To celebrate American Craft Beer Week, Carnival Cruise Line has created a special tropical-flavored beer served excessively at the RedFrog Pub & Brewery aboard Carnival Vista.

The new Miami Guava Wheat beer was unveiled this past weekend at a ceremony during which the ship’s expert brewmaster Colin Presby tapped the first cask of the new brew.  Guests onboard were the first to sample it, which was hand-crafted by Presby and inspired by Vista‘s homeport.  Miami Guava Wheat reflects the tropics with a light body and notes of tangy pink guava, the primary ingredient in Miami’s popular guava pastries.

Available on a limited basis, the brew joins three other original draft beers brewed onboard Carnival Vista: ThirstyFrog Port Hoppin’ IPA, ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat, and FriskyFrog Java Stout.  Other food and drink offerings around the ship include the cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar, the New England-inspired Seafood Shack, JiJi Asian Kitchen serving authentic dishes from across the Far East, Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse, and the family-style Italian eatery Cucina del Capitano.

Carnival Vista operates 6 and 8-day Caribbean cruises from PortMiami to the Caribbean, and will move to Galveston, Texas in autumn 2018 when Carnival Horizon launches year-round service from Miami.
