Our Story

One of the most popular theories of how we got our name is that the beer was named from the red stripe that runs down the side of the uniform of the Jamaican police.

Former employees recall that one day, brewmaster Paul Geddes was stopped by a police officer, who was doing a routine spot check when someone from the brewhouse called out to ask him what name they should give the new beer.

He simply glanced down at the policeman who was inspecting his documents, pondered for a moment, then replied, “Let’s call it RED STRIPE Beer.”
