The editors of Caribbean Travel Magazine have compiled a list of the best Caribbean beers, matching them with the perfect food accompaniment. This is what they write:
The Caribbean isn’t Bavaria, and though the region’s many indigenous brews (this roundup is hardly comprehensive) may not necessarily rank as great beers by great-beer standards, ice-cold, each one surely is the best possible companion to the iconic island foods of its homeland.
