This month, Carnival Cruise Line launched its newest and largest ship, the 3,954-passenger Carnival Vista. That wouldn’t necessarily be news, except that has its own brewery on board, the Red Frog Pub & Brewery, the first North American ship to have a brewery.
Brewmaster Colin Presby makes three styles of beer, and though they are based on recipes from Miami’s Concrete Beach Brewery, all three are available exclusively on the ship: ThirtsyFrog Port Hoppin’ IPA, ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat, and FriskyFrog Java Stout.
“What we’re trying to do is make high quality, full-flavored beer,” Presby told USA Today. “I want this to compare very favorably to any craft brewery wherever a guest comes from.”
