Tune in at 7:00PM ET tonight as Drinking Socially Podcast host Harrison Hickok (@harrybeerbeard) chats with Maíra Kimura, co-owner of Japas Cervejaria, a Brazilian-Japanese and all female-owned brewery in São Paulo, Brazil. 

An all-star team of Brazilian women of Japanese descent, Japas Cervejaria began when Maíra Kimura, Fernanda Ueno, and Yumi Shimada decided to open a gypsy brewery. The name Japas Cervejaria actually comes from a Brazilian slang term for a person from Japan. With that in mind, this triple-threat brewery breaks through so many boundaries and barriers in the industry. Since launching in 2016, the three women have brewed creative works from an American pale ale with Japanese Sorachi Ace hops and wasabi to imperial porters made with rice and witbiers, including ginger and orange zest. An amalgamation of heritage and culture, Japas Cervejaria breaks the mold at the forefront of innovation in craft beer.

Don't miss out as Harrison and Maíra talk about this incredibly unique brewery and how three women are changing the game in craft beer.
