    I'm with you Glenn. Between Heineken, Amstel Bright and Balashi/Balashi Chill, I can easily "survive" my week in Aruba

    Once your pallet is accustom to very hoppy IPA, all else is like water. I did try Heineken and tried others on previous trips but they just don't work. I even did a "de-hop" for a week prior, only drinking "normal" beers. Still didn't work.

    This picture sums it all up:

    In my opinion, and that's all it is, no matter where you are in the world, (including Aruba) and especially if spicy food is involved, you can always count on the Heineken fire department! Works for me.

    I really did not enjoy Balashi Chill that much. Ended up drinking Bud Lite. There were 10 in our group and not one of us got our luggage checked by Aruba customs.

    Customs probably just waits and checks guys with many bags dripping from the sides and tears in their eyes....

    I sent an email to Aruba Customs in DC for an official "per liter" beer charge. This will probably put a flag on me in the Passport database for a full bag AND cavity search upon arrival!

    The biggest problem that I see with your plan is that a bottle of beer weighs about 1.3 pounds on average. Once you factor in the weight of the bag itself, you'll be lucky to get more than 30-ish bottles in a bag. The other problem is the abuse the bottles will take when they are being loaded and unloaded. I would expect to lose several of them due to baggage handling.

    It sure seems like an awful lot of hassle just because you only like beer with a lot of hops.

    Cans of beer, not bottles. I got numbers that showed (2) 24 can cases was under the 50lb per bag limit.
