Six thousand years ago several civilizations around Mesopotamia started to produce beer. Portugal is an heir of that tradition. The first Museum of beer in Portugal was founded in Lisbon to celebrate this tradition alongside with Angola, Brazil, Mozambique, Cape Verde and Saint Tomé and Prince.
Where beer is, there is also exquisite gastronomy and fine snacks. That's why along with the museum there is the Beer House, a place with a unique ambience. In the Beer House the codfish cake and other snacks complement beer in perfection.
TRAVELING IN TIME
A cultural team with a comprehensive cultural experience linked to the Museum of Bread, put its mark on the quality of the Museum of Beer. Flavor and knowledge are framed with some of the best beers of the Portuguese speaking countries: SUPER BOCK, SAGRES, CUCA, BRAHMA, LAURENTINA.
