Terra Costa was an idea that was birthed in 2012 when Mark Costa & his brother-in-law, Mike started experimenting with homebrew. They started making batches of beer around the holidays to share with friends and family. After numerous batches Mark started to get asked what he called his beer. It was through these conversations that he knew it was time to take this new hobby to the next level.
Terra Costa has become a vehicle to share stories, to bring individuals back to a place in time, to be a topic of conversation among friends and family. The flavors and branding of Terra Costa represent tradition of Costa's family both in New Jersey, where Terra Costa is brewed and on a small island off the coast of Portugal called Sao Miguel. On that small Azorian island is a town nestled between two mountains called Faial Da Terra. This small town, population of roughly 350 people is the birthplace of Mark's father and where his family vacations every year. The culture on the island is very laxed and carefree. The people there are content with eachother's company and indulge in conversations over local beer at the cafe in town.
Observing the smiles and conversations in this small cafe has been a huge inspiration for the purpose behind Terra Costa's beer. Costa is currently a competitive homebrewer tweaking his recipes until its time to dive into the professional brewing world. Follow the journey at TerraCostaBrewing.com.
