2nd Jerusalem Craft Beer Fair -- This week
Proving you can't have too much of a good thing, or if it works, don't fix it, the organizers of the Jerusalem Craft Beer Fair are holding their autumn edition this week, Wednesday, November 2, and Thursday, November 3. The first Fair was held last July in the same location, the First Station, the old Turkish railroad station on David Remez Street. You can't beat that for ambiance, convenience, and good restaurants all around you.
The Fair opens at 6:00 p.m. and entrance is free. The beer will be sold at "discounted" prices for tastes and full glasses. Brewing lessons and demonstrations will be held throughout the event. Organizer Shmuel Naky of Birateinu, the Jerusalem Beer Center (which is sponsoring the Fair), says that new winter beers will be unveiled for the first time -- something that has me very interested.
The following craft breweries will be selling their beers:
I enjoyed it the first time -- small, intense, and lots of good beers a few steps away from each other -- and I hope this fledging tradition will continue. Even though the possibility of rain is being predicted for Wednesday night, I plan to be there. Hope to see you too!
