Luanda is heavily impacted by Portuguese culture; for example, Portuguese beer is commonly consumed, while Heineken and Carlsberg also make an appearance. Portugal’s most popular beers include Super Bock, Sagres, and Cristal (most consumed). Additionally, a diverse selection of regional beers is available, including Nocal, Cuca (the most popular – particularly the superb draught form, or “fino” in Portuguese), and Eka. Various nations want attractive markets as well, so don’t be surprised if you see other beer brands available in local eateries. Consider Portugalia (Portuguese Beer House) near the Ilha’s entrance or one of the two boat clubs located on the Ilha for a pleasant sundowner (Clube Nautico and Clube Naval).
Not to be overlooked are the outstanding Portuguese wines, which are also readily accessible.
