    Cool In Search of Red Stripe (beer)

    Hallo,

    After my foiled attempt of taking my beer with me to Aruba, I settled on Red Stripe in October. I found it easily one day, but then had to go on a scavenger hunt the next few attempts during our stay. Has anyone seen Red Stripe recently, or know where it is most likely always available? We shop at Ling's typically and they had it once.

    Any help appreciated in my quest for sand, solitude and some cold ones! Leaving Sunday.

    If Ling's doesn't have it, check the new Super Food. They had a pretty nice beer selection (not in the attached liquor store called Cheers but in the grocery store itself.)

    Ling's has always had Red Stripe in previous visits. Probably overpriced like all other beers on the Island.

    Remember, all of the beer except Balashi is imported. Even here in the States they jack up the price of imported beer.
