The history of Mackeson Triple Stout began in Hythe , Kent ; one of Britain 's famous “cinque ports”. It was at the Hythe Brewery during the nineteenth century that the Mackeson brothers – William and Henry – started to brew the beer that was to make their family name famous around the world. While the Hythe brewery has long since closed, visitors to Hythe can still see the Mackeson family Vault at the local churchyard and the Mackeson name is remembered on local street signs.
Originally essentially a Kentish beer with few aspirations to reach consumers beyond the south of England , Mackeson Triple Stout became a “national” – and later an international – brand when the Mackeson brewery was acquired by Whitbread during the 1920's. Now owned by the InBev, the Mackeson brand continues to be brewed in the UK and is also produced in the Caribbean by Carib Brewery and in the USA .
Mackeson Triple Stout is a “milk stout”; produced using lactose (also known as “milk sugar”). It is the use of lactose in the brewing process that gives Mackeson the “creamy” characteristic that makes the beer so different to the more widely known “dry stouts” and has ensured the continuing support of consumers around the world.

Cerveja de marca inglesa produzida nas plantas da Carib Brewery. O exemplar que eu bebi havia sido produzida em Granada. Tomei uma garrafa na praia, direto no gargalo. Comprei-a gelada, mas ela já havia esquentado, provavelmente acima dos 12 graus recomendados. Nada demais. Lembra a nossa Caracu.
