Hi Sian,

To some degree price levels depend upon which area you are in. Prices appear higher in the Candolim/Calangute/Baga stretch as it is popular with short-term package tourists who are less price aware than the places popular with longer-term visitors (Arambol/Chapora and probably the Palolem area, although I am less familiar with the south)

Most of the shacks have yet to open this season, but last year in Arambol a typical meal (say, chicken tikka or a biryani) was less than rp 100 and a large Kingfisher 40-50, a small Kings 25, juices 30-50. At the in-town restaurants in Chapora/Vagator this season, meals generally less than rp100 for fried fish/prawns etc with chips and salad, pizza rp100 and up, a large Kingfisher generally 50. It is even possible to get by on a 'dire' budget, if necessary, by eating at places popular with locals (rice plates, fish curries, badjes etc) and buying fruit at the market. I have no problem getting by on less than rp500/day for food and drink, but I don't smoke and don't hang out in bars.

I'm going to Goa for the first time in February, so I'm going to keep a close eye on this thread. Are Chesterfield cigarettes easy to come by in Goa? India? What other beer brands are common and cheap..ish in Goa?

In Goa you'll find

Fosters : Aussie beer, good chilled, that's about it 60-110Rp rupees 650 Ml

Bello : Local Goa Brew, a bit sweet for my tastes but cheap enough at about 40-80Rp 650ml

Kingfisher : India's Favourite, again a bit sweet for my taste but many love it 60-110Rp 650ml

Arlems : German recipe brewed in Goa, nice and malty, good chilled price 55-100Rp 650ml

San Miguel : Spanish recipe brewed in Mumbai, nice beer seerved ultra chilled 60-110Rp 500ml

Kings : Local Brew and my personal favoutite, 14-30 for 350ml

They have Fosters mate! 3 1/2 years ago it was like 50-60 a liter. My fave though is Haywards 5000, great taste and strong!
but theres many kinds. I was staying in a house for a while with a frig, so I would buy from a distributor in Chaudi. Paid about 25 rups. a liter for a case.

Hehe, Fosters. Probably the most famous Aussie beer, except in Australia, doesn't even rate amongst the top 5 beers in Australia, top 10 even, dare I say. I'm pretty sure I'd drink all those beers plus alot more! I read on a different thread about how a pint can of Guiness was like 800 rupees. That I'd stick away from!

Are they only 650 ml Cyberhippie? I thought they had liters. Maybe my memory is failing me. Or I'm confusing it with the liter beers in Guatemala. Anyways, they have more varieties than what you posted. Don't remember them though. I only drank Hayywards, Kings, Fosters, Kingfisher(though don't really like it much) or Feni.

I actually never stayed in Palolem. I was in Patnem. I would usually only go to palolem for business(change money, internet,buy certain herbs,etc.) and once in awhile to people watch in a restaurant while nursing a beer. Sometimes though would hang out at the Alpha Bar with some friends and smoke.You probable know some people that I know though that live there.
