Red Stripe is a world-famous lager, developed by Desnoes & Geddes of Jamaica, starting in 1928. At that time, Jamaica was a British colony, and the owners were British residents of the island country. According to the current owners, Diageo, who purchased D&G in 1993, Red Stripe lager was originally a much different beer, "heavy and dark- more like an ale". At some point, the beer was reformulated to its present, yellow-straw-golden presentation and light body.
Produced in Kingston, Jamaica, Red Stripe has been contract-brewed in Pennsylvania for the US market since 2012, and those labels will state, "Jamaican-style Lager" rather than the typical "Jamaican Lager" description. There is also a Red Stripe Light available for the light lager drinkers.
The consumer will find Red Stripe Lager in 11.2-oz. bottles, 24-oz. bottles, and 16-oz. cans. I was unable to ascertain the availability of a draft Red Stripe, at the time of this writing.
Having sampled Red Stripe and Red Stripe Light, this writer can attest to its light, bready, and highly drinkable character and, thus, its mass appeal. A sampling is suggested.
