The business belongs to the Bianchi sisters, who after having succeeded in Angola with the opening of seven Fininho breweries decided to move the business abroad. Portugal was the country chosen.
In Angola, the seven establishments are run by Inês Bianchi. In Portugal, Fininho will be in charge of Teresa Bianchi.
The sisters' initial plan was to open the brewery in March. However, that month proved complicated for Portugal due to the arrival of the outbreak of covid-19.
With the establishments being forced to close their doors to control the pandemic, the plans had to be changed. In 'stand-by' about three months ago, the sisters now saw an opportunity to go ahead with the inauguration: on Monday, the downtown area of Porto became richer with the opening of the establishment.
"The opening of Fininho was scheduled for mid-March, but the phenomenon of covid-19 made only now Teresa Bianchi felt that everything was in place for the inauguration of the space, which joins the seven Fininhos existing in Angola," explained the company in a statement quoted by the newspaper Negócios.
The owner believes that the brewery will "bring added value to the Porto's movement, through an uncompromising environment, good food on the table and beer in hand", even if the downtown area is already "full of interesting concepts".
Fininho is composed of 90 seats and here you won't find only the traditional Cuca beer. Whoever enters there is welcomed with a painting alluding to the masks of the Angolan tribes: "The welcome to Fininho is given by a painting alluding to the masks of the Angolan tribes, in the middle of the room the Queen Ginga - an important figure of Angola - continues with the honors of the house and, in the background, a third panel closes the room with a mural of masks representing the physiognomy of various races and ethnicities of the world, the latter authored by Lucienne Cruz.
