The cover of The Drinking Man’s Guide to the BVI, by Julian Putley.
About the Drinking Man’s Guide to the BVI
We were introduced to Julian Putley’s The Drinking Man’s Guide to the BVI by our friends and shipmates on our February 2011 Sailing Tripin the British Virgin Islands. The cool part about this book is that it has a special for each bar that you visit, up to $200USD value. Most of the deals are FREE DRINKS! Plus it is fun to keep track of how many bars you can visit.
Why Buy The Drinking Man’s Guide to the BVI?
If you will be in the British Virgin Islands for a vacation, you WILL save a ton of money with this book. While some of the bars in the BVI are world-famous (i.e., Soggy Dollar Bar), many are not as well known. This book will help you locate many bars that you may not have known about without it.
Where to Buy The Drinking Man’s Guide to the BVI?
It has been a while since we bought our copy of The Drinking Man’s Guide to the BVI, and unfortunately we can’t seem to remember where we bought it, although we definitely got it in the British Virgin Islands. Occasionally, a copy will show up on eBay. It should be noted here, that all of the free drinks will be signed or stamped in the book, and thus not reusable. If you buy a used copy, you will definitely want to make sure none of the specials have been stamped.
