Anything goes south of the equator, it's like bizzaro world down there. White is black and black is white...(that is if we saw colors in terms of color, which we don't). Thats why when powerhouse startup brewer Daniel Diehl from Narcose in Porto Allergre, Brazil came to town, we went back to the drawing board with a Yerba Matte Pale Ale. The Yerba Matte that we used is called Chimarrao and so we shortened it to CHIMale, which I guess is pronounced a lot like shemale, which coincidently there are a lot of in Brazil apparently. I found that out last time I was in Brazil (Wild Times indeed), Luckily as I mentioned earlier, south of the equator nothing counts, and it never really happened. But this beer did.
