My more veteran readers may remember that there was a time I tried to report on every little local beer festival that was taking place around the country. Drove me a little crazy so I stopped.
Last summer, because of the coronavirus, there were no beer festivals in Israel but they're back this year. I'm not about to go chasing after every little announcement of a "beer festival," but if I hear about them in time, I'll let you know the dates. They are basically organized anyway by the same two or three companies, with the beer provided by one of the two or three agencies which distribute their portfolio of local and foreign beers.
They all have much the same components, so if I mention them once you can assume your local festival will have the same.
● Free entry (18 or older)
● Dozens of different local and foreign beers for sale.
● Food stands and food trucks.
● Live music in most cases.
● Places to sit and eat.
● Always a good idea to get there early and use public transportation.
