Abstract: This article proposes a comparative study involving two breweries: Portugália in Lisbon and Antarctica in Joinville, Brazil. Deactivated and with their buildings in a state of degradation, we propose an analysis of the different reuse plans and urban regeneration projects that would involve these two examples of industrial heritage. The sources used are varied: official documents, journalistic articles, literary records and a specific bibliography. We articulate concepts from the fields of archaeology and industrial heritage, urbanism, conservation and reuse and restoration with the intention of substantiating questions and problems regarding the circumstances that may have prevented both these industrial spaces, as well as the adequate reuse and safeguard of old buildings and their industrial components. Initially, we address the impact of the Industrial Revolution on brewing and then the reuse plans of each brewery, highlighting the contexts and the way in which the preservation policy was developed in each case.
