The Kingston City Beer fest went off a hitch today (April 7) at the JFDF Kitchen in Kingston.

It’s a two-day beer fair that is held in commemoration of National Beer Day, celebrated globally on April 7.

Beer indulgence is synonymous with the a-typical Jamaican event and as a country that celebrates everything, we find a reason to celebrate everything and beer fest is one-such reason to imbibe.

Nicole Pandohie, managing director of JFDF Kitchen described the kitchen as the silver lining of COVID…a space for all the festivals imaginable. She expressed gratitude to the breweries participating and the sponsors that helped to make the event a success.

Red Stripe, Heineken, Select Brands, Royal Jamaican Brewery, and Trouble’s Brewing were among the purveyors of beers at the launch. Combined, these breweries made over 30 beers available for sampling; several of which are completely new to the Jamaican market and one of which is specifically tailored for the festival.

Trouble’s Brewing are the makers of the exclusive Beer Fest brew: Wings Of A Dove.

Other intriguing nibs on the roster for the course of the event are the four beer-ology sessions for tasting, culinary pairings, an after-party, and hop-skotching around Kingston with brewery tours, and more.

Exciting thing’s ahead for the Kingston City Beer Fest and the JFDF Kitchen. Loop News takes the swig!
