    My sentiments exactly! Such a fine tasty Lager and they don’t export to Canada?, C’mon guy’s get with the program. St. Lucia is too far away to buy Piton’s.
    By the way why did you stop producing Piton “Radler”? It was the absolute best. Mix it with a splash of vodka and you had the best “Polish” Margarita ever. Go ahead try it nice and cold. “I swear it tastes like “More”. As in you’ll want more of it!

    Cheers St. Lucia….
