Japas Cervejaria x TETRA

TETRA Hotel welcomes Japas Cervejaria to Silicon Valley as part of the all-female brewery’s first U.S. tour on August 26 and August 27.

An all-female, Nipo-Brazilian trio is sharing their passion, craft and culture at TETRA Hotel during a series of events as part of their first tour across the United States. An intimate fireside chat, brewers dinner and summer beer celebration are the team’s only events in Northern California, where TETRA will also debut its co-branded beer with Japas called Omotenashi, an international style pale lager with rice and yuzu. The special brew, exclusive to TETRA Hotel and its bar and restaurant, celebrates their shared approach to hospitality that includes serving beyond expectation and from the heart, or “Omotenashi” in Japanese.

Founded in 2015 by three women who met through beer, Maíra Kimura, Yumi Shimada and Fernanda Ueno, Japas Cervejaria was born out of bar conversations, meetings and beer festivals. They are some of the few women and, coincidentally, also some of the few Japanese descendants in the beer industry.

Nipo-Brazilians, or Japanese-Brazilians, are Brazilian born individuals with Japanese ancestry. Brazil is home to the largest Japanese population outside of Japan, stemming from Japanese emigration to Brazil in 1908 when the Japanese ship Kasato-Maru arrived in the port of Santos, south of São Paulo. San Francisco and San Jose are two of the top 10 U.S. cities with the highest Japanese American population, making Silicon Valley the perfect destination to continue to introduce Japas Cerejaria to the United States.

“Our role is to raise awareness not only for our empowerment within feminism and Asian causes, but also to embrace all kinds of diversity that are often excluded,” says Yumi Shimada, who also serves as creative director for Japas.“Because we are women and Japanese-descendants in a world of white and male dominance, it is more important than ever to show that representation matters.”

Meet the makers, sip on beer and mix and mingle at the new TETRA Hotel.
