‘Beer bottle covers in Brazil’ by K.J.S.Chatrath

DSC08764 400 33I was somewhere in Brazil and ordered a small 330 ml beer which was served to me swiftly. Then I noticed that people sitting at the adjoining tables were served some big bottles with unusual looking plastic covers.

My son saw my anxiety and ordered a big bottle (650 ml) for himself. When it came, and the waiter left, I fiddled with the cover as casually as I could. It was a removable cover to ensure that the chilled beer remains cold till one finishes it off…and orders another.

And since that was Brazil, the cover, quite predictably had sketches of football and foot ball players.
