beer festival @ lapa
Posted September 22nd, 2010 - 2:00 am by from Brasilia, Brazil (Permalink)
hi all, today i knew a very interesting place at lapa called "lapa café" (rua gomes freire, 453). they have LOTS of beer brands from all over the world (many small producers), an art gallery and they have some events:

a) there will be an official beer tasting next tuesday (sep 28th) starting at 18h!!! i have to check the details (how much it is, how many glasses per person...;

b) they also have a jazz and blues show every wednesday starting 19h (no excuse for those who work on the following day). i have to check how much is the couvert;

c)we can also meet on a day were they dont have an event so the place will be more "ours" ;) i believe we could meet there and organize an unofficial beer tasting: every 2 or 3 people - depending on the number of attendees - ask for one different brand and we share so everyone can taste a glass.

anyway i want to see the interest in joining and participation with suggestions of you before advertise on events page and rio community.

the place can accomodate a big group and the manager is cool.

i can give a call tomorrow but id like you to give suggestions and make questions as soon as possible so we can advertise the event.

in my opinion, the best choice for the meeting is going on a regular monday or tuesday so the staff will be less busy and, with no musical show we can talk more freely. what do you think?

deadline: friday 24th at 17h. whatever we decide till there will be the final agreement and will be advertised. i know its a short time to organize but if we decide for next tuesday it will be little time to let people know and the best day to put events is friday that everybody checks the forum to see what they are gonna do on the weekend.

ive been there today and checked the prices:

- every wed = R$15,00 for the jazz and blues show

- next tue (sep 28th) = R$50,00 for the beer tasting that allows you to drink 5 different brands, no food included. theres a beer expert teaching everyone on this event.

the prices vary a lot, from the most common brands (cheapier) till some exclusive ones that can cost more than R$100,00 a bottle... so i guess is not an opportunity to be skunk drunk but to really enjoy the beverage ;)
