    Will be dropping into the 7 mile beach area sometime soon, I know all about Red Stripe, is there any micro's giving it a go down here ? How about Dragon Stout Spitfire , it is from RedStripe, and I had it in Cayman's and was awesome, even saved the250 ml bottle, it was 10 o/o, bottle says brewed in Kingston.Help?

    Sorry I can't be of much help- all I know at this point is what gets served at the resorts. Draught Red Stripe in Jamaica is not that bad, really. Dragon Stout is also good. They have their own Guinness Foreign Extra also which is excellent, with more dark fruit elements from the yeast signature.

    My next visit I do plan on venturing out more, so if you find something I'd appreciate it if you could post back. Have a great trip, and cheers!

    I was in Kingston for 2 months last year for work.
    Dragon Stout Spitfire is definitely there along w/every type of red stripe you can imagine. There's red stripe, red stripe light, red stripe light ginger, red stripe light apple, red stripe light lime. There's also Guinness foreign stout which is a bit different than regular Guinness. All in all I would say get used to drinking rum as there aren't many options & in Jamaica they don't plan well so finding anything on draft is tough to do as it's usually out.
    For the most part it was Red Stripe & Red Stripe Light for me while I was there along with hard liquor
