1. Mula IPA – Cervejaria Nacional

Named after a Brazilian folk tale about a mule with no head, this over-hopped IPA has a kick at 7.5%. The pungent citrus odor with a bitter aftertaste combines well with bolinhos de bacalhau (cod fritters).

2. La Sorciere Belgian IPA – Cervejaria Urbana

From craft brewery (or laboratory of beers as they call themselves) Urbana, this Belgian style ale has sharp maple and raisin aromas. A well-balanced brew, perhaps a little weak for an IPA but a fine effort from these upcoming beer scientists.

3. Júpiter American Pale Ale – Cervejaria Júpiter

The light citrus flavor – with a touch of passion fruit at the tailend – means this is a perfect beer for a hot and dry day in São Paulo. A hand and lighting rod also creates an ace beer label.

As American Pale Ales (APAs) diferem das suas irmãs inglesas em dois pontos principais: teor alcoólico e perfil de lúpulo. As americanas são mais alcoólicas e lupuladas. As Pale Ales tradicionais tem lúpulo inglês com aroma discreto e sabor terroso, herbal. As APAs tem sabores e aromas intensos, cítricos e resinosos, com notas de frutas amarelas. . . A primeira cerveja produzida pela Cervejaria Júpiter foi a American Pale Ale. Uma receita simples e incrivelmente saborosa. . . De coloração dourada intensa, a APA da Júpiter tem aromas que remetem a grapefruit, abacaxi e maracujá, corpo leve e é muito refrescante. Os sabores de lúpulo marcadamente cítricos são complementados por boas notas de malte. Combina com pratos condimentados, frutos do mar e, claro, hambúrgueres suculentos. . . 👀 Esse é um estilo de história interessante… Antigamente todas as cervejas eram escuras e provavelmente com sabor defumado. Isso porque o malte era seco diretamente no fogo… Até que no início do século XVIII, na Inglaterra, a técnica de secar o malte com calor indireto foi desenvolvida, o que permitiu a produção de malte claro. A partir daí os estilos de cervejas claras começaram proliferar no mundo. . . 😋🐟 Ficou perfeita a harmonização que fizemos com uma Empadinha de Bacalhau… Tenho certeza que se dará muito bem com comida japonesa 🍣, camarão frito 🍤, caranguejo, atum, salmão, lagosta… E deve ficar fantástica acompanhando um Arroz de Lula 🍚🐙💭… . . . . ✔️ Estilo: American Pale Ale . ✔️ Teor Alcóolico: 5,4 % . . . #ObservatorioDaCerveja #Beer #Cerveja #Cervejeiros #Breja #MestreCervejeiro #Lúpulo #Malte #CraftBeer #CervejariaJúpiter #Júpiter  #JúpiterAmericanPaleAle #AmericanPaleAle #AmericanAle #Ale . . @cervejariajupiter

4. Cosmonauta – Cervejaria Burgman

You’ll have to make the 100km trip from the capital of São Paulo to Sorocaba to sample this beer fresh from the tap (but at least it’s not as far as the moon). A solid brown ale with hints of chestnuts and caramel with a bitter backend marks this beer as perfect for a good session.

5. Weiss Premium – Cervejaria Madalena

A brewery paying homage to the bohemian neighborhood of São Paulo, Vila Madalena, with a Weiss reminds me of a winter day in the biergartens of Brazil’s German-influenced Serra Gaúcha.

6. 108 Imperial Stout – Cervejaria Invicta

As strong as wine at 10.8% and as thick as treacle, this beer is bursting with flavor and aromas – notably caramel and dark chocolate. Hits you like an anvil.

7. Indica IPA – Cervejaria Colorado

Not sure if Colorado is a craft beer anymore as mega-brewing conglomerate, Ambev, bought it this year, but I have enormous nostalgia, as this was the first Brazilian beer I tried. Made with rapadura (a very sweet Brazilian candy), Indica does not have a vibrant hoppy quality you’d expect from an IPA but a smoked out nutty flavor, reminiscent of an English brown ale. Goes down well on a warm tropical day.

8. Pilsen Premium – Cervejaria Karavelle

As a smooth as the owner of Karavelle, Brazilian singer/songwriter Seu Jorge, this beer combines with anything cooked at a churrasco (the word for BBQ in Portuguese).

Good! #instabeer #beer #cerveja #pilsen #karavelle #awesome #burger

9. IPA – Dama Bier

A well-made IPA with nose of orange rinds and caramel. Try saying, Piracicamirim, Piracicaba, the name of the neighborhood and region this beer is brewed at after a few of these.

10. Chopp 250 – Les 3 Brasseurs

One of those fruity beers that quenches the thirst after a long day at the office. It’s also worth sampling some of the food at this French inspired micro brewery.
