Colorado Ithaca Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 3.17.57 PM

ABV: 10.5%

Ithaca is a small Greek island that was the scene of many battles. A beer that was born of a fight could not have another name. Even an Imperial Stout that does not give up its Brazilian way. That is why his formula has a northeastern element: the burnt brown sugar. The result is a porreta beer, as well as the joy of the Northeast, also has a long life.

A partnership between Bodebrown and the US brewer Stone Brewing, IPA Cocoa is a beer awarded as the best style in Brazil in 2013 at the IPA Day event. It masterfully combines characteristics of India Pale Traditional English Ale with Brazilian touches cocoa format “nibs” during boiling and maturation.

It was the first Brazilian IPA beer to use the addition of cocoa.

It is a strong, dark beer style India Pale Ale. 6.5% ABV our IPA has an amber color, is bright and displays a dense cream, floral, citrus and fruity aroma. It is refreshing, showing spicy notes and the characteristic bitterness of style.

 

 

 

 

Eisenbahn 5 Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 3.37.20 PM

ABV: 5.4%

The Eisenbahn 5 was created to celebrate the five year anniversary of the brewery. It is produced with dry hopping technique, and takes a second addition of aromatic hops during maturation. Thus, the hop aroma is much more intense and the malt sweetness is nicely balanced. Presents coppery color and dominate malt flavors, caramel, bread and hops. It is one of the most hoppy beers from Brazil.

Our masterpiece! Made with Cervejaria Prima Satt the Cafuza is a black beer, which brings all the characteristics of an Imperial Stout, but co hopping of an Imperial IPA. With aromas and flavors of chocolate, coffee and caramel malts, balanced by aromas of citrus and tropical flavors and bitterness of American hops varieties.

Seasons Green Cow IPA Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 3.43.26 PM

ABV: 6.2% IBU: 62 SRM: 11

The Green Cow is our reading of an American IPA, the most popular style among craft breweries (microbreweries) in the US. American IPAs are beers that have an intense bitterness, but with a surprisingly high drinkability, despite massive doses of hops, the ingredient that gets the most emphasis in this style.

 

 

 

 

Dum Petroleum Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 3.46.46 PM

A beer black as oil, with added cocoa and oatmeal. Its 12% alcohol is well set with striking aromatic notes of coffee and dark chocolate, from the roasted malts and adding Belgian cacao.

 

 

 

 

 

Wals Session Citra Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 3.47.57 PM

ABV: 3.9% IBU: 30

Session Beer is a style to drink in large quantities without losing quality. This beer has a massive amount of American Citra hops and a nice base malt. Moderate bitterness and explosive aroma are a recipe for extreme freshness.

Perigoas was one of Bodebrown’s first beers, and the first Imperial Double IPA registered in Brazil.

Bamberg Franconian Rhapsody
Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 3.51.26 PM

ABV: 5%

Popular and free, so are the rhapsodies. Whether in literature or music, they let you explore variations of themes and tones, giving birth to a masterpiece almost unlikely, but not impossible. Thus came the Franconian Rhapsody. We chose two characteristic types of Franconia: the Helles, light lager consumed daily in the region, and Rauch, traditional smoked beer from the city of Bamberg.
