Mother Dearest, We Salute You.

Bar Christmas, Easter and Valentine’s, today is one of the most important dates of the year…Yes, it’s mother’s day! The bakeries of Nicaragua are overrun with orders, and the florists are raking in serious cash money. Hecho wants to wish all the mamacitas and mamasotas out there a very happy mother’s day, and while we’re at it we’d like to highlight two very special celebrations of this day.

Hitlist III

6. Erdmann’s. First it was the black gold (coffee) and now it’s something even better. Foodie-heaven Espressonista in Granada has provided beer lovers in Nicaragua with the happiest alternative since the seasonal Maestro beer was launched! The artisanal, German-inspired home brew – named after the brewer/inventor, Falk Erdmann – comes in small quantities of ales and stouts, and rates highly on our yumometer. Erdmann’s is only available in limited edition batches, so you may have to sit tight, but believe us – it’s worth a road trip AND a wait. Cheers!
