Gypsy brewers Maíra Kimura, Yumi Shimada and Fernanda Ueno are three Brazilian ‘Sansei’ (Third generation Japanese who were born in a new country of residence). Their first beer, ‘Wasabiru’ – an APA with Wasabi – was launched in 2014. Since then the three talented brewers presented numerous beers, all of which are brewed with Japanese inspiration and ingredients. Paving the way for women in the beer industry, their unique, exotic and delicious beers are on a constant rise, with ‘Japas’ already a familiar name in the thriving craft beer scene in Brazil.
