It's good to see posts from homebrewers friends I personally met in Curitiba.
Thanks João Paulo for the link to http://www.acervapr.com.br/.
By the way, the contact for this website is Alessandro Oliveira. Is it the same Alessandro who organized the seminar about the Belgian tripple on december 19th ?
My friend Samuel just sent me a bunch of pictures from the event.
I'll post a few of them tomorrow.

Yes, its the same guy. We just had a Belgian Dubbel Seminar last week, and it was Alessandro who taught us some of the secrets of a good Dubbel.


My best regards,


JP

Strangely enough, I've been looking for Brazilian beers in Texas to try. I found Xingu but wanted to try something else. What's a good Brazilian beer to keep my eye out for?

Muito Obrigado PhilBrasil!

Skol and Brahma are the usual suspects in Brazil although the international version of Brahma which is now pretty sparse in the US is apparently different than the Brahma in Brazil.
I tried a few brazilian beers made by Tropical and a pale ale by Eisenbahn, and both breweries make a pretty good beer. I have only been here a few weeks and am looking forward to trying the other great beers Brazil has to offer! Im sure the Brazilian guys on here know a lot more about the good craft beers down here than I do.

If you can find Original, that is my favorite. Only comes in 22 oz. bottles. I always bring a few back with me each year. Petra is a great black pilsner type beer.

Serra Malte is my other favorite, but it too only comes in 22 oz bottles.

None of these are imported into the US as far as I know.

Does anyone know how to ship beer from the states to Brazil and what to declare for customs?

Are you serious?

I will tell you my trick:

Write on the box: "Educational Material - Not For Resale"

That will get it past customs fast and they probably will not even open it. During my decade in Brazil I accidentally found that out. I used it for everything after I found it out.

Instead of 1 month in customs it will be out in less than a week.

I should also state, if you declare whats in the box it will never get out. They may levy taxes on it around 86% of the determined value.

Good luck!
