Our Experiences with Kubuli Beer
We enjoyed Kubuli beer for the first time on our January 2009 Eastern Caribbean cruise while stopped at Dominica. While on Dominica, we took a tour of the island by taxi. Our driver, Ramon Legge, stopped at a local grocery store so we could pick up some beer for the ride. We always try the local beers, so when we saw Kubuli beer and the Shandy flavor, we grabbed a few of both. The Shandy came in both Lime and Ginger flavor. They had less alcohol by volume (2%) than the beer did.
Kubuli Beer comes in two Shandy flavors as well.
Where can you find Kubuli Beer in the United States?
Good question…The answer is probably “nowhere.” We contacted their marketing department in January of 2010 and have yet to receive a response. According to their website, it doesn’t appear to be available outside of the Caribbean. Because Dominica is such a small island, my guess is that the beer will not get distributed to many other islands, if any at all. Besides, the best place to enjoy a Kubuli beer is while visiting Dominica! Be sure to add it to your travel bucket list. This beautiful island boasts tropical rainforests, black sand beaches, and a vibrant local culture.
