Started back in 2007, Cayman Islands Brewery is the island’s best spot for sampling delicious craft beers. Choose from a pint of their flagship, Caybrew, or up the flavor with Ironshore Bock, or chocolaty 345 Stout. While it’s possible to simply visit the brewery and sample a casual pint, many visitors choose to partake in the short, but interesting brew tour, where you see the process of beer being brewed, fermented, bottled, and sold. All tours include free samples of their regular and seasonal beers, and the brewery is a favorite stop on the island’s distillery and brewery tours. Aside from providing the Caymans with beer, Cayman Islands Brewery is also renowned for their sustainable, philanthropic practices, with beer sold in recyclable bottles and proceeds devoted to conservation.
Insider Tip: If you plan to stay on the island for a while, and need some beers for the house, visit the brewery early in the trip to stock up on discount beers.

Cayman Islands Brewery is located about 10 minutes from the Georgetown port, and cab fares are approximately $20 for 3 people of $5-$6/person.
