Try the highly rated Vailima beer!
Beer in Samoa
Samoa brews the amazing Vailima beer. Even Germans say it's good beer, probably because the brewery was founded by a German. It's cheap and you can buy it everywhere. Non-alchoholic beverages and bottled water are available in all roadside stores. Coke, Fanta and Sprite are available in 750 ml glass bottles for about 4 T. You will need a bottle opener for these if you want to take them with you to drink later, otherwise stores will have a bottle opener available. Bottled water is available in a range of sizes.
Liquor is plentiful in the bars. There's not that much in most stores and it tends to be expensive. Le Well near the market (ask any taxi driver) has a good range at the best prices. It's a good idea to bring your own bottle in if you plan on drinking a lot of hooch. The cheapest liquor is generally vodka in large (1.75 L) plastic bottles. This may be bought from supermarkets and bottleshops and is also available in smaller 750 ml bottles for about 25 T. Imported liquor (such as New Zealand wine) is generally very expensive.
Bars in Samoa
Unfortunately the government shut down most of the popular and legendary bars and night spots in Apia in 2006, citing underage drinking, drugs, noise, and crime. They were reopened several weeks later. There are lots of smaller bars and night spots to check out. Also every hotel has a bar as do most of the restaurants.
