The blind tasting competition took place during the just concluded 2011 Caribbean Rum & Beer Festival held in Barbados, hosted at the Divi Southwinds Beach Resort Hotel.
In a hard fought contest the judging panel sampled over 30 brews and made their decisions based upon four criterions; Appearance, Aroma, Taste and Overall Impression. This year the Festival played host to world renowned Brewmaster Mr. Garrett Oliver as well as Mr. Mark Mckenna author of ‘A Guide to Caribbean Beer’.
The Caribbean Rum & Beer Festival is set to become the Caribbean’s premier promotion and retailing event for rum and beer beverages.
The 3rd Caribbean Rum & Beer Festival will be held in Grenada on 2 - 3 November 2012.
