If you prefer English pale ale this is the perfect brew for you. Blackbeard Ale has hints of heavy malt and rum, making it quite delicious. It goes well with various seafood and meats. However, if we were to be very honest, you could have it on its own and still feel sated.
This beer is popular because it has quite a kick. With 5.5%alcohol content, the heavy drinker could get quite a buzz after 2 bottles. You will also like how it tastes of vegetables and citrus. While it is known to be a “man’s beer”, many females will love its subtle aroma and rich flavor.
Red Stripe is the ultimate Caribbean beer, as it goes perfectly with the weather and the cuisine. It is a full-flavored pale lager that goes down smoothly. Most natives will tell you that it is best served with pork or chicken. However, in our opinion, this beverage goes quite well with anything or nothing.
This is the national beer of the Dominican Republic. It is amazingly light and has a sweet aftertaste. It is a great thirst quencher and palate cleanser after a heavy meal. There is nothing fancy about Presidente beer. However, you will feel the malt and the hops used to create this straightforward German-style lager.
