Hebrew Beer
image Is Hebrew Beer for real? Absolutely. And it comes in two varieties: Genesis Ale and Messiah Bold. I've never seen this in my local beer store, but I'll have to look for it. When I get my hands on some I'll add a bottle of it to my rapidly growing collection of weird beers.

I've had it and it's pretty good. The label is funny too. I'm not sure where my husband picked it up but probably at the big discount liquor store we stop at every once in a while.

He'brew is sold in Berkeley, CA at health food stores. I've never tried it, though.

I've been to several liquor sotres and package warehouses through out the mid west and it shows up sporadically. It's starting to catch on with the Jewish community out here. I bought my first one as a single beer in Dayton. I buy it regularly now.

So, I guess, you could say "It Isreal!"

I just tried this beer. It was very good, actually. Light brown color, 1/4" head. Stronger flavor than most brews. Slight bitter aftertaste. I liked it, gave it a 7 out of 10.

Actually it's a pretty good beer and you can find it at the chain Firewaters. I know they have them all over the country. This is the myspace link for the one by me. I'm sure you can search for more locations.

I know that ''Beer'' because my dad is Isrealy. The rael thing is called Malta.

Hebrew beer has gotta be one of my new favourite beers but watch out. Despite the Messiah connotations I can assure you the Bold isnt joking as a 6 pack will give you a cosmic hangover smile

To me it doesn't seem so weird. Indeed the name and the commercial are kind of strange, but in rest it looks ok. My boyfriend even says that it is better then Carlsberg, so..

We get it at our local Whole Foods, and there's a fabulous Belgian Beer Bar that we go to, they have Hebrew beer both in the bottle and on tap. I have to let you know, though, there are more than two varieties. I encountered one that packs a punch. If I remember correctly, it had about 12% alcohol, it was yummy. smile
