Of course I believe you. It’s like Heineken, original from The Netherlands but I understand the Heineken in the DR is brewed in the DR.
I might have to try it again if it does not taste like skunk pee. Never liked Heineken.

Still tastes like skunk pee - Heineken & Budweiser are the most over rated crappy beers in the world.
Corona is next - Try drinking that piss when it warms up a little - yuck

No need to be so abusive, mate. I am not obliged to take in every word of your lengthy contributions in order to contribute to this thread. No, I have not read the entire statement from Cervecaria Nacional either. I have read both your posts extremely carefully now, and see no link to it.

Your posts doesn't seem to shed much light on why there seems to be no Bohemia anywhere, and hardly any Presidente in colmados OR supermarkets (the latter who buy direct from the company, as far as I know).
Well sorry if I offended you, mate.

IMO the reason for the beer increase and shortage is simply corporate greed. With fewer customers (tourists) during the pandemic how on earth do you run short of bottles or ingredients? The answer is you don't. Logically it can't happen.

What can and does happen is corporate greedy pigs at all levels of manufacturing and distribution get together and invent a shortage. Not only beer but pretty much everything from computer chips to chickens. Then the greedy little pigs also throw in "its because of covid". I for one am sick of the greed and irresponsibility from these butt heads.

They never mentioned they were short of bottles or ingredients. It's the cost of both to them that's raising.

Doesn't anyone read the daily news?

So the cost is rising. I get that, but to me, that doesn't explain the shortage of Presidente and Bohemia all over the place. It would explain a rise in the price to end-users.

I remember the time many years ago in Santiago in the 80's when it was extremely difficult to find Presidente in colmados, and when you could find it, it wouldn't be cold.
Turned out they were being bribed not to carry it.

I went to a couple colmados today to buy beer and they had none - no Presidente, Bohemia, Modelo, no nada. They said they are not receiving deliveries of beer,

I wonder if this is the plan to end the "teteos" in the barrios?

I spoke with another friend in the Callejon. She said the colmados near her don't have any cerveza either. Looks like there's a scarcity of beer developing - at least here in Cabarete.

Skunk pee?
Well that certainly explains a lot now doesn't it? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
(couldn't pass up the opportunity)
I'll stick to drinking Presidente Light.
Bohemia leaves me feeling like I'm going to give birth the
following morning.

The pickings are getting pretty slim in the two colmados closest to me. I went looking yesterday and all they had was Cerveza 1. No Bohemia and no Presidente. That was the first time at least one brand of the latter two wasn't available in at least one size. When I asked why, I was just told that "they" couldn't get delivery, no real reason given and yes the price went up again for the few bottles that were available for sale. Not a crisis yet as the larger grocery stores all seem to have stock of some beer, some unappealing local brands and lots of imports but very few of the preferred cheaper local brands we are used to purchasing.
