It's popularity up to now has mainly been hype by it's supposed creator, Alofoke.

You definitely don't see it flying off the shelves anywhere.

I was in Janet's today and they had a huge pile of La Tuya on the floor on sale. I always thought the bottles looked a little small. They are. They're only 330ml (11oz). What's worse is they're only 3.5% alcohol by volume, No wonder CB thought they tasted like water. I'll pass on La Tuya.

Yesterday Santiago Matías was interviewed in Revista 110. Overall a nice interview. Regarding República La Tuya beer, he said it's already in 10 countries and will enter 10 more in this 2024. It already has 3% of the Dominican market, which is remarkable considering how recent this beer first came out.

It's going in the same path as the Soberana did in the 90s. Too much "bulto" and at the end, they'll survive with Alofoke giveaways and concerts.

After trying it I would give it a solid 1.5 out of 5. If it's ice cold and you drink it really fast it's kinda tolerable. The minute it starts to warm a bit save yourself some grief and bin it.
Canita would still get a zero out of 5.

If the only two beers available in DR were La Tuya and Bud Light, I might drink La Tuya.
I would put the on pink shirt my wife bought me to go see Barbie, find a skimpy speedo, look up the person that Anhuaser hired that cost them market share then crack an ice cold bud and enjoy it like it was the last beer on earth.

I thought why would anyone go to see Barbie and drink bud when there is Presidente, República La Tuya, etc?

Then it hit me, you mean Barbie Barbie. Not the Dominican Barbie:


Btw, República La Tuya is now available on Arajet. lol
