Brothers Tiago and Jose Felipe Carneiro started early, brewing alongside their father as teenagers. They are a passionate duo, with ideas and techniques far off the beaten path. Their brewery is located in the city of Belô Horizonte and was the first in the country to feature a tasting room. It is this city that gives their beers their brand: Belô. Translated as “beautiful, fine, handsome or lovely", we think that all of these terms describe the elegant beers of Wäls.

In the past few years, Wäls has become one of the most respected breweries in the world, their influence being felt outside of Brazil. Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery collaborated on a beer with them, joining the Brothers Carneiro in the sugar cane fields to harvest and refine sugar for the first sugar cane beer. At the prestigious Mondial de la Bière competition in Montréal, Quebec, Wäls was awarded an unprecedented 5 medals, including Platinum for their Brazilian Imperial Stout Belô Petroleum.
