Is there a beer shortage?

We went shopping in Penasco today, no bottles of Tecate/lite, Pacifico and Coors lite, only cans in the 4 places we went.

We're finding not so much a beer shortage but a shortage of beer in bottles. There is still plenty of bottles of Bud crap available.

I was told part of the reason the supply of beer in bottles is poor, is that city officials and property owners are tired of all the broken bottles
left on the beaches and roadsides. It's easier to pick up a can for the aluminum vs dealing with lot's of broken glass.
Per Encanto HOA-------> "IT DOESN’T MATTER THE SIZE OR COLOR OF THE GLASS BOTTLE, IF YOU ARE IN POSSESSION OF A GLASS BOTTLE ON THE BEACH YOU WILL BE TICKETED AND FINED ACCORDING TO THE POLICE NOW PATROLLING PENCA ". We now have regular patrols by the Muni Police in Encanto. Spotted them 3 times in here the past few days.

Interesting. taking a break from writing tickets for incomplete gringo stops to write some beach tickets. Nicer working environment for sure. The throwing trash out the window or breaking glass really isn't part of our culture. I see a lot of Bud lite and Tecate lite cans around though. Who drinks that crap almost exclusively?

The weather is perfect in Penasco now. No A/C needed, really low humidity.
Pacifico with some lime in a nice glass is almost the same as in a bottle.
But, the canned Pacifico was in a Super Bock glass from Portugal, so it was better.
Sadly it made me wish I was still In Porto Portugal from 2 weeks ago..
Also RPT still won't let us attach any photos. :(
Wish I could drive to Porto

the trash in the water and beach is from the past storm. they are trying to collect money if you find bottles more than likely from US coming over.
I seen no bottle police when we were down.

I seen no trash on the way down and on way back. A dead cow on side of the road thats it.
