  • Description


    Hi, I'm Maxi, a dentist by profession, beer lover and have my own brewery. Also a sustainable farmer and musician by nature. After travelling throughout South Central and North-America. I decided to settled in a small plot of land and the foothill of the Andes mountains in a charming town of Las Flores, 190 Km northwest of the capital of San Juan province. Currently, I live with my couple Irene and sometimes have the visiting of my two kids and friends. I work in the local hospital and public health clinic offering my dentist service to the local people and in my spare time I'm building a homebrewery and beergarden, raising animals, gardening.
