      • Hi Kevin! Just came upon your site, love it! Question related to the Sagres Self Serve Beer machine in Lisbon. We were there in 2016 and unfortunately didn’t see any of these machines. Do you by chance remember what street in Lisbon you saw it? We’re returning to Lisbon this summer & would at least like to find one just for fun. If not, no worries! Thanks!

      • As I remember it, it was on the west side of the street as I was walking south on Av. Almirante Reis from the Portugalia Cervejaria. Hope you have a great trip and come back here to tell about things you find.
