Prestige is a widely consumed beer of Haiti, produced by Brasserie Nationale d'Haïti in Port-au-Prince. It is an American style lager and is the best-selling beer in Haiti with a 98% market share.[1] So far it is the only native beer brand. Prestige beer is available in some parts of the United States and other countries.

History[edit]

Prestige was founded in 1976 by Michael Madsen, from one of the richest industrial families in Haiti that arrived from Denmark in the late 19th century.
