LOTS of Guinness...Jamaicans love it. Drink it for the strength, mon! There's always Dragon Stout too. Makes you breathe fiyah, mon.

Red Stripe, Kingston (another local beer), and Guinness is about all you may be able to find.

Not a huge fan of Red Stripe, but while you're in Jamaica, get some Guinness Foreign Extra - one of the best beers i've ever had. Tried some in St. Thomas a while back - unbelievable. Apparently it is only available in the Caribbean, Africa and Asia. Sorry to threadjack, but it's THAT good.

Where is the brewery? Because I wouldn't travel to Kingston.

I traded my old, muddy, post-Dunn's River Falls sneakers to some Jamaican in the parking lot for a sixer of Red Stripe. He needed the shoes, I needed the ice cold beers for the bus ride back to Negril!

Love Jamaica mon!! Spent a week and a half for my honeymoon.. It was a blast..

Red Stripe is definately not my favorite beer, but it does alright in a pinch. Think Budwieser!!
