I'm with you on this one. If I'm paying that much for a vacation I can afford $3 for a beer. The prices are no different than bar prices up here in Vancouver. 3/day would be $63US and if you were to bring in 1.5 doz that would cost you $20. So to save $40 on an $800 trip doesn't seem worth it, esp if flying and the chance of confiscation or broken bottles or burst cans. The "Pain in the Butt " factor is too high, I'll just cut back on beer prior to the trip.
oh yeah, driving to terminal for next trip so luggage WILL get tossed around :-)
