A cold winter day (8 degrees Celsius) in Porto Alegre. After waiting for about two hours in the line, I got my first shot. Hoping for better days!
Beginning of August 2020. Bored as hell because of the pandemic, I decided to give it a try. And it worked! The beer tasted so flavorful that I don’t think I will stop brewing any time soon!
I basically used 5 liters of water, hops, dry malt extract and Kveik. Ah, and sugar for the carbonation process! That’s it! No cooking, no pans, no complicated process.
One of the things I like the most about traveling is discovering new places. Nowadays with so many tourists traveling everywhere, it’s not so easy to find a new destination, a place no one has told you about. So, whenever I get the chance to go to a place I have not heard about, I like to take my chances. I keep my expectations down in order not to get frustrated so easily and I search for the bare minimum information not to spoil the experience. And then I go..
Sometimes we are unlucky, but sometimes we are lucky! San Gregorio de Polanco was one of these lucky strikes. A hidden gem.
A few days in the Amazon in a little village called Alter do Chão, which is located midway between Manaus (AM) and Belém (PA). This place reveals a different Amazon. A place where the river plays the role of a sea. That’s why people call it the Brazilian Caribbean.
Maquiné is certainly a great place place to explore. Lots of waterfalls and stunning landscapes around.

Last October my older son and I went to Cambará do Sul (south of Brazil) to do some hiking. Cambará is located in a region which has a few national parks with canyons and lots of stunning landscapes.
