    I have 4 Balashi left in my fridge and am down to my last 12 pack of Chill (bought 3 at Duty Free in airport on the way home). Taste much better in Aruba but I will drink a couple here and there just because.

    Yes Arubans in general hate Balashi and we can't for the life of us understand why tourists like it so much. Probably just the "island vibe" or something haha. Its great for the economy though that people buy it!

    Schlitz, along with other beers, were available as a GIQ.

    Now it makes sense why bud light was sold out everywhere the week after Carnival a few years ago. And also that I was really meant to be Aruban
