Aruba has a TREMENDOUS beer scene for a carribbean island. Dutch and Belgian beer are availible.
The local beer Balashi, is OK. Not bad.
Heineken on tap tends to be fresh and delicious.
Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is a real treat, too.
But in the supermarkets and at a few resturants (Madam Jeanette's, the Belgian Cafe) you will find great Belgian and Dutch beers including La Chouffe, DeKonick, Palm, La Trappe, Nostradamus, etc.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the supermarket on day 1 and get some nice breads and dutch cheeses and charcuterie items and ales and make that my daily lunch while sitting out on the deck. Cannot be beat!!!
