The Southern California brewery with a Brazilian soul, Novo Brazil Brewing Co., held the grand opening of its Imperial Beach location last week. The restaurant and nano brewery sits on the south end of San Diego Bay with views of the Coronado Bridge and downtown skyline in the distance.
The IB location is the fourth in founder Tiago Carneiro’s portfolio, joining the Lane Avenue headquarters/brewery in Chula Vista, Otay Ranch, and National City.
“I am thrilled to extend our footprint of award-winning beers, easy kombuchas, hard seltzers, tasty food, and vibrancy and flare to the great City of Imperial Beach,” Carneiro said. “Our view of San Diego Bay with the bridge and skyline in the distance is unique to the South Bay, and I hope residents and visitors alike will come by to enjoy our family-friendly environment. It is certainly the place to meet, hang out, and watch a game.”
The new location features the same menu as its Otay Ranch mall location and 64 taps, serving all NOVO beers and its other lines of beverages: NOVA easy kombuchas (hard and non-alcoholic), California Spritz beer cocktails, and hard seltzers.
The main dining room is 7,500 square feet with a capacity of 283. The outside patio is 3,000 square feet. There are two 23-foot LED television screens for game watching.
