Mistura forever.
Happy ears.

17 May: Try some Lime, G!

It’s been 1-year that Senhor G has been selecting the beats in A.M.O. Let’s celebrate with a couple kegs of Experimental Lime Witbier!

Initially spinning with Mr. Korski, who is back to Budapest now, G has been carefully selecting tunes to fit in with A.M.O. Brewery’s open nights, for gatherings of friends, travelers, beer geeks and music lovers.

You can taste the Experimental Lime Witbier with us for the first time this Friday, May 17, 2019.
Dry-hopped keg with kaffir lime leaves.

The Brew
The “Thorny Devil IPA, 7,0%” will be launched simultaneously at A.M.O. Brewery and DeBru on Friday, 10 May, 2019.

Craft beer and craft beer events are brewing in Lisbon! The “revolution” against established industry players and limited beer styles has been happening around the world, and it’s permeating Portugal as well.

A.M.O. Brewery opened in 2017 in the Campo Santana area of Lisbon. Its owner and brewer Margaret Orlowski (whose initials make A.M.O.) comes from Canada, where she learned to appreciate beer, and brew at home with friends.

DeBru opened in 2018 and is led by Henrique Melo, a barista and home brewer from Perth, Australia. Also passionate about everything craft, he opened an Open Social Space to promote the craft culture, from beer to coffee, art and everything between, also in the Campo Santana area.

Both A.M.O. Brewery and DeBru see craft beer as a social experience – in the drinking of course, but also in the production process! Their common backgrounds as expatriates, similar approaches to beer (and life) and neighbourhood proximity led them to collaborate together on a new beer inspired by the community they belong to.

Using some Australian hops varieties that Henrique had, he and Margaret designed a beer to be brewed at A.M.O. to showcase those hops. To represent their brew, they chose the thorny devil – a small, spiked but friendly lizard found in the Australian Outback. The beer is bitter yet fruity, and strong at 7.0% ABV.

Now, here, in the Campo Santana in Lisbon, you can drink a Lisbon-inspired Australian IPA brewed locally by a Canadian-Portuguese and a Brasil-Australian!

9 May – 21 June: Afronemas – Art Launch

Exposição Afronemas: Imagens Acústicas
Artista: Paulo do Amparo – Olinda (BR)(English below)Séculos atrás, os navios negreiros alimentavam os regimes escravocratas nos canaviais e plantações de café do Brasil, nos campos de algodão da América e nos mares caribenhos. Formaram-se guetos e favelas onde uma rica cultura de resistência emergiu.

Afronemas nos traz um recorte de 9 imagens acústicas de Paulo do Amparo. Gravurista, ilustrador e músico baseado em Olinda, litoral do nordeste brasileiro, Paulo do Amparo nos apresenta em acrílico sobre tela a memória contemporânea e coletiva da Diáspora africana: os toques ancestrais dos terreiros, a mandinga da capoeira, o refinamento rústico do samba e do jazz e a delicadeza áspera das vozes.

Obriganza preparou uma harmonização sonora especial para saborear as deliciosas cervejas da AMO! Beba o groove, sinta a cerveja!

Art Exhibit Afronemas: Acoustic Images
Artist: Paulo do Amparo – Olinda (BR)

Centuries ago, the Atlantic slave trade supported the slave regimes in Brazilian sugar cane and coffee plantations, the cotton fields of America and the Carribean seas. Ghetos and favelas were formed where a rich culture of resistance emerged.

Afronemas brings us a selection of 9 acoustic images of Paulo do Amparo. Working as an engraver, illustrator and musician based in Olinda, on the northeastern Brazilian coast, Paulo do Amparo presents the contemporary and collective memory of the African Diaspora in acrylic on canvas: the ancestral beats of the terreiros, the spell of capoeira, the rustic refinement of samba and jazz and the rough delicacy of the voices.

Obriganza has prepared a special sound harmonization to go with our delicious AMO beers. Drink the groove, feel the beer!
