Papua New Guinea

There are brands of local beer. The local brew, SP short for South Pacific Lager, is owned by Heineken. Excessive alcohol consumption, primarily of beer, is a major social problem. Beers and wines are often served fairly warm due to a lack of refrigeration in certain areas. Also, while the water quality varies from place to place and in some cases from day to day, it is generally best to stick to bottled water, even in the upper-market hotels.
