Brahma is a Brazilian beer, originally made by the Companhia Cervejaria Brahma, which was founded in 1888. The brewery is currently the fifth largest in the world. The brands are now owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Brahma produced their national Malzbier in 1914. After that the company began expanding internationally. The company bought the license for distribution of the Germania brand, which later was known as Guanabara, and was one of the earliest of the Brazilian beer brands. Brahma introduced the new bottled draft Brahma Chopp in 1934, and it became a Brazilian bestseller.[1]
