Two festivals on Friday, June 22: The 7th in Beersheva and the 1st in Givat Ada.

Two beer festivals are coming up at the end of this week, Friday, June 22.  Unfortunately, you can't attend both -- unless you're up to driving "under the influence" from the Haifa District to Beersheva, or vice versa.  Not recommended.

Seventh Beer7 Fest
Beersheva, June 22

It's the seventh time the Beer7 Fest is being held, and I know it well.  You get to taste the beers of enthusiastic home-brewers from the south of Israel.  Some of them have been pouring their beers since the start of the Beer7 Fests, but I understand that some will be new.

Doors open at noon at the Baraka Club in Beersheva's Old City, 70 Shloshet Bnei Ein Harod Street (that's a mouthful of a street name).  Over 40 different beers will be available at 5 shekels for a taste, and 15 shekels for a third of a liter.  There is an entrance fee of 30 shekels, but you get a branded glass to take home.  

The spark plug behind the Beer7 Fest is Gilad Ne-Eman, head of the Home-Brewers Guild of Beersheva, and partner (with Tomer Ronen) of the Brew Shop in Beersheva, and of Tog Brewery.  

As I said, I have always enjoyed the Beer7 events and I plan to be at this one as well.  Always a wonderful atmosphere, friendly and ebullient brewers, and plenty of fine and unusual beers.  See you there!

First Beer Brewers Festival
Givat Ada, June 22

  • Also opening at noon at Ada's Beer & Friends Pub is the first Beer Brewers Festival in Givat Ada, south of Haifa.  Alongside of industrial beers from Israel and abroad, there will be beers from several local home-brewers.  That's where it get interesting.

    If you're not a member of the Ada's Beer & Friends cooperative, admission is 25 shekels (credit card only).  A glass and a taste of beer and a portion of smoked meat costs 15 shekels.  A third of a liter of Tuborg is only 8 shekels, while the same amount of Hoegaarden, Stella Artois or Weihenstephan is 10 shekels.  A hot dog on a roll is 12 shekels, and an "extra large" slice of pizza is 10 shekels. 

    There are also other food stands and music.  Sounds like it could be fun.
