Jim Woods (artistic rendering left) is an avid yerba mate drinker. When not lounging around in his flowing camisa roja and matching gorra, he enjoys brewing flavorful craft beers and drinking them responsibly.
It was his love for hoppy beers and yerba mate coupled with his thirst for adventure, as evidenced by his ambitious patillas, that led him to discover MateVeza.
One day while partaking in an afternoon mate, he cracked open a pale ale that had a prominent flavor and aroma of cascade hops. Chispas flew as the flavors of yerba mate and cascade hops frolicked on his lengua, and the original perky pale ale was born.
