Japas Cervejaria is a Brazilian brewery led by three Nipo-Brazilian (Japanese-Brazilian) women seeking to carve out a space in the beer industry for women and people of Japanese descent. The beer industry is a space that is unintentionally dominated by particular demographics and with that, sometimes it’s necessary to intentionally create your own space. Their beers lean heavily into incorporating Japanese flavors and influence without seeming gimmicky or sacrificing quality.

The final beer in this month's club, Taras Boulbs by De La Senne, is simply just a beer that I love. De La Senne is fairly new the Belgian beer scene, they began brewing and selling beer in the mid 2000s, but they’ve quickly made a name for themselves. They are located in Brussels and named for the Senne River that passes through their hometown. 

Enjoy a few beers with roots all over the world.

Neko IPA  

Japas Cervejaria

Copper in color with classic, earthy hop notes on the nose. Bitter and earthy on the palate with just a bit of citrus and a light, malty sweetness. Dry, smooth finish.

Sao Paulo, Brazil

American IPA



Japas Cervejaria

White flowers and hops on the nose. The Jasmine almost comes across like really floral hops. Bright and crisp with just a little floral tone on the palate. Really refreshing and super clean.

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Pilsner with Jasmine Flowers


Sawa Yuzu

Japas Cervejaria

Light citrus on the nose followed by moderate acidity on the palate. Really well balanced with a citrus character somewhere between lemon and orange. Yuzu can be pretty intensely acidic but this beer is actually really well balanced. Finishes dry. Really a nice beer.

Sour Ale with Yuzu

Ginger and light citrus on the nose followed by very present, but not overwhelming, ginger on the palate. Lightly spicy with a bit of warming from the ginger and a crisp, clean finish.

Pours slightly opaque straw gold with a persistent, foamy head. Hops and pale malt on the nose. Bitter and clean on the palate. The hops are present but aren’t overwhelming. Really well balanced with a dry, bitter finish.
