There are two separate Bowen & Bowen (B&B) distributor buildings in San Pedro and there has been some back and forth confusion between the two over the years, leaving some people wondering exactly how the pickup and returns work. While you can still drop empties off at the old Belikin Beer distributor across from Island Academy (from 9-11:30 am or 1-3 pm), most transactions are happening out of the Crystal Water & Ice Distributor located south of town. To get there from town, travel south on the main road until you have to make a right. After making the turn, keep going straight past the gas station intersection. On your left-hand side, you will find Crystal Water and Ice. Their hours of operation are: Monday – Friday 8 am-5 pm, and Saturday 8 am-12 pm. Their contact number is 226-4441.

Depending on where you are staying you can sometimes get lucky and catch a beer or water tractor on their run and get home delivery. Some hotels offer basic provisioning and will pre-order a case and have it waiting for you when you arrive.
Special Seasonal Beers:
Winter Sorrel Stout: A nicely balanced and aged stout blended with high-quality German hops and specialty malts. This beer embodies Caribbean flavor, color, and heritage.
Spring Chocolate Stout: Chocolate was a Maya food of the gods, had this delicious Stout been around it surely would have been offered as well. With added hints of vanilla and rum, this unique lightly carbonated beer is a decadent chocolate experience.
If you forget to pack your coozies, you can purchase Belikin ones at any of the gift shops on Front Street in town.

10 thoughts on “Cost of Belikin Beer and Other Items From the Distributor”
There are distributors on the mainland. Here is the Brewery +501 227-7031 and email contact options – email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to to find out the closest one to Placencia. I do not drink beer and did not happen to ask where it was anytime I have been there. You will easily be able to buy beer at most local stores though.
Hi! Are there any belikin distributors on the mainland? We are driving to placencia from BZE and would like to stock up. Can beer be bought directly from the brewery? Learning lots from your blog. Thank you!
I will add it to my task list Dale, and get price update added to this post. No distributor near you, both locations are still south of town. If you can swing it, then yes suck up the cost of delivery and make your vacation at easy. Village Market right across the bright might help at what price I am not sure. Why not start a beer jar and do small things to fill it like bringing lunch to work once or twice a week and putting what you would spend in your jar.
looking for current update on bulk beer purchase. We will be back down in July and will probably want about 10 cases of beer. We will be using a local grocery delivery for food being delivered to our house we rented, but the two food delivery services that are online, advertise a much higher markup on a case of beer. I understand this is for their service and convenience of delivery (especially since cases of beer are heavy and bulky). We are staying about 2 miles north of the bridge, is there a local distributor for Belikin near that location or would it be best just to suck it up and eat the cost of the delivery as the convenience of not having to physically move 10 cases of beer ourselves, especially since we only have 2 golf carts for transportation. Are there any local grocery stores/liquor stores that might help with that large of an order? Thanks for the info.
It is cheaper if you use a lot Erin as the distributor is by the case. Be sure and hit up Travellers Liquors on Middle Street for local rum choices. Many also use flight code (for a cause) horizon and code vacation starter in Premier duty-free at Philip Goldson International Airport will save you 15% on alcohol. See alcohol savings a comparison chart.
Is this considerably less than you would pay in a grocery store? Would like to have some rum and coke’s in our room, was going to hit up a grocery store but sounds like this may be cheaper? Thanks!
Pricing is in Belize currency Heidi. Just cut in half for USD.
Case $49.95 USD?
You would have to wait till it is in stores again Tommy then find a mule who was willing to ship you a couple of bottles and work out payment system like paypal or what ever works.
I want some belikin beer chocolate stout shipped to me…how??
