I visited Curitiba, Brazil (a city of 5 million) last week and my girlfriend and my new friends took me to a Cervejaria … Hop n’ Roll!
Who knew Brazil was starting to brew beers other than Lagers?? Actually, Brazil is the fourth largest producer of beer (recently surpassing Germany in production). Apparently there are microbreweries in all of the large cities … some notable ones are Cervejaria Colorado and Choperia Baden Baden.
This was a very cool place — great layout and decor … check the photos here. They had an outdoor beer garden and a nice indoor pub. They had parking in the rear … no problem.
Great artwork. Below pictures show the chalk board with the available beers. You could get local craft beer, American microbrews, and several Belgian options to include Trappists. Really a nice selection of beer!
Not only could you drink there, you could also brew! They had a brew your own set up … it takes about 4 hours — if we had more time I was going to brew a batch for my friend to drink later. Here’s a few photos of the setup …
I can’t say enough about how nice the folks were — great location. The food was good too. They had an interesting way of tracking your consumption (thank goodness for my Portuguese dictionary … haha). Here I am paying the tab … inexpensive too … $58 for all of us to have a bite and drink a few beers. Very nice. If you are in the area, stop in for a brew!
