Iceland: Linstock is the way to go

One of the stronger beers on the list comes from Iceland, with a 5.6 percent ABV. Linstock brings everything you would expect from the island nation. You may want to opt for this last, as it may become your preferred favorite and you won’t get through the rest of the beers!

Iran: Go with Pomegranate Juice

Alcohol is frowned upon in Iran, so you’ll want to opt for the most popular non-alcoholic beverage. It’s all about the pomegranate juice for something sweet and delicious. It’s also good for a detox with all that snacky food you’ll eat throughout the World Cup 2018.

Japan: Opt for Asahi

In Japan, Asahi is the nation’s popular drink. While it can be a little dry, there’s a light aftertaste and it’s popular for those beer gardens during halftime.

Mexico: Choose Corona Extra

If you want something that you know you already enjoy, the Mexican beer Corona Extra is going to be the one to go with. Don’t forget your slices of lime to slide into the drink.

Morocco: Choose Casablanca

This is one of the stronger beers on the list, coming in a 5 percent ABC. It’s one of those that will be delicious when you want a taste of the Med without looking for wines and spirits. You’ll want it with a traditional Moroccan spread for dinner.

Nigeria: Guinness Foreign Extra Stout

Who would have thought you’d see Guinness when Ireland isn’t even in the World Cup 2018? Well, the Foreign Extra Stout is brewed in Nigeria, making it one of the best options. You’ll get the hints of coffee with extra hops in this super brew. At 7.5 percent ABV, it’s also the second strongest on the list.

Panama: Desparados is the only way

You’ve likely had Desparados in the past. It’s one of the most wildly found Panama beer, popular because of its tequila flavor in a beer. You’ll only need one—it has a 5.9 percent ABV.

Peru: Opt for Cusquena

Peru’s beer is made with water from the Andes, bringing the taste of the nation literally to your doorstep. It’s crisp but strong at 5 percent ABV.

Poland: Tyskie is one to drink

When supporting the Polish, opt for Tyskie, which is the nation’s leading brand. You’ll definitely get the taste of the hops in the beer, which can take away from some of the other tastes. It all depends on what you prefer from your beer. At 5.5 percent ABV, it’s not to be frowned upon.

Portugal: Try the Super Bock

If you want something with a bit of a punch with a good taste, Super Bock is where to turn. It brings multiple tastes in one, with a foamy texture. It’s perfect when you come to support Portugal in a game.
