3. Red Stripe (Jamaica)
Couldn’t possibly put together a list like this without this squat little guy, could we? Red Stripe carries the flag for the region around the world when it comes to beer much in the same way reggae does for music. That’s a good thing, as Red Stripe is a very good beer. It’s also quite worldly, combining malted grain from Canada, the UK and France with hops from the Yakima Valley in the United States and fresh well water from Jamaica in its formula. As synonymous with the Caribbean as any beer not named Carib, Red Stripe bears a clean, refreshing flavor right through to the end, leading you invariably to another.
