Chicago lost out on the 2016 Olympiad. Oh, how great it would have been for the ones who love beer as much as sport. Goose Island, Piece, Map Room, Hopleaf, and Delilah's to name a few.
Sadly, beer doesn't come to mind when you think Rio de Janeiro. All there is there is some of the most beautiful beaches in the world being walked on by some of the best looking women in the world wearing floss as swimsuits. Damn.
All is not lost, though. I'm sure Inbev will have it's fair share of advertising dollars pushing Brahma on the spectators. But, I have a few other options if you are to venture down to South America.
Xingu: Actually the only Brazilian beer I've consumed. Damn good black lager made by Kaiser, part of SABMiller.
Belgian Beer Cafe: If I were the Belgian Olympic Chairman, which I'm not, I would use this as a base camp for all of my athletes. It would help the tiny country with their defeats. "Oh, did you lose your jousting match. Here have an Orval."
Devassa: Brewpub in Rio. Looks like they have about 6 beers, but my Portuguese is...well, non-existent.
