    Beer prices

    Can someone tell me the best place to purchase cases of beer? Bud Light preferred or possibly Amstel Bright if cheaper? TIA
    Also does he duty free store by baggage pick up sell beer or just liquor?

    We are bud light drinkers. We typically buy at Superfoods. 24 cans of 10oz Bud lights are around $42. Yes, it's expensive but still cheaper than the convenience stores in the high rose area where we paid $32 for 12 of the same 10 Oz cans. We buy 2 cases for the week and even with the cost of a taxi for the grocery store, it's worth it.
    If you use beer koozie you will want to buy the ones that fit Michelob Ultra cans, the beers are skinnier.

    For bars, Carlitos on Palm Beach has the best price I think, buckets 5 bottles for $22.

    I like Amstel Brights and will drink them at happy hour but they are more like a Corona than a bud light.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    It's just another one of my Aruba superpowers..LOL!!

    I wanted to add that last year we arrived the week after the Carnivale Grande Parade and Superfoods was out of Bud Light...Oh the horror...but we ended up settling for Coors Light which was about the same price. We don't rent a car so it wasn't worth it for us to check other stores.

    I must say that I won't drink light beer and will settle for a Balashi on occasion. But I have found several good Belgian and Dutch beers/ales in Superfoods. They're not cheap but they're still cheaper than what I would pay at any of the bars for a Balashi.
    Next Aruba trip in

    Just wanted to link back to this thread, page 4 regarding PriceSmart:

If you cancel the membership after your stay of a month or less you receive a refund of approx. $33.90. Seems to me that they made more money with the 10% surcharge than $3.08 a month. Though I wouldn't take the time to go back to the store to get a refund. Wonder if you can buy the membership, buy your groceries/liquor, etc and get the refund on the same day.
