    Oktoberfest in the West Bank - A watering hole in the Desert


    Brewer Canaan Khoury shows off a spiced beer with "unique flavours you get from Palestinian cooking"

    (Sadly) There are no Bavarian costumes or oompah bands at the Oktoberfest in Taybeh, in the West Bank.

    Instead, dancers in traditional Arab outfits clap and sway to the music of the oud, while Palestinians and foreigners taste the products of the village brewery.

    Because Taybeh is a Christian village, the beer is alcoholic and mood just as festive as the more famous German event.
    Some beer varieties even taste Palestinian, because brewer Canaan Khoury has experimented with local ingredients for his herbal lager.

    "So we have anise, sage, sumac and wild zaatar, wild thyme, from the mountains of Taybeh," he said.
    "It's a very interesting beer, very aromatic. A lot of people explain to me that it's like Palestine in a glass.
    It really does have all the unique flavours you get from Palestinian cooking."




    Sadly, none of this on the West Bank

    Just this ...

    Actually, I agree it would be on my Beer Bucket List.

    I've been to the Oktoberfest in Munich ... where else is good?

    Apparently Bangkok has one.

    ^Auckland (only a few hundy (if you book wisely and on Jetstar et al) from where you are) is quite the craft beer mecca.

    In fairness, a number of places lay claim to craft/micro brew world centres and destinations.

    Auckland is just one.
