Japas Rio de Janeiro Maru
Named after the ship that brought two of the co-founders' families from Japan to Brazil, hazy double IPA brings a little bit of Japan to the can. It's made with Lotus hops, which is derived from a Japanese variety, and spiked with Kinkan, Japanese kumquat. It's hazy and tropical and the perfect cold beer on a hot day!

About the producer
Japas was founded by three women who met through beer: Maíra Kimura, Yumi Shimada and Fernanda Ueno. Their brand was born unpretentiously in the midst of bar conversations, meetings and beer festivals. This union occurred precisely because, within this universe, they identified their similarities: they were some of the few women and, coincidentally, also some of the few Japanese descendants in the industry. They then decided to come together to, in addition to research their origins, show that women can and should also participate in environments that are generally considered to be masculine, proving more and more that beer has no gender.
Each of their creations is the result of this dive into their ancestry and in this mixture so rich in aromas, flavors and culture, with recipes that celebrate the union between Brazil and Japan in a contemporary way, without clichés or pre-established ideas.
