I know, I know - Portugal is about wine. Well, I prefer beer 🍺. Anyway - I just found this great article about beer in Portugal. Enjoy.

Thats a rather poorly researched article as it fails to mention that in Portugal, as in most civilised European countries you can buy different beers from all over the world if you shop around.  Just like you can in the UK.  Larger supermarkets have a whole aisle of it - it's unlikely you will go thirsty.

Lisbon has a great selection of really good micro breweries

There was a great bar just for these down in Praça das Flores opposite the mini-preço, bottles and draft and guest beers chalked up on the board

Got some really good IPA down there from various breweries

Miss my Greene King from home tho, and Jever from my DE time

The whole scene was really in when we finally moved out of Lisbon a couple of years ago

But 95% of bars its Sagres or Superbock - I am of the latter, Sagres gives me a headache after one or two.

I'm wondering if we should hold an online debate 'Sagres v Superbock as part of our social events. Any volunteers for each corner ????

@jordan_zimmerman you're on the list Jordan. If you can tell us which side of the ring you will be in, we can find a worthy opponent.

@jordan_zimmerman OK, we'll wait for you Jordan. Please make this your priority when you land. Far more important than worrying about visas, where to live etc. 🤣

@carlm I'm in for sure! We're in Lisbon now and trying to get acclimated. I've had Super Bock already. I need to try a Sagres. Super Bock isn't that bad (!!). At least it has some flavor compared to US premium beers like Budweiser.
