Novo Brazil Brewing Co., the international brewery based in Southern California and guided by its Brazilian soul, announced the spot for its newest location: Imperial Beach in San Diego County. While the location is still a work-in-progress, it will feature the same delicious food and beers found at Novo Brazil’s Otay brewpub and will be complete with a huge outdoor patio facing the beautiful bay.
Why Imperial Beach? Why now?
“It’s a good business opportunity and a great location with a patio and a view of the bay in the only South Bay community we aren’t already present in,” says Novo Brazil Director of Operations Hugo Thomaz. “Additionally, there is a lack of restaurants and breweries in the area.”
The floor plan is still being finalized, but if there is sufficient space, management will explore the option of having a brewhouse and cellar on-site. Last year, Novo Brazil produced 10,700 barrels of beer, and its goal for 2022 is up its barrelage to up that figure by 30 percent.
The addition of Novo Brazil’s project will make for a beer landscape that has been long overdue in this city.
“We realized that breweries don’t want to be in the South Bay, but we have always believed in the area,” says Thomaz. “The area has expanded a lot in the past years and there are definitely a lot of opportunities here.”
