More questions--first timers to AC. What does a case of Biliken beer cost in US$? I checked some really old subjects and it sounds pretty pricey!

It can be. Are you staying where there's a kitchen? You can make the price worth it by going with Simon's service and having everything delivered to your room. Awesome service from an awesome local philanthropist/businessman

I will have a Belikin -- put it on klcman's tab.

perhaps a local can give you a temperature reading on current prices at the markets...

What we did :

Buy a few cases from Simon (waiting for you in your fridge !!).

Then , when you have your cart (if you rent one) go to the beer distributor and buy enough for the rest of the vacation, at a savings.

Prices range from $3.25 to $4.50BZ (I won't name the store with that price but you'll figure it out quick enough) per bottle in the grocery stores plus the case which is $5BZ. The price at distributors with case is $55.55.

If I had to guess I would bet that you can see the distributor from their front door wink

I would echo what everyone has suggested, let Simon supply you for the first few days and then if you get a cart you can restock at the distributor. If you return a full case of empties in the plastic case you will get a refund on the bottles and the case.

And for what it's worth, you get more bang for the buck if you go with the Belikin Stout.
