Will be packing 44 cans with foam padding and air sealed in large vacuum sealed space bag. This will limit movement and protect.

    Those on the island Oct 15-29th. If you see any breaking news of a US man apprehended in customs.... Just me supporting my diva beer taste. )

    Sounds like you've got this well thought out. Best of luck! Keep in mind that the 'movie rights' might be worth a fortune!

    Years ago we use to bring home 2 6 packs of Bright, they fit perfectly in our rolling backpack, one on top of the other! Until the liquid ban

    Good luck!! Please update with how it went/cost. I am a nut brown and amber lover, also hard to come by and my husband can only drink gluten free beer which is impossible to come by. We would love to "carry in" for our April vacation. Our retirement goal is to open a microbrew in Aruba

    The suspense is killing me. I had to subscribe to this thread just to see what happens during the great Infiltration of IPA into Aruba.

    If the custom agents catch you, they will force you drink it all on the spot, lol. Did you ever see locked up abraod? Good luck with the smuggling attempt. Of cource I am joking here, I would go for it too.

    For many years, I would bring in 2 cases of beer to Aruba. There were not any charges for extra luggage then, so it did not cost anything more to transport the beer. Also, since customs never checked anything, we never paid any import fees. However, as I got older, it was too much of a hastle to carry the extra weight around, so we have not brought in anything for the last few years. Another thing which discouraged us from transporting the beer was that one year a can exploded in the suitcase and beer was everywhere.
