I like a cold beer on Liberty too, but I'm too cheap
, I mean frugal, to pay much for it. Depends on where you are for rum vs. beer. Bahamas
- rum is cheap
, beer is really expensive. Dominican Republic
- oh, to have more cold Presidente on board. Practically cheaper than clean water
. Was told to stock up on beer before leaving the DR, but did I? Nooo. Got to Puerto Rico
and found out it really is a rum country, er, commonwealth, er, protectorate, er, not sure what, but their beer is expensive (and worse, comes in 10 oz cans!). Actually, I don't recall
inexpensive, good beer between the DR and Grenada
, where it also comes in little 10 oz bottles. At least its 3 for 10 (EC, that is, so 3 for about $4 US) at happy hour.
Since I used to homebrew before cruising, I bought a couple of kits and now I brew my own in a 6 gallon plastic water
jug (which holds water when not holding fermenting beer). I bottle it in recycled plastic soda/tonic/etc. bottles. just gotta make sure they are pressure bottles. It secondary fermets in the bilge
, and a month later, tastes great.
and we drink a fair amount of rum.
