St. Lucians who have developed a fondness for locally brewed beer, Kubuli, will no longer have to travel to Dominica to enjoy it.
The beer is now available at retail outlets, bars and restaurants across St. Lucia, thanks to its distributor in that country, Bryden’s.
It is said that the beer has attracted many fans among St. Lucians, especially those who visit Dominica for the World Creole Music Festival. However, it was not widely available on the island.
Brand Manager of Kubuli in St. Lucia, Kim Florent, told The St. Lucia Star that the beer is being introduced on the island at an affordable price and comes as part of Brydens’ commitment to continue sourcing new, exciting, quality products to be made available to the St Lucian people. “One of the highlights of this great beer is the fact that it is brewed with one hundred percent natural spring water and under the strictest brewing processes and quality checks,” Florent said.
He said the beer gives the discerning St. Lucian drinker a choice. ““And we think that Kubuli is a great choice and one we are proud to be associated with here in the Saint Lucian Market,” he told St. Lucia Star.
Kubuli derives its name from Waitukubuli, the Kalinago name for Dominica. It is brewed by Dominica Brewery & Beverages Ltd. which is located at Snug Corner, Loubiere.
The company employs 70 full time staff and some of its export markets include St. Thomas, St. Croix, Tortola, Anguilla, Antigua, St. Kitts, Montserrat, Martinique, Guadeloupe, St Lucia, Barbados.
Kubuli is brewed with 100 percent natural spring water, the finest malted barley, hops, yeast and sugar and is described as a “German-oriented beer.”
It is the recipient of a Gold award from the reputable “Monde Selection” Quality Awards.
