Red Stripe Jamaica beer|| by Lajune Stewart

There are as many sobriquets as there are variability of this illustrious Jamaican brew.  Men and women unite in their thirst for it. 

The History?

The unearthing of beer was, no doubt, pure merriment and feasibly as expressive to humanity’s progress as the detection of fire.

The production and development of beer dates back 6 to 8 thousand years ago by the Sumerians. Thanks to this heavenly exposure, the skills have been sophisticatedly polished and transported through the eons with as much pride as the olympic torch burning brightly.

Data suggest that beer was born through bread. Damp grains fermented, mixed with wild yeasts in the air, caused spontaneous fermentation. This “inebriating pulp” alerted history.

And then in 1928,  Paul H. Geddes and Bill Martindale developed a recipe that has become the standard by which others have been measured for decades. It's name... Red Stripe Beer!

Jamaicans ask for it by name! It is had either hot or beastly cold and may even be kept in the medicine cabinet as home remedy for gas or stomach- bloating.

It's signature use though is when we are having a good time with family and friends.

By the way, interrupting a domino game here in Jamaica is a sin; the only redeeming act is a hand outstretch containing a red stripe as a token of apology.

Red Stripe is a 4.7% alcoholic beverage, brewed by Desnoes & Geddes in Jamaica. 

We Jamaicans like to put a spin on just about everything; for example we celebrate victories like no other, cases in point; “Usain Bolt’s athletic victories, and Tessanne Chin winning Season 5 of NBC's reality TV singing competition The Voice”,  we all celebrated in Half Way Tree square. Therefore, our well beloved beer should be no different.

Jamaican Red stripe can now be found in various flavors, including:

  • Red Stripe Original
  • Red Stripe Light
  • Red Stripe Light Apple
  • Red Stripe Light Ginger
  • Red Stripe Light Lime
  • Red Stripe Light sorrel
  • Red Stripe Bold

So you see, there are lots of options for the mature adult.

So is there anything 'cooler' than enjoying a cold Red Stripe on one of Jamaica's tranquil white sand beaches with the Caribbean breeze caressing your cheeks - all the while being serenaded with some authentic roots reggae music?

It depends on who you ask, but I tell you there is not much!

So when you are in the mood for chilling, celebrating or appreciating, remember good times and your Jamaican Red Stripe is an exhilarating combination!
