The beer cans have long been part of the islands life.
They’re also a symbol of the island’s identity.
In fact, the island is home to two different versions of the same beer, each with its own unique taste and flavour.
The island is also home to the country’s most famous beer cans, the Kriekers.
“The Krieker is the oldest beer can in the world,” says Patrick O’Brien, who has owned Krieks in St. John’s since 1997.
“It’s really popular.
People love the beer.”
O’Brian’s family started brewing beer in 1878, and he’s one of the few remaining brewers in the island.
O’Briens family is still brewing, with a brewery in St John’s, and it’s not just a family business.
Olin’s is also still making beer, and its a little different.
“Our beer is a bit different, with more hops,” O’Connor says.
“We don’t use the same hops as our beer.
Our beer is more malt and less hop aroma.
We use our own yeast.”
The Krieks are a big part of St. Johns identity.
They have a name and are famous for being the only place in St Kitts and Nevis where you can get a beer.
O’s father, who is also the chairman of the St Johns Brewery Association, says the island has a lot of history and heritage, and they’re proud to be part of it.
“That’s a good thing,” Ollie says.
He adds that beer can islands has had a long and proud history.
Ollies father was born in the KRIekers, and his grandfather, who also has a beer can, came from a family of brewers.
OLLIES dad was born on the KREKA and his grandparents father was a KRIeker.
“My dad was the first person to bring beer to St John,” Oli says.
And, his grandfather was a beer maker, too.
“He was a huge beer maker on the island,” OLLIE says.
In the 1920s, the Ollys moved to St. Kitts, and in 1947, Ollied bought the Krenks brewery.
Olli and his wife were the first to brew in the province, and the couple also opened Ollily Brewery in St George in the 1960s.
“They had a great beer culture on the St. Kildare side, but the Kreeks are a little bit more traditional,” Oller says.
