One Answer to the Middle East: Beer
Every once in a while Time Magazine will do an article that doesn’t send me into a fury. This happens to be one of them.
Madees Khoury’s favorite days are the ones where she wakes at 5 A.M., slips out of the house, enters the huge shed in the yard and, still in her pajamas, climbs the ladder to the top of the stainless steel tanks to begin brewing beer. A graduate of Hellenic College, Boston, Khoury, 24, is the only woman brewer — or brewster — in the Middle East. She is being groomed by her family to take over the Taybeh brewery, home of the only Palestinian beer.
I’m still trying to maneuver the streets of Chicago to find a good place to buy/drink beer, but this will be something I’ll keep an eye out for.
