New England Double IPA with Passion Fruit and Curry, collab with the Japas Cervejaria.
With the characteristic acidity of the style, being also light and refreshing, Sawā is the translation of “Sour” in japanese. The perfect base for a beer that, on this version, has Yuzu on its recipe, a japanese citric fruit that has a remarking acidity and that is extremely aromatic, reminding of a mix of sicilian lemon, tangerine and grapefruit. This sour ale also has the Citra and Cascade hops added on dry hopping, empowering even more the citric character of this rare fruit.
It’s impossible to think in Japan without reminding of so many “cute” characters from mangas and animes. And there, all this cuteness has a name: Kawaii. Besides that, it’s a culture that became a lifestyle with so many adepts around the world and that now became inspiration to our beer. It also means something innocent, pure, but not exclusively sweet, that’s why we created a Smoothie NE IPA, with a light bitterness, tasty, velvety and with a touch of blackberry and raspberry.
Marilyn is a Berliner Weisse with the addition of oat, vanilla and pitanga. While the oat gives the beer an extremely velvety body, the pitanga brings an elegant acidity which is balanced by a touch of vanilla.
Japas and Dádiva have joined to pay a beer homage to all the workers of the coffee industry in Brazil. The first japanese immigrants that settled themselves in São Paulo have contributed to the enormous coffee expansion in the country. The result of this homage is Kōhī (coffee in japanese), a New England Double IPA, powerful and aromatic, that has the addition of Dekopon and Coffee.
With the characteristic acidity of the style, being also light and refreshing, Sawā is the translation of “Sour” in japanese. The perfect base for a beer that has Japanese Medlar on its recipe, fruit that has a remarking acidity, light sweetness and unmistakable flavor, which is cultivated in Japan for more than a thousand years, being this country the biggest producer of the fruit. We also added peach on the fermentation, increasing the complexity of aromas and flavors of the beer.
110 years ago, on June 18, the Kasato Maru disembarked on the Santos’ port, bringing the first 781 japanese immigrants to our country. Our release is a tribute to all the immigrants and descendants that inherited and spreaded this culture that totally influenced our cultural formation. Our beer will be a New England IPA, refreshing, hopped and with 6.5% ABV, with Dekopon addition on its recipe. A fruit of japanese origin that arrived as an “immigrant” in our country.
