Brazil is such an enormous country, to fly or drive all around it to take in its many breweries would be daunting and require months. This is the perfect time to visit Brazil for beer lovers. It’s also the perfect time for weather as North America begins to cool down for the winter and Brazil is coming into spring with warm and pleasant weather, but not too hot.
This tour will include your hotels, most of your meals and all of your beer during brewery and taproom visits, company meals and two full days at the Mondial Beer Festival.
We’ll also do some sightseeing, get to know Brazil and some of its most popular attractions, hearty cuisine, sights and culture. You’ll walk away with a better understanding and appreciation for this fascinating country, its people and warm hospitality.
