Beers from Portugal

History of beer in Portugal

Beer tradition in Portugal steams from the pre-Roman times, when the Lusitans brewed barley beer, but after the Roman conquest, wine became the most popular drink in Portugal, and beer was not popular for centuries, until the English influence brought it back in the 17th century. In the 19th century, with the industrialization, lager style beer became predominant in the country, and in nowadays two big brands, Sagres and Superbock dominates the market. The craft beer movement did not get strength until recently, with breweries like Dois Corvos, Oitava Colina, Mean Sardine or Cerveja Letra.
