During our stay for World Cup we hit this place nearly every night, given that it was only a few hundred feet from our doorstep. Huge range of Brazilian micros, and a very impressive list of imports (Westvleteren Blonde was a big surprise!). Decent food, great service-- just expect crowds and expect to pay!!!

Just about the only bar in a Brazil that does’t sell Brahma/Skol/Antarctica as far as I can tell. Extensive beer menu (though strangely omitting anything from Brasserie DuPont + Hoegaarden). Nowhere near the mothership in Brussels though. But there were even bottles of Westvleteren at 150R a pop! About 10 on tap including Chimay and Gouden Carolis when we attended. Prices are similar to Belgian/Bavarian Beer Cafés in Australia (ie. pricey). Serves some beer influenced dishes including mussels cooked in Witbier and fillet mignon in Belgian Dubbel sauce. It is located several blocks away from Ipanema Beach in what looks like a largely residential neighbourhood. Much more sedate than the Belgian counterpart. Lots of beer memorabilia on the walls. Service was adequate without suggesting any beer specific knowledge.

Not too bad a beer selection. Good, but expensive range of local beers, some prices quite steep indeed. Service wasn’t brilliant and a lot of the selection seemed to conveniently go missing when requested. Like to add a whopping charge for service event though I was sat directly at the bar and had to keep interrupting one of staff from picking their nose to get some attention. Far too many staff really for the size and it would be better served by less more knowledgeable staff instead of the current set-up. Perhaps that’s just a Rio thing where places are just filled to the gunnels with poor staff? Some room for improvement especially in the service area.

I don’t see it as expensive, considering the quality of the beer you can get here, and that it’s imported from Europe. Throw in the domestic beer selection, and it’s quite reasonable value, especially for Ipanema.

Great beers, good food, and nice place. But waiters need more training about beer.

Except for the prices this is a super place! Way better selection than expected. Lots of Brazilian micros. Also solid and extensive international selection. Yummy ones. Nice crowded small place. Music low in background allowing for conversation. Locals neighborhood bar. All good.

The best beer-orientated bar I have visited so far in Rio. It’s located 5 minutes walk from Ipanema beach. Small Belgian beer-cafe style interior with many beers displayed on shelves and in the fridges. Beer selection is brilliant for Brazil. There were 7 beers on tap when I visited including 2 from Brazilian microbreweries. The bottle selection is extensive. The Brazilian selection was in excess of 60 bottles and included Baden Baden, Colorado, Eisenbahn, Falke and Wals. There is also a solid Belgium, Germany, UK and USA selection, but I concentrated on the more local options. Beers were all served in the appropriate glass, but were perhaps too cold. Food and snacks were tasty. Downsides were service is slow even though it’s a small place and some prices are pretty crazy (£250 of Brewdog STB anyone?). Despite that this is the must-visit location of Rio.
