Episode 242 - Miguel Rivas, The Beer Trekker
Happy Monday, Thieves! For the second week in a row we are back next to the popcorn machine at Treadwell Park. There's so much diacetyl in the air but thankfully Miguel Rivas is here to take our mind off of such things.
Miguel is a Brooklyn based photographer, his background in photography comes from his passion for live music shows, traveling and the artistry of craft beers. Born in Paris, TX, raised in Venezuela and he has been calling NYC home for the last 17 years.
You likely know him best as the founder and curator of The BeerTrekker project, a photographic journey and storytelling about the beer culture and the people behind them.
Since 2017 Miguel has been invited as a beer judge to some of the most important beer competitions in Latin America and over the last year he traveled extensively in the region to places like Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, Ecuador and Argentina to explore and document the local beer scene.
We spent a lot of time talking about his travels and he wound up pouring some special bottles garnered during his trips. They were a delight to drink. Tune in and let us know what you think!
