Red Stripe Jamaican Lager

I'm gonna put some more input into reviewing not just specific beers but what's going on with advertising, corporate beer news, and other interesting facts. But today, another beer.

Red Stripe Jamaican Lager. A good beer, nice flavor, relatively cheap compared to its competitors. Not my favorite but a step above the ordinary lagers and one I'd recommend. The company has done a nice job marketing itself as the beer from Jamaica, as I don't even know what #2 is. And when I spoke to this lady from Jamaica outside my office a few months ago about her 50th birthday bash, all she talked about was the Rum and the Red Stripe that the group was drinking. So I am sure the locals like it too, maybe more the younger crowd. It's not just the marketing. I've had the local beer in many places and this seems to be a distinctive beer that the locals and outsiders like, alike.

Until tomorrow, or whenever my kids and wife let me drink another.
