Taybeh Beer ~ Palestinian Brewer, Liquid Gold...

Discovery-of-the-Day! Taybeh Beer brewed and bottled in -- where else -- Taybeh, which is a village near Ramallah in the West Bank, Palestine a bit north of Jerusalem. Taybeh's of course an Arabic name, but one which, providentially, means "delicious"!-) Founded in 1994 by Nadim Khoury, who returned from Boston, MA, together with brother David Khoury, and their father Canaan the year after the Oslo Accords were signed in 1993. Very compelling entrepreneurship story amidst challenging circumstances! And while they have primarily served their Christian brethren, they today also brew a non-alcoholic Green Label to quench the thirst of abstainers as well!
