As a way of celebrating an ancient beverage and so rooted in its culture, Portugal joined the other Portuguese-speaking countries to provide to visitors of the museum and brewery, the best that the companies in this activity of these countries have to offer. Here, one may taste numerous beers, among which are, Sagres and Superbock from Portugal, Cuca from Angola, Brahma from Brasil or Laurentina from Mozambique.
