Brazilian Challenge Day 64: Cerveja in the Sand

I’m not a huge beer fan. But the Brazilians are right, there is nearly nothing better than a cold beer on a hot day at the beach.

The Brazilian beers tend to be lighter with less alcohol, so it is quite refreshing to drink one and it adds to the relaxation of an ocean view.
