Beer is the most popular summer drink in Canada. Actually, it is the most popular alcoholic beverage in many countries around the world (and not only in summer). Think of Oktoberfest in Germany. It is a festival organized in Munich as a celebration of beer. This is the largest beer festival, but there are others. One is held in Hong Kong! And a beer festival in a Palestinian village on the West Bank attracts tourists from around the world. The locals offer falafels, olive oil, honey, and beer. Among the visitors are NGO workers, diplomats, Israelis, Palestinian politicians, locals, and tourists. The problem is that so far, the festival runs at a loss. Some say that blackmail and corruption are to blame. Others believe that it is because of the cultural gap – the locals are disturbed by alcohol consumption and the presence of women. It may be both.
