An Israeli brewery and a Lebanese-owned wine shop in the country’s north-western Jordan Valley have opened a beer garden, where visitors can buy beer and other food items, to celebrate their new venture.
In the northern Jordan Valley, the beer garden is called Al-Fath al-Adawiya and is being built by the Jordan Beer Company, which is a joint venture between Israeli and Lebanese investors.
It is one of many in the region, and Israel is one the countrys largest beer producers, exporting its own brands of beer and wine to more than 100 countries, including the United States, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom.
A few years ago, Jordan had a national ban on beer, but the ban has been lifted in recent years.
Jordan is home to a thriving and bustling beer culture.
Beer is a big draw for many expatriates who travel there.
Jordanian beer is sold at bars and restaurants, restaurants and shops, including in Israel and Jordan.
Al-Fattah al-Baghdadi, the Jordanian beer company’s chairman, said in a statement that the beer was created to promote tourism and attract international visitors to the region.
The brewery in the Al-Adwiya Beer Garden opened in April.
The garden is intended to be a place where visitors are able to purchase beer and enjoy their meals, the statement said.
“The garden will be a destination for our visitors, a place to meet and exchange ideas, as well as a gathering place for our partners to celebrate the opening of the beer Garden,” the statement added.
In recent years, the Beer Garden has attracted international attention with the opening in May of a restaurant in the northern city of Nazareth, where patrons can enjoy food, drinks and beer.
Al Qaeda-linked group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has been waging a campaign of terror in Jordan, killing dozens of people in the past two years.More:
