Beermaking

Hand-crafted in small batches in German traditional style using a top fermenting yeast and cold lagering. Taybeh Golden Beer is brewed with only the finest natural ingredients.

Tasting Notes

A crisp easy-drinking lager, the Birra Tirrana shows a hoppy-bitterness, with a softly carbonated and smooth mouthfeel. Medium in body and malty; but well proportioned, with a characteristic hop bitterness that supports its fine structure.

Food Pairings

Traditional Palestinian cuisine, bratwurst and assorted cheeses (from soft Brie through to hard mature cheddar).
