Not necessarily SP homebrew (yawa) brewing and consumption is at its peak.

Indeed, Unitech is also surrounded by settlements, where regrettably many of our permanent staff live, the working poor. In Lae, we saw the non-temporary prohibition increases the investments in illegal distilleries, that make a potentially lethal brew.
