Pratinha, Official guest of Colorado Brewery (also a Brazilian based brewery), which will also be one of four Brazilians to be in the festival, Pratinha is expected to present to the American public for the first time four beers with a lot of history to tell:
P3 (Aka: Porter, Porteira e Portão) - Porter
Inspired by the American Peanut Butter Porters, Porter Porteira and Portão is a celebration of the charming Brazilian accent spoken in the small town areas and farms in the heart of Brazil. In this Porter, together with the best cocoa nibs available, the brewery used a huge dose of “paçoquinha”, a peanut-butter sweet considered as a comfort food dessert countrywide in Brazil. This beer is a gold medal awarded beer at the Brazilian Beer Festival, 2018 edition.
Cabruca – Catharina Sour
Unlike the taste we know of chocolate, the cocoa pulp brings notes of green and slightly acidic fruits. The “Cabruca” Cocoa, from the south of Bahia state in Brazil, is the name given to the way the culture is handled in the shade of the native trees of the Atlantic Forest, a method used for more than 200 years, characteristic of being one of the most sustainable in the world. We chose this special ingredient for our debut in this Catharina Sour, the first official Brazilian beer style.
Kamayurá - Maibock
The Kamayurás are indigenous people who inhabit the Brazilian basin of the Xingu, in the South of the Amazon jungle, and their traditions involve the Jatobá,
a native and peculiar tree of which they make use of their wood and the exotics fruits.
For this Maibock, we use this indigenous ingredient for a disruptive and surprising combination. Malted, aromatic with a medium body.
Birudo - Witbier com Yuzu
This beer reveres the millennial Japanese culture with a recipe that creates a link between Sorachi Ace hops and the citrus fruit Yuzu. The unusual and surprising mix brings an unique identity to the Birudo’s body and aroma.
