Default Any worse beer destination than Mexico?

Being dragged to an all inclusive wedding in Cancun, and all I will have to wash down the ****ty food is terrible beer.

I thought beer always tastes better when I don't have to pay for it

Why not go for some tequila or rum based drinks?

I feel ya Xprtskier.

Last summer the family took a trip to the Dominican on the in-laws dime. I'll never complain about that, but when it comes to beer, Presidente (an acceptable light lager in my mind, though far from my favorite style) was the best the resort had to offer and you had to special order it. By the time I got home I was in serious lupulin withdrawal and devoured every double IPA I had in the fridge.

The Caribbean Islands are not much better, but at least the rum drinks are good! Negra Modelo is the only Mexican beer that isn't a corn/rice yellow beer...it's vienna lager. Still not very good, but better than some of the others!

I know. The tex-mex food is better. Did they at least had Chile Relleno?

Chile Relleno and Negra Modelo is a nice combo.

I love food. Especially authentic Mexican food, the kind I will be unable to get at such a place.

I'll be miles away from slow cooked cow, goat, and pigs with delicious spices being served ground beef and dry chicken smothered in "cheese".

I'll be sorely in need of delicious beers to numb my taste buds and mind.
