Novo Brazil Brewing was established by founder and owner Tiago Carneiro and his family in 2015 in Eastlake, Chula Vista. The brewery has become a celebrated name in the craft beer industry, and is known for its lively flavors and unwavering commitment to quality.

Novo embraces a unique beer culture evident in its vibrant branding, intricate aromas, and thoughtful flavor profiles. Besides its Eastlake brewery location, Novo has expanded to brewpubs and taprooms in Otay Ranch, Ocean Beach, Imperial Beach, and is about to open a new brewpub in Mission Valley, and another one in San Antonio, Texas by the end of 2024. Novo will also be in the new Terminal 1 at the San Diego Airport – a huge achievement for a local Brewery in San Diego.

Novo has achieved a U.S. bronze medal for their Corvo Negro Russian Imperial Stout in the 2016 World Beer Cup and recognition for Best IPA and Best Lager in the 2016 World Beer Awards, awarded to their Otay IPA and Chula Pils Pilsner. Their NOVA hard kombuchas have also garnered acclaim.

NOVA Kombucha, a prominent hard kombucha brand in Southern California, achieved acclaim through its dedication to excellence and innovation, earning multiple awards at the San Francisco Bartender Spirits Awards in both 2022 and 2023.

Securing a contract with Snapdragon Stadium marked a pivotal moment for the company, solidifying its presence in the San Diego sports scene. NOVA earned the esteemed titles of Official Hard Kombucha of Snapdragon Stadium and Official Hard Kombucha of the San Diego Wave FC women’s soccer team, showcasing a strong commitment to community engagement and sports.
