Beer in the Bahamas


Beer in the Bahamas

Beer in the Bahamas suit the Caribbean sunshine perfectly - totally refreshing. But watch out, they are generally high in alcohol, with lager ranging in the 5-6% range and Stouts in the 6-8% range.

Two lager beers are produced in the Bahamas, Kalik and Sands. Both are hugely popular. But, if you prefer US domestic brands then don't worry, you can still find favorites like Bud and Miller.

Something that might come as a surprise to some, is that Guinness is brewed in Nassau.

The Guinness in Nassau is a very different drink from the original Irish brew - far stronger, richer, sweeter, suiting the taste buds of the Bahamas beer drinker. In that respect, the Nassau Guinness is much more akin to the version you might find brewed in Nigeria.
