Botequim do Cesinha

Gourmet beer in a garage-sized boteco

André Santana/Time Out

Cesinha and his wife Marisa run this small-but-perfectly-formed boteco, barely bigger than a garage, where the size and simple decor belie a truly impressive selection of beer. Two fridges, filling almost a third of the space, are stocked with 80 Brazilian and foreign beers. Team up a Newcastle Brown Ale, Colorado Ale, Spitfire or Bishops Finger, with a meticulously prepared tábua de frios (cheeses and cold meats, from R$21) or the roast beef sandwich (R$10). Cachaça lovers will be delighted too with the reasonably-priced selection, including Claudionor, from Minas Gerais. And if you’re unlucky enough to find it closed – note it shuts early – appreciate instead the amorous graffiti covering the door, sprayed by the daddy of São Paulo street art, Rui Amaral.
