Novo Brazil Brewing Ready To Unveil Huge New Tasting Room & Restaurant In San Diego's Mission Valley

January 10, 2024

San Diego-born Novo Brazil Brewing Company is continuing its area expansion with the launch of a new, 11,500 square-foot brewpub restaurant in Mission Valley.

Founded by Tiago Carneiro and family, Novo Brazil debuted on Lane Avenue in Chula Vista in 2015 and has been expanding operations ever since, including launching a 12,000 square foot brewpub and restaurant in Otay Ranch Town Center in Chula Vista only a couple miles from its original brewery. The company also has a brewpub within Bikeway Village in Imperial Beach, a kombucha tasting room in Ocean Beach and once had a taproom as part of Market on 8th Food Hall in National City. Last October, three people were shot and wounded at the Novo Brazil location in Otay Ranch Town Center mall.

This week, Novo Brazil will open its most central San Diego branch in the space that last housed a branch of Tilted Kilt within Westfield Mission Valley shopping center, which was purchased last year for $290 million by Los Angeles-based Lowe Enterprises and Colorado's Real Capital Solutions. The new outpost will offer an 8,500 square-foot interior dining space with large video walls that feature fog and light shows for celebrating sports feats and many high-definition televisions for sports viewing, as well as a 3,000 square foot outdoor patio with fire-pit seating. The 350-seat restaurant will house an onsite brewhouse and serve more than 60 taps of beer, kombucha, seltzers and more, as well as eclectic food offerings like sandwiches, tacos, burgers, empanadas, appetizers and Brazilian-inspired entrees.

Novo Brazil's newest venue opens January 11 at 1640 Camino Del Rio North in San Diego's Mission Valley. For more information, visit
