1. Beer made in Israel
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (01.05.13)
This beer should be labled as made in Israel.
2. #1 that would be a lie then
3. #1 No it shouldn't!
The world no longer believes your lies! Now it is time for a nice cold Taybeh!
4. One of the best beer ever!
Gregg ,   Haifa IL   (01.05.13)
Sol ,   Champaign   (01.05.13)
This is how Israel built itself up, following the victory in 1948. Build yourselves up Palestinians, you don't have to tear down Israel. Vote Left
6. 1. Efrat isn't inside Israel
Sol ,   Champaign   (01.05.13)
Never has been, and most likely never will be. Annexing it would be too disrupting to the Palestinian towns Enjoy your new passport.
7. Good Palestinian beer, not as strong as Goldstar but good.
miki ,   tampa   (01.05.13)
8. Beer made in Israel
Halmos ,   Rehovot   (01.05.13)
But in this case four or more million Palestinians also be labeled as Made in Israel
9. #1. It is made in Israel
A ,   Belgium   (01.05.13)
Taybe, Tera and Kalandia (?) are known as the triangle and are inside of the so called "green line". Therefore, the beer is made in arabs.
10. #9 The Triangle
Daniel ,   Jerusalem   (01.05.13)
This Taybeh is in the West Bank, close to Ramallah. The Tayibe you are speaking of is indeed in the Triangle, together with Tira, Qalansuwa, Kfar Qassim, Baqa, Uhm al-Fahm and more. Tayibe =/= Taybeh
11. #9 it is not the same Taybeh they are
Sabra   (01.05.13)
talking about the one near Ramallah Ocupied in 1967 . you invited to tast the fantastic Palestinian BEER cheeeers :)
12. #9. West Bank is not part of Israel.
Peace   (01.05.13)
Never will be.
13. Boycot This Beer
emanon ,   USA   (01.05.13)
Read what the brewer says: it is not made in Israel! If he had admitted it was made in Israel, I'd buy it.
14. It is a good beer
Keren Il-BR ,   iSRAEL   (01.05.13)
The beer is so, so good. Sometimes i just ask for it in Tel Aviv restaurants just to provoke the owners... There will be a day where all bars will be serving this terrific drink. Mabruk, chaverim.
15. Rightwing also tells Arabs what to do, think, or believe-
GoodPalestinian Beer ,   tampa   (01.05.13)
16. Oxymoron: Arab Beer
Beer Skeptic ,   Global Village   (01.05.13)
But wait! Don't the Arabs have this prohibition on alcohol? This is pure BS!
17. Beer makes you Fatah
Stan Marsh ,   South Park, USA   (01.05.13)
18. To No. 13
Bertram ,   London, UK   (01.05.13)
You might wish that Taybeh was in Israel - but it isn't. Never mind, if you don't buy the product I am sure the brewers will be crying into their beer.
19. #11. Thanks but no thanks
A ,   Belgium   (01.05.13)
None of my money will go to supporting the phony "palestinian" terrorists. Besides, no one makes better beer than Belgium.
20. To No. 16
Bertram ,   London, UK   (01.05.13)
Kind of you to parade your ignorance for everyone to see. Islam prohibits alcohol; most Arabs follow Islam; a minority do not. It is faintly possible that this beer is made (and consumed) by the latter group, don't you think?
21. Send the woman in the picture to promote the beer here.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.05.13)
I will buy two Taybeh servings, three if she bends forward a little.
22. Khoury family
Arnold ,   Canada   (01.05.13)
There is a large Christian Lebanese community in Montreal. One large clan is the Khoury family so this family name is synonamous with the Christians in the Middle East. Even during the tenseness of Arab/ Israeli relations the Jews and Arab Christians in Montreal have lived side by side for the past 100 years. I like to taste beer from all over the world so i am looking forward to opening up a cool bottle of Taybeh as soon as it arrives in Canada. I do not care if it is labeled made in Israel or made in Palestine. Let us all chill out.
23. hat tip to the strong men in Rd/Gr/Bl
PalestinianLover ,   Michigan   (01.05.13)
I tip my female hat to the strong men in Palestinian Red, Green 'n' black. You fight for survival and you make all of us Americans proud to have a president in Barack Obama profoundly supporting the strong men in red, green 'n' black. Inshalah ill be adopting my 4th Palestinian baby in 2 months and hope to have one of my own one day. You guys truly are the light amongst the beacon. May you spread your love throughout the middle east and I'm always Open to accepting it. You have Americas unwavering support and our bond is
24. Good stuff!!
Thomas the Doubter ,   USA   (01.05.13)
Drank a bottle in Bethlehem once. Not bad on a hot August day!
25. It won't be an issue much longer
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (01.05.13)
The 'tolerant' Muslim majority will soon shut them down and then ethnically cleansing them, like they have done everywhere they are a majority or even a large minority
26. No screams for boycott?
steve from raleigh   (01.05.13)
Of course not. Not a Jewish business.
27. does Taybeh profits go towards flowers or rockets?
zionist forever   (01.05.13)
Israeli beer is bad enough so the last thing the region needs is more rubbish. This rubbish might also be damaging to your health if you buy this stuff because you never know what they will spend the profits on, do we really want to have to spend more money on Iron Dome so we can drink arab beer? If you want good beer buy European. If you want to support Israel buy Maccabi or Gold Star. If you want to support terrorists buy Taybeh
28. #4 Gregg
Vlad   (01.06.13)
Still in Haifa? Why aren't you in Italy yet?
29. Taybeh beer: Product of Israel
Ezra ,   San Diego   (01.06.13)
Obviously, Israeli culture has allowed this beer to flourish. Bring in the extremists and they will probably shut it down. In the meantime, enjoy.
30. #1-First we must give them citizenship
Cohen,Israel   (01.06.13)
and only then we could lable it as made in Israel. You can't eat the cake and have it at the same time....
