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.


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.

Prestige beer was launched in 1976, less than 2 years after BRANA's creation. In 2000, it won the gold medal at the World Beer Cup for an American-style lager [2] and won gold for a second time in 2012.[3] In 2005, Prestige has started being exported to select Canadian and to American cities.


Prestige beer is available in a 12 oz bottle.
