Kalik in Exuma

How Kalik Beer Got its Name… Maybe

We meet all kinds of colorful characters on our uncommon adventures. As Patrick noted before, it is our interactions with these folks that form the basis for a lot of what makes our trips so special. You just never know what you’ll learn when you take the time to sit down and talk to a local somewhere in the Caribbean. Take, for instance, the time I learned the alleged name origin of The Bahamas’ Kalik Beer…

I was at the local fish fry in Exuma waiting for Rasta Steve to fix up his self-proclaimed “World’s Best Conch Salad” for me. You know, just minding my own business. 

Then, suddenly, out of nowhere, I got this unsolicited lesson on where Kalik Beer got its name…

How Kalik Got Its Name... Allegedly

Is his story legit? Honestly, I have no idea.

The experience of hearing it here in this way from this guy, though, makes the story eternally great to me.

Truly, I was as happy to get the lesson as he seemed to be about delivering it…
