It’s a place with easy acess, with buses and taxis. A lot of graduation and wedding parties happenned at the main stage of the club, so the majority of the curitibanos already went to a party there. The model of the party will be maintained. A ticket will be needed to enter in the party, which has a glass included. The beer will be served in 150 ml, so it will make people taste different beers and know more about it. We are in contact with microbreweries of 6 states, to bring different labels to the party. In doing so, we will promote newer breweries that are poping in the scene. Futhermore, we will also have 10 options of food to pair with the beers of the festival.

Crowdfunding to raise money to produce the movie Petroleum is ours!

Posted on Mar 11, 2014

A few days ago, the section Paladar of the newspaper Estado de São Paulo published our will to produce a feature film about the story of the Petroleum. The movie will tell how this beer started at a backyard, went to Festivals, started to be produced at Wals, got national and international medals, arrived to Gauden Bier and it’s one of the few beers produced in two different breweries. In parallel, the movie will tell the evolution of the Brazilian craft beer scene since then. To raise funds to the production of the movie, we created a project at Cartase. This is the greatest and more successful crowdfunding platform in Brazil. The film will use images we made since the first batch of Petroleum, we will also record more testimonials in Blumenau at the Festival Nacional da Cerveja which occurs this week (March 12th to 15th). There are some images recorded by friends who will allow us to use on the movie as well. It is a movie with a low budget to the standards of the scene. The objective of the crowdfunding is to raise 50 thousand reais, part of this money will pay the Cartase’s taxes (circa 13%) and credit card taxes. The rest of the budget will be spent on the rewards and to the production of the documentary. At the end, 20 thousand reais will be spent to get the images, and create a good screenplay which depicts the story of the beer. We will give a panorama of the evolution of the Brazilian craft beer industry as well. The rewards for the supporters are: A Bottle of 600 ml of Petroleum (usually, it is sold in 355 ml bottles), developed just for the supporters, something for collectors A T-shirt to show you supported the movie DVD of the documentary Credits in the movie We created a reward that is a dinner for 2 people in the place where the first Petroleum was brewed. The event will have food paired with the 3 beers of DUM: Jan Kubis, Grand Cru and Petroleum, not necessarily in this order. For people who doesn’t live in Curitiba, we will contact you to arrange a good date for everyone. We hope to make the story of the Petroleum and the Brazilian craft beer scene clear to the majority of the public, and dig into the history of the artisanal culinary lost in the last century. Access the link, choose your reward and help us to tell this story....

Grand Cru’s release in Curitiba

Posted on Mar 7, 2014

It’s a great day for us! We will release at this saturday, 08/03, in three differents bars, our third beer, the Grand Cru. Don’t miss the opportunity to taste it, there are just one 50 liters kegs and some bottles. You can have more of it in Blumenau, at the Festival Nacional da Cerveja. The idea of Grand Cru became while we was developing a belgian wheat beer, with more body and alcohol than a wit bier, almost a belgian weisenbock. Using the classic belgian wheat beer yeast, it ferments it’s almost 9% of alcohol, having as basis our homemade wit. That’s why we call it as Double Wit. The coriander is well hidden behind the aromas of baia orange zests, which are very present in the beer. It was brewed at January 28th, with a huge amount of orange zests, a video was made to invite everyone to go to the brewery and have some orange juice with us, and plenty of people showed up there. We will try to do this again. Those who have patience will be rewarded 😛 So, there is the reward: Grand Cru. Service: Barbarium Rua Chile, 1765 – Rebouças, 80220-181 Curitiba Cervejaria da Vila R.

Do you speak english?

Posted on Feb 26, 2014

Our site was only in Portuguese, but the world speaks English. So we translated it to English. We have a lot of reasons to do that, we made videos with people who only speak English like Randy Mosher, Joseph Tucker and Maddog. In the Jan Kubis ad, the English subtitles were ready since the release. Here you can find where to buy our beers and know more about us and our history. If you are thinking of coming to Curitiba, send us a message, we will be pleased to receive you. In this link, you can read the impressions of a Greek blogger about our beers when he visited...
