DoE celebrates gold medal beer

The Cayman Islands Brewery’s latest addition to their lineup, White Tip Lager, recently was crowned the best lager at the Caribbean Rum and Beer Festival in Barbados.  

This is the second year running that the brewery takes the crown, as CayLight won the title in 2010. This year, it had to settle for second place behind White Tip. Ironshore Bock also took silver in the category for strong beers.

“With three international judges blind tasting 30 beers, that is quite impressive for us,” said James Mansfield of Cayman Islands Brewery. “Next time that we go to the brewers’ convention it will be interesting to see what they think of us now, as we are still only 4 1/2 years old, compared to other breweries like Banks Barbados, which is 45 years old.”

A unique aspect of White Tip Lager is that a percentage of the sales goes to the Department of Environment’s shark conservation programmes.
“The actual link-up with the Department of Environment was unique, and we will be cutting the first cheque in January,” Mr. Mansfield said. Read the whole story here.
