be prepared though if you have it in your checked luggage AND aruba customs stops you to search, you could be responsible for duty/tax.

Since a case of beer contains around 6 or 7 liters, I would imagine the duty would be excessive on the overage of what you are allowed (1 liter) versus just buying it at SF, Lings, etc.?? Or would beer fall into a different set of allowances?
I will definitely check it out when we arrive in September. $22 for two liters of rum is a pretty good price. What brand are we talking about though? Is this for local Aruban rums or something more familiar? I buy rum at home for $21 for a 1.75 liter of Cruzan, which is better than Bacardi (in my opinion and in my liquor store employees' opinions also).
