The first "Social Beer Festival" -- April 12

Image may contain: one or more people, drink and text

Quietly and gently, the 2019 Israeli beer festival season is opening as we write.  I'll try to keep you informed as I hear of them -- reserving my right to "pass over" those which seem to be more self-promotional than real beer festivals.

The first in sight claims to be Israel's first Social Beer Festival, with all proceeds being contributed to the Latet organization to provide meals for poor families over the Passover holiday.

It's taking place on Kibbutz Revadim, about midway between Ashdod and Jerusalem, on Friday, April 12, between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.  Some 20 home-brewers will be selling their beers for 10 shekels each.  There will also be food stands and live music. Entrance is free.

Here are the names (or brands) of the home-brewers who have been publicized:

The Excuse Brewery
Gil Bronstein
Barak Luzon
Alex Fux (The Three-Legged Crow)
Yonatan Turk (Joniz)
Altman Gang-A-Bus
Peleg Magen (Buah)

Some of them I know; some are new to me.  But I'm sure you'll have a good time tasting their beers.  And the  money you spend is going to a good cause.

Or call 050-685-9662 (Sagiv) or 054-830-0037 (Shani).
