American Beer, CUR

Traveling down to Curacao at the end of the month, and was wondering if American beer was available on the island? If so, where? Thanks for the info in advance! Come on Irish, help us out!

I guess we'll have to discover this for ourselves. I have found that this forum is not anywhere near as active as the SXM one. I know we're all used to an influx of immediate answers on that one.

OMG, Balashi is the locally brewed beer and our favorite of any beer. Only brewed on Curacao, not even exported to Aruba. And try their new brand, Hapi Bon.

Balashi (most of the brands) has been available on Aruba for years.

Not American but Grolsch, (sp?) is fantastic served in a bucket of ice on Bucuti's beach with salt on your lips. Ahhh. Nothing to compare.

I saw on an old (2102) post on tripadvisor that Coors light and Budweiser are (were?) available in the grocery stores in Curacao. We'll see.

Thanks Irish, me and the wife can handle Coors Light! We normally drink the over the age of 40 beer ( Michelob ultra ), we are fairly sure that will not be available in the island, but we will try our best to find it. And yes, I guess we will just have to find it, new adventure!

We have never heard of Balashi. Can you possibly describe the flavor, and what American beer it would come close too? We will try it, always up to try new flavors!

While in the ABC islands try Amstel Bright (no, not light). It was originally brewed in Curacao and it is now brewed in the Netherlands. It is not available in the USA. It's only imported to the Caribbean. It's a smooth beer, not too bitter, very similar to Corona.
