Cerveja e futebol goleiam juntos no Brasil

Beer and soccer score together in Brazil

Rio de Janeiro - Beer and football make a powerful team in Brazil, which is bracing for a drinking bonanza when it hosts the World Cup.

The passion for football is well-known – it has won the World Cup five times.

Brazil is also the third-largest beer producer, brewing more than 13 billion litres of the stuff last year. Such is the country’s love of the beverage that you can even buy beer-flavoured ice cream.

When the sun is baking the sidewalks off Copacabana beach, the first reaction seems to be to order a beer that Brazilians always say arrives “stupidly” cold.

A recent survey commissioned by brewing giant Ambev, the country’s largest company by market value, asked Brazilians to list their national passions. Seventy-seven percent named football; 35 percent said beer.

Now brewers are anticipating a beer boom during the World Cup, which Brazil will host from June 12 to July 13.

Rio de Janeiro - Cerveja e futebol fazem uma equipe forte no Brasil, que está se preparando para uma bonança de beber quando se hospeda a Copa do Mundo.

A paixão pelo futebol é bem conhecida - ganhou a Copa do Mundo cinco vezes.

O Brasil também é o terceiro maior produtor de cerveja, produzindo mais de 13 bilhões de litros do material do ano passado. Tal é o amor da bebida que você pode até comprar sorvete com sabor de cerveja no país.

Quando o sol está assando as calçadas na praia de Copacabana, a primeira reação parece ser a de pedir uma cerveja que os brasileiros sempre dizem chega "estupidamente" gelada.

Uma pesquisa recente encomendada pela gigante cervejeira Ambev, a maior empresa do país em valor de mercado, pediu brasileiros para listar suas paixões nacionais. Setenta e sete por cento chamado futebol; 35 por cento disse cerveja.

Agora os cervejeiros estão antecipando um boom de cerveja durante a Copa do Mundo, que o Brasil sediará a partir de 12 junho - 13 julho.
