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!
