The beer is cheap and good! Local pubs buvettes are on every corner in every neighborhood. You can get a bottle of local beer "La Béninoise", Heineken, Guinness, Castel and others depending on the bar. They all cost about 250 CFA for a small bottle or 500 CFA for a large bottle. In the nightclubs beer is excessively expensive, like 30000 CFA a bottle! So stick to the local pubs, or avoid buying beer at the nightclub. Local whiskey moonshine is also available, it costs about 2000 CFA for a liter and it is VERY strong stuff. There is also the local vin de palme palm wine, an alcoholic beverage that is made from from sap of the palm tree.
