Turk’s Head Brewery began formal operations in 2001 as the first and (to this day) only brewery operation on Turks and Caicos Island. This brewery, located in central Providenciales, currently produces four types of beer and lager: Turk’s Head Lager, Turk’s Head Amber, Island Hopping Ale (IPA), and Turk’s Head Lite (a light lager). Bottles, cans, and kegs for taps are all manufactured. Seasonal selections, such as a stout for St. Patrick’s Day, are also produced on occasion.
The beer is primarily made from barley grains imported from the United States and Germany. Five different types of hops are used, which add flavor, aroma, and bitterness to beer and are sourced from the Pacific Northwest, New Zealand, and other countries.
The brewery’s operations have recently expanded to include two full-time brewers. Additional varieties, as well as craft beers and beverages, are in the works.
Tours are available five days a week, Monday through Friday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Call ahead to confirm availability and time. Tours include a catwalk above the Brewery Hall and a stop at the Tasting Room, where visitors can sample the various types of beer produced. The cost of an adult ticket is $15. The guided tours last about 30 minutes, not including a stop in the tasting room and gift shop at the end.
The gift shop sells a variety of shirts, can and bottle cozys, trinkets, and other souvenirs.
