Day 1 of the Jamaica Food and Drink Kitchen Beer Fest was a beer-lover’s dream.

The two-day celebration of some of Jamaica’s best locally brewed beers like Red Stripe, Guinness, Heineken, Dragon, Red Stripe Flavours, and other imported beers started last Thursday (June 15).

Patrons flocked to the venue to enjoy the after-work beer fest with many feasting on tantalizing and zesty hors d’oeuvres. 

In addition, there was juicy bbq chicken lollipops, cheesy lasagne rolls with chocolate tarts, and brownie bars for dessert, crafted by resident chef, Celeste Gordon alongside chef Damian Stewart, Broken Plate, Jangas Soundbar and so many others, who brought Barilla and Bertolli.

The evening saw exciting giveaways, great music, and vibes. Night two anticipates an epic turnout.
