There are lots of really good craft brewed beers here south of the border. Some national grocery chains like Kroger sell individual bottles of many different brands to make up a six pack.
Yuengling and Bud's Amber Bock are a couple of the big brewer beers that I would recommend. But also try the small craft brews. You'll be surprised how good many of these can be.
If you always drink the smae brand you are going to miss out on a lot of good stuff.

Do a web search for "I DECLARE". It will tell you what you need to know about what you can bring and in what quantity. I have drank a lot of American beer, and it can't hold a candle to Canadian beer. The alcohol content is much less and it tastes like water compared to Canadian. On the other hand beer is beer, and it is always good on a hot day. (that is except Alpine- urine in a bottle)

last year, 24 per person, but if you wanted to stock up, the duty was $2.00 per 24, still half the price we pay in canada, but forget the spirits, $1.00 oz, cheers Herb.

I wouldn't think the US Customs guys are going to sweat you over a couple of cases of your favorite beer, in a MH, on an extended trip. They are, unlike the Canadian Customs agents, looking for bigger fish to fry. Now if you filled you MH from floor to ceiling with a couple hundred cases of beer, then they are going to be asking a few questions and taxing it.

I would have to respectfully disagree with you Mike, US customs is much strickter than the Canadians. Going over to Windsor this summer, the Canadians asked for passports, drivers license and truck license number, asked about firearms and anything to declare, that was it. Coming back, Customs enter the trailer and look throughout, besides the questions.

Yeah, I agree with you that they may ask a few questions and check out the MH ect, but I would doubt they would have started counting your beer supply. Post 9-11 they are looking more for terrorists who attempt to come into the US via Canada, than they are people trying bring too much beer into the US.

My experience with the Canadian Customs was a little different. I started to write the story but it got a little long and really doesn't have anything to do with the Post. Lets just say I have spent 31 years in Law Enforcement and have worked closely with US Customs on different cases. They have always been courteous and professional and the ones I know could care less about a guy bringing in extra beer to drink on a MH trip.

Excellent information from all of you, I now fell more at ease going south for several month for the first time.

Thanks again..
