Craft beer in San Diego? Absolutely! This part of the world is home of the beginnings of the craft beer industry. Nowadays, we can find more than 150 independent craft beers in San Diego alone.
Gente Bonita Magazine has a favorite one. NOVO BRAZIL BREWING Co. Not only do we work in the same building here at 901 Lane in Chula Vista, CA, but we have got to known them personally and professionally.
Novo means NEW in Portuguese. I personally think it owns up to the name. The flavors are new to our palate. The aromas and richness of each beer is a totally new experience. Novo Brazil Brewing is a Brazilian based craft beer company with a large variety of brews that range from stouts to lagers.
The Mango IPA is a must try when you visit NOVO BRAZIL BREWING Co. Pair it with Yucca fries (yucca is a Brazilian root that is processed, cut up, and fried like potatoes) and you have a perfect combination.
The brewery in 901 Lane offers a cozy atmosphere inside and great seating in the parking lot (during these pandemic times). Food trucks are permanently parked there offering delicious tacos and finger foods.
Otay Ranch Mall has a huge NOVO BRAZIL BREWING Co., and it is one of the best places to watch sports on its wall to wall hi definition tv screens. It has an ample menu of yummy appetizers and entrees you can enjoy with your favorite drink.
Not a beer person? No problem. NOVO offers us Kombucha (fermented yeast and tea drink) in a variety of flavors, good wines by the glass and Brazilian cocktails and mocktails for non-alcoholic drinkers (family friendly place).
NOVO brings you closer to a colorful and flavorful Brazilian experience every time you visit. Make sure you ask for the happy hour specials (or specials of the day) before ordering.
As you know, during these hard times of having bars closed to dine-in customers, NOVO Brazil offers you beer to go in cans or growlers. Nothing will stop you from trying these amazing flavors.
You can also find NOVO BRAZIL BREWING CO in supermarket chains like Vons and Sprouts.
Do not take our word for it. You need to experience NOVO BRAZIL BREWING CO. with all your senses.
So, if they ask you over at NOVO BRAZIL BREWING CO. “Gostaría de una cerveja?” (Would you like a beer?) You answer firmly and willingly “Sim, por favor” (Yes, please).
