The Microbreweries of Israel
Israel21c – It’s hard to believe that Israel had no microbreweries only a couple of years ago. Now the country is practically awash with fine ales — more than 20 licensed “boutique” breweries, and a rapidly evolving drinking culture.
“Israeli beers are making a mark on the international beer circuit,” says Shachar Hertz of the Beer & Beyond, one of the country’s major suppliers of beer-making equipment and ingredients. “We have in Israel a cadre of passionate brewmasters who use only premium ingredients and offer a range of style and flavors.”
