Carib Brewery is one of Trinidad’s founding beer makers. They started producing Carib Lager Beer in 1950, and it’s still the most popular drink in the island. They make 1,200,000 hectoliters every year.

Full-bodied and refreshing, Carib Lager is immensely popular in Trinidad, but there’s more. The company also makes a stunning Pilsner light, a Radler and a fantastic Milk Stout.

Carib has teamed up with Heineken and Guinness, so they also sell some of the most prominent international brands in Trinidad.

2. Stag

Stag is a man’s man premium quality European style lager. It’s crafted by Carib themselves, but it’s not just fresh and lively; it’s a statement of boldness.

Stag’s strength of character and robust flavor are hard to match, making this flavorsome beer a splendid partner for Trinidad’s hearty food, including the famous meat pies, stewed chicken and fish broths.

Stag is one of Trinidad’s most characterful beers, and once you try it, you know you can’t have just one.

3. Caribé Tropical Hard Cider

One drink that has taken Trinidad by storm is the delicious Caribé Tropical Hard Cider produced by the folks at Florida Beer.

With 4.5% ABV, these fruit-forward concoctions, available in Pineapple, Blood Orange, and Rosé flavors, are the very essence of the Caribbean.

Apple juice, Champagne yeast and natural flavors give Caribé their charming personality — just a proper hard cider for a warm evening at Trinidad’s beaches

4. 868 Lager Beer

From the same Carib and Stag makers, the 868 Lager is a fresh, vibrant and young beer that adds variety to the already exciting Caribbean beer scene. An affordable local beer that appeals to locals and visitors alike — it’s undeniable Trini.

Expect a straightforward, thirst-quenching beer with layers of malty flavors without being overly complicated, just a good everyday beer in tune with the island’s festive spirit.
