The focus of this study was to understand the role of alcohol consumption within Grenadian male social support networks. In particular, the research presented examines the degree to which a 15% Value Added Tax (VAT) adopted in 2008, influences the drinking habits of this cohort. While VAT was found to have no significant impact on drinking habits, the data collected points to the overwhelming significance of alcohol consumption as a dominant cultural practice in post-colonial Grenada. The habitual consumption of alcohol as a Grenadian cultural practice should be studied further as a social determinant. In an effort to design effective social remediation programs, additional data collected regarding Grenadian male alcohol consumption will inform and compliment earlier published work by one of the researchers, which found that traditional cultural norms for Grenadian male identity endorse male physical dominance over their partners.
