The Tusker of Brazil!

The Tusker of Brazil!

So this was my first must have — a local beer brewed in Brazil! It was crisp, light and fairly inexpensive — three of my key criteria. The company sponsors Carnivale in Rio and I love their latest “innovation”:
During the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, the high consumption of alcoholic drinks is the main responsible factor for the increase in traffic accidents. Drunk drivers are directly involved in the increase of 50% of fatal accidents during this time of the year. Antarctica’s objective, the most consumed beer brand and sponsor of the event, was to make its consumers arrive safely at home after drinking. We developed The Beer Turnstile. A new underground turnstile for which the ticket was an empty Antarctica beer can. Via optical reading, the can was scanned and the passage freed. The person just needed to save the last beer can and use it to get home safely.
