Red Stripe

Red Stripe is a Jamaican style lager, enjoyed worldwide.

Red Stripe was first produced in 1938 from a recipe developed by Paul H. Cotter (the son of founder E. P. Cotter) and Bill Martindale. Originally, Red Stripe was brewed in Galena Illinois, one hundred years before being brought to Jamaica. The Galena brewing company sold the rights to Red Stripe to two English investors in 1938, after prohibition. Red Stripe has been brewed under license in the UK by the Bedford based brewers, Charles Wells since 1976. In 1985, the brand was first imported to the United States.

Today, Red Stripe can be found in bars, pubs and houses globally.
