Japas brewing is the story of three Brazilian-born, Japanese descended women, who met through their passion for beer. They decided to come together with the intention of deep diving into their origins, and eradicating gender and racial barriers in the beer industry. As a result, each of their creations is infused with traditional Japanese and Brazilian flavors, marrying the two cultures in modern ways. Japas is a term widely used in Brazil to describe people of Asian descent - in naming their beers Japas, they are reclaiming and reappropriating the adjective.
