what is the price of a case of beer

Going to spend a couple of months on the big island, first time to Hawaii so will probably have a few questions to ask, so the first one is probably what most Canadians would want to know,

how much for a case of beer....

Well, you're in luck. US prices for wine, beer and spirits are significantly lower than in Canada.

There are also many options for outlets to purchase....Grocery stores, Drug stores, Kmart, Walmart, Costco etc.

Here is a recent Ad from the local grocery advertising 24 Natural Beer for $12.99, Rum 1 3/4 liter for $15.99.

Prices in Canada as you know would be close to $40 for the Beer and near $50 for a bottle of Rum that size.

I only drink Belgian, Dutch or German beers, at least one of the brands is always on sale at KTA or Longs, $10.99 or $11.99 for a small case (12 bottles/cans.)

Kona Brew is 9.99 a six-pack (no cases), on sale 7.99-8.99.

Redhook ESB or IPA, $16.99 a 12-pak, 13.99 sale.

I only drink bottled beer, no cans, so can't comment on that.

my hubby's a beer drinker - I am not. We always pick his up at Safeway. (along with our other groceries) Get the Safeway card if you don't have one. It will save you $.

Add another 4.25% tax. About $.65/case depending on the price.

Add another $.06 per bottle/can for deposit. So about $1.44/case. Most visitors just leave the empties for the maids or if outside, the homeless.

Between tax & deposit, figure $2.00 per case.

I go to Safeway most every day, it's convenient and have the best selection of most everything, but don't buy beer there, their prices are the highest.

My husband also gave up on Safeway and switched to KTA for better price.
