  Sporting my best Douala drunk...
by Cabana_Boy

Favorite thing: Wherever you go, whatever you do, sampling the local beer is definite must.

What do the locals drink, what beer is most popular, which beer is hardest to find, does it come in a half pint glass just like grandma used to drink…or better still, a full pint glass like I drink??? These are all good questions that need to be answered...

Like most former colonies, the beers from the "motherland" tend to outlast their colonialists...and Cameroon is no different as the beer to drink here hales from France. While in Douala the beer of choice is "33," which is brewed locally by S.A. des Brasseries du Cameroun.

I also sampled Tuborg which is a Danish Beer and brewed by the same S.A. des Brasseries du Cameroun brewery; however, I found the Tuborg to be somewhat less satisfying than the “33”….

And, as usual, Guinness is available if all else fails. Naturally, the black gold is brewed locally by their very own GUINNESS Cameroun S.A. brewery.
