THE INVENTORS OF MODERN BEER
Brasil Brau, Degusta and the Beer Sommelier world Championship
Brasil Brau has become well established as an international trade fair for the brewing industry. First launched in 1989, this biennial conference has been held in São Paulo over the last ten years. This year, the conference opened its doors from July 15th to 17th to welcome attendees from around the world. Degusta Beer & Food, which is now placing more emphasis on craft beer, took place concurrently. In addition to these two events, sommeliers from nine countries were on hand to display their knowledge and skills at the fourth Beer Sommelier World Championship. BRAUWELT International traveled to Brazil to report on the championship competition and the two trade fairs.
