While in San Pedro last week we were able to buy cases of Belikin at the local distributor. I have lost the receipts with the name, but it is directly across from the newest grocery store at the S type curve. It is right where the road changes from stones to sand.

The price was $46 Belize ($23 US) for cold cases. Hot beer was about $2.00 less per case. This included a $6.80 Belize ($3.40 US) deposit on the bottles. You will get that money back if you return the empties. They were not open on Sunday when we tried to return 6 empty cases, so we gave the bottles to some local kids that could turn them in for the money. You would have thought we had given them $100 each they way they reacted.

This is a great way to stock up your in room fridge to make sure you have enough.

Any ideas on how to go about getting Belikin beer in the State? My local distributor can't get it!

I heard of these two truckers that would bootleg brew from Arkansas to Texas. But I don't know how to get a hold of them.

I don't think Belikin has been sold in the U.S. since 1984, when Belize had a display at the World's Fair in New Orleans and sold beer there. Bowen & Bowen announced a couple of years ago that they were going to expand their brewing capacity to they could export beer, but that hasn't come to fruition yet.

I used to know two guys who bootlegged a truckload of Coors original from Texas to Georgia a little more than 20 years ago -- before you could get Coors anywhere but Texas and Colorado. One of them drove a Trans Am to distract the police. The truck driver had a bassett hound named Fred.

For those of you who don't want to spend the time picking up the beer - just have your hotel order it for you. Seven Seas confirmed that a case will be waiting for me!
