Heard the price of beer went up in Costa Rica

Just wondering what the price of a beer is in Chicos' these days. Heard that The Government raised the taxes on alcohol and was wondering how that translated to the bottom line at the bar. Let's face it, don't mess with the price of beer when one is on holidays, cheers, Joyce

Tico bars @1,000 colones for an Imperial, @1,500 for a Bavaria Negra...the best deals are usually the Large beers at 1,500 colones and you get more than 2 beers out of it. Who knows if the price increase is temporary or not, they are always trying to discourage over-drinking during the holidays so we'll see...

We went to a Cantina yesterday and got three Pilsen and a "Guatro" (about 6 oz in a small glass coke bottle) of Black Label for 10,000c or about 20 bucks including tax and tip. It would be impossible to find these prices in Canada.
