does this belong in 'The Galley' ?


Here are some examples of local brews, by island:
* Antigua: Wadadli (from the island's Carib name)
* Bahamas: Kalik, and Bahamian Hammerhead (Grand Bahama Island)
* Cozumel, Mexico: The best local beer is Sol, the perfect antidote to the usually steamy Yucatan weather. Other favorites are no surprise, including Corona, Dos Equis, and Presidente.
* Curaçao: Amstel, brewed locally with desalinated seawater
* Dominica: Kubuli
* Grand Cayman: Stingray
* Grenada: Carib
* Guadeloupe: Corsaire
* Jamaica: Red Stripe
* Key West: Hog's Breath
* Martinique: Lorraine
* Puerto Rico: Medalla
* St. Kitts: Carib
* St. Lucia: Piton
* St. Martin/Sint Maarten: Red White and Blue,
* St. Thomas (USVIs): Carib and Blackbeard's (St. Thomas)
* St. Vincent and the Grenadines: Hairoun
* Barbados: Banks
* Trinidad: Stag, Caribe, Guiness (tks Cpt Bil)

Tours are offered at several regional brewers, including the Banks Brewery in Barbados, the Carib Brewery in Trinidad, and the Belikin Brewery in

Not sure that beer should be listed under entertainment. Surely this should feature more under emergency necessities!

Tinidad beer

Want to add another local Trinidad beer.

Guiness, It is brew locally to the recipe, but they use local ingredients. It is dark and heavy like the traditional Guiness, but the flavor is sweeter and less bitter.

I still like the traditional but it was a nice change.

Not a big beer drinker, but I like my ale. McEwens is my favorite, but a heavier sweeter Guiness sounds really good.
