Novo Brazil Brewing Co.
Owner Tiago Carniero never expected to end up brewing beer in Southern California, but after opening a successful brewery in Brazil in 1999, he and his brother set their sights northward to San Diego. First launching Novo Brazil Brewing in Chula Vista in 2015, they followed up with Novo Brazil Restaurant at Otay Ranch Mall and their newest tasting room in the Market on 8th in National City. A quartet of core beers—The Mango Fruit IPA, Momo Haze Hazy IPA, Ipanema DIPA, Wet Hops Hazy DIPA, and Corvo Negro Russian Imperial Stout are available throughout the year, and another five rotate in periodically for three-month stretches. You can also find Novo Brazil beer on tap at their other project, Nova Easy Kombucha, a tasting room for both beer and booch in the heart of hippieville, Ocean Beach.
