A round-up of the things that the Travel Nibble editor likes for this month, from artisanal brews in México to a cocktail shaker that you can take with you while camping.
Los Muertos Brewing
¡Feliz cinco de Mayo! Tequilas are not the only alcoholic beverages you should look for when you visit México. The country also has a very healthy craft beer scene, with brewmasters mixing international techniques from other beer-forward países such as Belgium and Germany with local ingredients such as tamarind and serrano peppers.
Los Muertos brewing, in Puerto Vallarta’s Zona Romántica, is a ten-year-old brewpub with an impressive 14 beers on tap. They don’t just have your regular lager either; IPAs, Hefeweizens, Stouts, and Porters are available for your drinking pleasure. Hungry? Get a slice or two of their housemade pizzas or—my personal favorite—a hamburger with blue cheese.

florence by mills Sunny Skies Facial Moisturizer
Now that we’re in the middle of spring, you should not be putting on the same emollient-rich moisturizer that you used during the winter months. Instead, go lightweight and non-greasy, such as florence by mills’s Sunny Skies (launches today!). This reef-safe moisturizer contains vitamin E for maximum conditioning. Added bonus: it has broad spectrum SPF30, keeping you protected from UVA and UVB rays.
Say “Willkommen” to Munich, the first Lufthansa Airbus A350 with upgraded business class
Last April 29, a Lufthansa Airbus A350-900 was christened “Munich” at the Munich airport.
In one of the largest modernizations the German flag-carrier has taken in its history, amenities in Munich’s business class section include direct access to the aisle for all seats, seats that convert to a two-meter-long bed, and of course restaurant-quality menus and service while you’re 30,000 feet.
Inaugural routes for the quietest and most fuel-efficient aircraft in Lufthansa’s fleet span between the Bavarian capital and the Canadian cities of Montréal, Toronto, and Vancouver.
evolvetogether Hydrating Lip Balm
Eco-minded beauty brand evolvetogether’s new gender-neutral lip balm does not need to go in your 3-1-1 bag (as it’s a solid). Its bigger size allows you to not just use it to keep your puckers hydrated while on the air, but you can also swipe it on your cuticles, flyaways, or dry patches. (Look for beeswax, shea butter, castor-, jojoba seed-, or coconut oil in the ingredients list, as these are excellent at sealing in moisture.)
Each balm supports Take 3 for the Sea, a registered Australian charity that helps keep plastic waste out of our seas.
High Camp Highball Shaker
Go beyond the spiked seltzers next time you have some drinks while outdoors with High Camp Flask’s Highball Shaker. Inspired by a traditional Mason jar, this vacuum insulated flask is fitted with a coupling strainer for pouring to individual cups or for drinking direct from the glass, high ball-style.
The shaker keeps your drink hot or cold for 24 hours and features a leak-proof stainless steel plug cap.
