Beer festival season opens May 3 with Gilboa Fest

The Israeli beer festival season opens unofficially next Thursday, May 3, with the first Gilboa Beer Festival.  It's taking place in the courtyard of the Tachlis Youth Center near the Tel Yosef intersection.  Gates open at 6:00 p.m.  Children are admitted only if accompanied by an adult.

According to the publicity, over 50 different beers from Israel and abroad will be on sale.  There will also be food booths and food trucks, live music, sale of handicrafts, activities for children, and spacious seating areas.  At 11:00 p.m., the whole area will turn into an outdoor "mega bar" with dancing and a DJ.  

The system is the same as at the Modi'in Beer Festival which was held last summer.  This is no surprise since it's being organized by the same "impresario," Alechko Neznansky.   

How does it work?

Entrance is free, but you pay for the beer and the food.  Tickets will be sold for three, four or five glasses of beer (each glass a quarter of a liter).  The cost for the tickets at the festival are 51 shekels for three glasses, 66 shekels for four glasses, and 81 shekels for five glasses.  There are discounts for soldiers and students.  Single glasses cost 18 shekels for a quarter of a liter, and 23 shekels for a third of a liter.      

You can buy discounted tickets ahead of time online (at https://www.eventer.co.il/beerfestgilboa) for 47 shekels, 62 shekels, and 77 shekels.
