The Quest for Amstel
« on: December 04, 2011, 11:38:34 AM »

In North America, Amstel Light is readily available, but proper Amstel (not Light) isn't distributed because Heineken (owner of Amstel) doesn't want to compete with itself. 

For Christmas, I want to buy a friend a case of proper Amstel.  I've searched online for an international shipper, but have found nothing. 

Does anyone live in a region that has proper Amstel?  Would you be willing to ship a case to me in the U.S.?  I'll gladly paypal you the money in advance, plus a little extra for your trouble.

I'll have alook how much they are in Tescos tomorrow. You want tinnies or bottles?

Love a bit of Amstel, only decent thing to drink if we end up in The Temple.

I like a nice Amstel too.  Not many places near me have it on draught but when you stumble across a place it's a pleasant surprise.

EDIT:  If you dont get round to searching Failed then let me know and I'll pick some up.

I'd prefer bottles, but if that causes shipping problems (glass might be dangerous or crazy expensive to ship overseas) I'll settle for cans.   :)

How are we in finding some to ship to me in the US?    :-*

To get it before Christmas, it probably needs to be shipped before this weekend.  The first person to find me a case give me a total, I'll paypal the money to you asap.   :)

Can you even ship alcohol like that? I live on the border, and they give you a bastard of a time just trying to drive across if you have any adult beverages in the car...

... Of course, maybe that was because they were all open, and I offered the customs officer a swig.
Your mom!

;D

I thought you had to have a license to ship alcohol overseas - though with the proper customs forms I dunno, might be possible. I haven't seen any sold in the shops here, just that one pub. I wanted some for the weekend.
