i know for a fact we can get Israeli beer in Baltimore at Kosher Bite and as much as I do love the fried chicken there, I was hoping to find some Israeli beer closer to home in Philly.. Going to New Jersey (Cherry Hill area or even the Northern DE area would work. Anyone?

        Thank yuou so much for the duggestion Barrry G! We were downtown today and stopped in. VERY nice staff, helpful and kind. It was kinda neat too to look around- cool stuff there. I am from NJ so we don't have such places there. Beer is bought at the liquor atore as is wine and other "adult" beverages. Thois was a fun trip and I got what I needed (wanted) thanks!

      2. Does anyone import Israeli microbrews?

          Is there an Israeli microbrew that is worth drinking over an American microbrew besides that it's from Israel? Especially once you factor in the age of the beer after shipping, I have a hard time thinking of a reason I'd want to drink an Israeli beer outside of Israel.

            WE've been talking about what to give for Purim and beer was an idea among other things too. My husband thought an Israeli beer would be best, so I asked the question. I rarely drink the stuff, had a sip over the summer and may have one again when we buy the case that we MUST buy according to PA law. Beer works for us so we'll give it.

              Avitrek, Better than Brooklyn Brewery's Local #2? Not yet. But some are very good and putting a dinner party, reception or event together is not entirely about taste. Sometimes it's about novelty, conversation starters, or showcasing Israel by talking food. Of course the beer has to be good. But Belgian beer gets here fast enough to taste great. Why not Israeli?
