    Beer Beer Beer Beer

    This post is primarily for forum newbies, with needed input from our forum members that are familiar with beer available on Aruba.

    I got a private message earlier today from a new member whose posting privileges have not yet been activated.

    He is asking about beer choices.

    So beer lovers........what kind of beer do you like? what is readily available in the grocery store? what types are served at bars?

    My husband is more of a beer drinker than i and he likes the balashi and bud.
    Me, not much of a beer lover, but do like it when I am really hot and thirsty AND/Or with pizza or chinese food.

    More of a wine drinker here, but do on occasion enjoy a beer. In Aruba I enjoy Balashi and Chill. I know that Madame Janette restaurant has a special beer menu:

    The best beer to be found on the island while eating out is at Bavaria Aruba. For the room/beach, etc., we usually pick up Amstel Brites (similar to Corona) at Super Food or Lings, or Balashi only because it's local and the least expensive to buy. Beer is hideously expensive in Aruba and the bottle or can sizes are rather small for what you pay.

    I'll second that emotion... beer prices are insane in Aruba and I'm coming from a country that taxes beer through the roof!

    Local Store has a good selection of craft beers. I don't drink much beer anymore, except in Aruba. I like Polar, but I guess it's becoming hard to find with the issues with Venezuela.

    Walt: There are actually two versions of Polar: the Venezuelan and the American... our neighbours swear that the Venezuelan version is the better one though.

    I've tasted both and there IS a difference but, as with most drinks, who cares after two?!?

    When we're in Aruba, we like Balashi, Chill and Amstel Bright.

    I've only had the Venezuelan brew, and I really like the taste. Didn't even know there was an American version, thanks!
