One of the great things about running Brew-School apart from meeting lots of interesting and lovely brewers is that you get an opportunity to inspire and inform some fantastic new brewing businesses. Take for instance Portugal's newest and biggest craft beer brewery located in the Portuguese capital Lisbon called MUSA. I've included an image to their new brewery looking very shiny and new.
I'm sure this brewery will help put craft brewing on the map in Portugal which has no real history of craft beer production and has like many countries had to rely on pretty moribund beer from a couple of massive mainstream breweries. Paulo who came on our course back in October 2015 in his own words:
Dear Julie and Chris,So if you do ever find yourself in Lisbon the brewery is located on:
It has elapsed more than one year since I attended your fantastic courses. They were key for my beer project. Thank you!After several months of hard work we managed to get our new and shiny brewery ready for firing up. Please find attached a high resolution photo of our brewery in Lisbon ready to start brewing. Please let me know if you ever visit Lisbon. It will be nice to invite you for a freshly brewed beer directly from the tanks. Paulo
