    Heading to Barbados tomorrow. I've found two local breweries on the island, and the liquor stores with web sites appear thinly stocked. Other than "drink rum", anyone have any good beer suggestions? Thanks!

    Updating this one after a quick (24 hour) visit last week. Thanks to DoctorZombies for his place reviews. Unfortunately the island is not as walkable as some (at least from my hotel) so i could not get to the places he recommended.

    Banks, the local beer, was pretty easily available and pretty solid as a beach beer. Deputy was another local that was ok.

    I walked to a gas station convenience store and found the Barbados rendition of Guinness Foreign Extra that was delicious and about $2 a bottle. That's my best bet.
