Especially in the Caribbean. The people here are fiercely loyal to their indigenous brews, but that's also because, I think, few have ever sampled anything else. (Ewan admitted to only having tried Jamaica's Red Stripe and a Carib from Trinidad and Tobago.) Yet that may be changing. St. Lucia, for example, hosted its first Oktoberfest this past fall, with Piton served alongside Europe's Edelweiss and Pelforth Brune. Still, for many locals island pride shines for the beers brewed throughout the Caribbean. When you island hop, you'll find that while Red Stripe is certainly the best known of the bunch, it's not necessarily the best tasting -- unless, of course, you're Jamaican.
