BEERS postponed until 2019; again to be "exhibition," not "festival"

Not happening!
There will be no BEERS festival in Tel Aviv this summer.  Originally scheduled for August 7-9, Israel's biggest beer event of the year has been postponed until next spring, 2019.

"Israel has enough beer festivals," said Avi Ben Ami, whose company has been organizing the BEERS extravaganza since 2011.  "We're taking it back to before 2014, when it was a beer exhibition for people in the food and beverage professions.  Of course, we will also continue to have days when it is open to the general public.  Everybody wants to know about good beer."

Avi told me that the BEERS Exhibition will be held shortly after the Passover holiday in late March or early April.  The venue will be either the Nokia Arena or the Heichal Tarbut (Charles Bronfman Auditorium), both in Tel Aviv.

I'll let you know as soon as I get more details.  In the meantime, the biggest event this summer is the Jerusalem Beer Festival (Ir HaBira), scheduled for August 29-30.
