New festivals are multiplying faster than lager yeast at 20°C (68°F). In the interest of time, I just want to report about one more which is taking place this weekend, September 2-3 on Kibbutz Beit Alfa in the Gilboa region.
This one's called the Valley Beer Fair and the exact location is the Lalos Event Park right on the kibbutz. You have to be over 18 to get in, and entrance is free. On Friday, the Fair will be open noon until 1:00 a.m., and on Saturday (Shabbat) noon until 10:00 p.m.
There will be beer, food and music -- the staples of all beer festivals it seems. From the logos on the poster, the following beers will be on sale: Ralph (a brewery on Kibbutz Gal'ed which I'm hearing about for the first time), The Dictator, Shepherds (from Bir Zeit in the West Bank), Bazelet (Golan Brewery), Vilde Chaye, Fass Brewhouse, and Barzel.
If you go, tell them Israel Brews and Views sent you. And if they say "Who?", ask them, "How is it that you don't know?"
