The element that made me a bit more Brazilian today was that I had a Malzbier with dinner. The drink, of German origins, is a low alcohol beverage that is just a little bit sweet but very much enjoyed by the Brazilians. In this country, Bramha is the big distributor. I’ve never seen this type of brew in other countries, although I’ve heard it’s popular not just in Brazil and Germany, but also Austria and Switzerland. My mother-in-law told me that her doctors encouraged her to drink it at the end of her pregnancy to help breastfeeding (I believe it was Guinness that my doctor recommended in the U.S. for the same purposes…)
