    Beer Drinkers - Question

    So I made the mistake of starting to drink IPAs (Indian Pale Ale). This bitter hoppy beer makes nearly all other beers taste like water once you become acclimated to it.... At no time in my four trips to Aruba have I seen this type of beer. Anyone else see any and if so what/where?

    Thanks!

    Why would IPI be in Aruba?

    IPA's are everywhere! All through US, Europe, etc. Very popular in the craft or micro breweries.

    Some are bottled by bigger names like Sierra Nevada. Just reaching out to see if anyone has bumped into this type of beer on the island.

    Oh and Dannyo - Surf Club Owner also! Cheers!

    Thanks!!

    You will have a hard time finding anything like that locally brewed in the Caribbean.

    There is nothing even remotely close to an IPA in Aruba. You may have to settle for a lighter beer or mixed drink. ;o(

    In the years I have been, I have never seen anything other than "normal" beer. Amstel Bright and Heineken it is...

    Thanks and Cheers!
