October may have come and gone, but beer lasts forever. That Israel has never been named among the world's top breweries may simply be oversight. Now is your chance to taste some of the the finest local and foreign-made beers, at the BEERS 2012 festival at Tel Aviv's Nokia Stadium.

On January 11, Israel's best beer importers and microbrewers will put on display their newest products – some brewed especially for this event (professionals in the alcohol/pub/restaurant world are invited to take part in a special festival night of their own, on January 10).

Entrance is NIS 50, and includes five tasting coupons and free beer glass. Wander around the stadium to taste the very wide selection, buy a couple of bottles at a special price, or just learn a little about the world of beers in Israel.
