Beato Browers, a multipurpose space that encompassed The Browers Company, a spin-off of the Super Bock Group, which was born with the main objective of contributing to the appreciation of the beer culture and growth of the beer category. Based on a strong collaborative spirit, this new project will establish collaborations with different national and international partners, inside and outside the brewery universe, always seeking to provide new and better experiences around beer.

Beers will be produced on a small scale, under the seal of the Browers brand, which will coexist in the same space with other national and international beer brands, to offer a diversified and quality portfolio to all those who visit the Beato Browers. It also entails a restaurant area, in partnership with the Multifood Group, to complement the brewery offer with gastronomy that enhances the brewery experience, and there will be regular events in the space, which may be of a brewery, cultural or other nature. Central axis of public access to Culture and Creative Industries, namely with events and integrated collaborative activities in the areas of Music and Public and Urban Art.

Praça Hub, Lda was created to develop the PRAÇA project and brings together a team where everyone shares the same purpose and passion for the wealth of our products, authenticity, responsibility to better feed future generations and an obsession with innovation and making things happen.
A Praça intends to be a new experience, a change of paradigm, a return to the origins. A space where there is no boundary between what one eats and what one buys, and where the protagonist will be the product. A rediscovery of our products, smells and tastes. A return to the praça (local produce market).

Given the centrality of the Startup Lisboa building in the HCB, it will act as the intersection of the various existing pedestrian axes of the complex, reinforcing the integrating mission of the building and of Startup Lisboa itself. The building is intended to be an open space, without physical barriers at the perimeter, with a central reception point to welcome and direct visitors. The covered public square will be the main lounge of Startup Lisboa, serving as a support to all users and visitors.
