Kalik is a beer brand from the Bahamas. It is made by the Commonwealth Brewery in Nassau which also produces Heineken, Guinness and Vitamalt. Currently there are four variations of Kalik beer: regular Kalik with 5% alcohol per volume, Kalik Lime (4%), Kalik Light (4%), and extra-strength Kalik Gold (7%).
Kalik was designed by Heineken International in 1988 based on studies of the Bahamian market. It seized market leadership from Beck's which had dominated the local market before. According to the bottle label the name of Kalik is derived from sound of cowbells heard during the annual Bahamian festival of Junkanoo.
