A new St Lucia beer
By the Caribbean Journal staff
St Lucia’s Capella Marigot Bay Resort has teamed with chocolatier Cocao Carib and local beer company Antilia Brewing Company to launch its own beer: Capella’s Moon Bay Chocolate Stout.
The beer which is specifically brewed for the resort and its guests, incorporates a great proportion of freshly-roasted, local St Lucian cacao nibs in a complex ale that uses six different barley malts.
The stout has a deep brown look and a heavy taste of chocolate.
“To my knowledge, we are making history as this is the first collaboration between a brewery and an ultra-luxury destination resort in the West Indies and beyond,” said Andrew Hashey, CEO of Antillia.
The beer is available only in bottles (at $16 USD/liter bottle) and on tap at the resort and the property’s marina. It can also be found at the Antillia Brewery Taproom in St Lucia’s Rodney Bay.
“Antillia has created a world class beer for our resort and Capella Marina,” said Capella Food and Beverage Manager Glenn Sorensen. “This is a beer that puts us on the map for beer tourism. More importantly it adds another special and unique experience that only our guests can enjoy.”
