Whether in conversation, research, advertising or obviously geography, Saint Lucia can’t possibly be separated from the Pitons. The twin peaks are not just a landmark but add character to our island. So it’s no wonder that our local beer, brewed here in Saint Lucia, is named ‘Piton’. Windward and Leeward Brewery describes it as a pilsner lager concocted from malt, hops, yeast and maize. These ingredients and the local brewing technique make for a refreshing and frothy beer. Also referred to as The Beer of Saint Lucia, Piton Beer was first introduced to the market in October 1992; Piton Malta and Piton Shandy, in various flavours, were subsequent additions to the brand. Piton Beer has become an essential for “Chilling in the West Indies”, whether it’s partying with friends, a quiet night in or as a perfect partner for fish and chips. Even better, when Piton Beer is used in the batter for the fish, it makes the British staple ever so Saint Lucian!

Here are a few places where you can taste Piton Beer-Batter Fish and Chips:

The Saint Lucia Golf and Country Club, Cap Estate

The bar at the Club provides an assortment of meals, fish and chips being one of the most popular.

Orlando’s restaurant, Soufriere

Chef Orlando always adds a unique twist to his dishes so it’s safe to say Piton Beer is one of his secret ingredients. He uses it for both fried chicken and fish.

Dasheene Restaurant at Ladera Resort, Soufriere

Joy for the tastebuds and the eyes: enjoy your fish and chips while admiring the stunning view of the Pitons.

The Naked Fisherman, Cap Maison Resort, Cap Estate

This restaurant is on the beach so the sound of waves will be in the background as you tuck into your fish and chips.

Jammer’s by Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort (Trouya, south of Rodney Bay)

Jammer’s is one of several restaurants at Windjammer. It overlooks the beach and is a top spot for watching the sun go down. We recommend that you wash down your fish and chips with a cool beer, available by the bottle or on draft.
