The first time we joined forces with Samuel and Paulo Cavalcanti of Bodebrown was in 2012 when Stone co-founder Greg Koch traveled to Brazil to brew the landmark Stone / Bodebrown Cacau IPA. Fast forward to September 2016, Bodebrown co-founders Samuel and Paulo made the journey to Berlin to attend our Stone Berlin Grand Opening Celebration and we officially began formulating the idea for this collaboration. Finally, everything came together in late November of 2017, and we brewed this long-anticipated special beer. “Virando Brasiliero con Madeira Vermelha” means “‘turning Brazilian’ with red wood,” which we chose for its uniquely Brazilian flavor thanks to aging on Amburana wood, traditionally used in the production of Brazil’s famous spirit, cachaça.
