Do you remember Asif Beer? It was a standard fixture at almost every beer festival for many years and was readily available in liquor stores. It had a catchy label of an old-time sower of seeds against a background of a swaying field of barley.
I enjoyed their four regular beers and I also appreciated their names:
Wild Blond -- a citrusy wheat beer.
Enticing Redhead -- a fruity amber ale.
Flaming Brunette -- a very strong (8.5% ABV) dark beer.
Surprising Dark Haired Female (there's no word for that in English, is there?) -- a smoky porter.
I called the owner and brewmaster, Shimon Osher, at Moshav Ramot Naftali in the Upper Galilee, and he confirmed: Asif has not been brewing beer commercially for more than a year. Shimon has been brewing at home for his own family and neighbors. His medium-term plans are to open a pub and to brew beer for the moshav and the region.
When I told him that I enjoyed Asif Beer and would like to see it back, he said, "So would we."
