A labor dispute has caused a beer shortage in the Caribbean, mere weeks before the celebrations of Carnival. Caribbean Development Company Ltd., one of the region’s largest breweries, has seen its production of local favorite Stag beer fall to 40 percent of normal output since a lockout began on May 24.
