They now have a few good IPA's at the Carrefour supermarket. Your welcome. I tend to drink rum when I am in the Carribean. And lots of French wine.

I'm an IPA gal myself, especially living on LI with so many awesome breweries, but I drank Carib or Presidente when I wasn't drinking Painkillers or Rum Punch!

Pelikaan is an on island craft brewer, Blue Martini in GC served their Irma IPA (American IPA style) when we were there in November. Super U in GC seems to have a small selection of imported bottled beer, had a nice one from Corsica made with chestnuts (Biera Corsa Pietra) and they had a few Belgians as well.
Cheers,
Dave.

LaGoonies has a nice selection of IPA's and Beers manufactured on the island!!! Names I'm not good with, beer isn't my thing. But I went there with a friend who is a beer connoisseur ! Also "DD" on Airport road has a big selection too!! We went pub hopping for beer's on the Dutch side. I was the driver. Keeping it safe!!


Sand Gravity, got to love it!

Same here, I’m all about the Rum punches here, had a pair at Driftwood before heading to the airport. Then the plane delay led to another in the airport.

Fellow LIer here, Sand City is my fave here. Yours?
I had 2 cases of IPAs that I picked up from Treehouse up in MA during MLKweekend. Promised myself only one case before SXM, then held onto the other for when I get back. But when in SXM, it was rum punch all week long and champagne.
Oh and I did have some Heineken and Carib on the boat. I’ll get to a trip report soon!

Got back last night and I’m back to IPAs🤘🏽🤘🏽🤘🏽

Big fans of Treehouse in this Long Island household too! But when on Island, it's rum punches, mojitos and G & T's! Glad you enjoyed your trip--looking forward to the trip report.

Don't dismiss a nice chilled Rose on a hot day.

Absolutely. A very cold Cote de Provence is the perfect complement to a lovely French lunch on the beach!

The beer made on island is not very good in my not so humble opinion. Dingy Dock at times has had a beer on tap that was made in Miami that was decent and you might find a craft beer at a store that is ok but I can only drink so much "island beer" so I just switch to vodka club or other cocktails for the most part.


I prefer the Isle seat

Yeah baby! Im a "WHEN IN ROME" drinker...so rum in the islands, IPAs fall and spring,& Gin and tonics are my summer Long Island Goto. I can't have less than 3 bottles of different gins and limes on hand along with Fever tree tonic.

Agreed. Islands are for lagers, so Heineken and Carib. wink

Treehouse all day long when available!! As a New Englander the IPA's are everywhere. Modestman brewing outta Keene,NH is my new favorite. But honestly sign me up for lagers. And when in SXM give me crushable beers or a blended scotch w/ soda water.

Fellow LIer here, Sand City is my fave here. Yours?

Sand City is awesome! My favs right now are Peconic County Brewing Co., Jamesport Farm Brewery and of course, Blue Point Brewery.
Nov/Dec 2020 we were in MA and enjoyed a few breweries as well.
