Definitely keep your eyes peeled for Brazilian-American collab brews from Tupiniquim and Evil Twin, Tupiniquim and Stillwater, Invicta and Sixpoint, and Walls and Brooklyn Brewery.
The next big thing? Gypsy brewing.
Bottom line: starting a brewery is a pricy endeavor no matter where you call home. In the States, tons of small brewers are breaking into the biz as gypsy brewers, meaning they brew and package their own beer using an established brewery's equipment to avoid throwing down half a million dollars for gear. The same thing is happening Brazil.
"Brewing in Brazil is still very expensive, which has somewhat inhibited growth," Barbaresco explains. "Gypsy brewing is exploding as there is a much lower barrier to entry. Since these brands can focus more on art and marketing, they are creating some pretty cool labels, throwing events, and drawing attention to craft beer in general."
