The weather is heating up and that yeast-free week is of distant memory. Conditions are perfect for beer. With Independence Day still fresh in our minds, it's a damn good time to celebrate Israeli microbrews. Local brews it seems, are hot on the tails of the local wine revolution, the fruits of which continue to prove themselves deliciously enjoyable. This week there are three events in which we at Billboard suggest you attend via public transport, designated driver or your own two feet. Big Brew Day, the unofficial holiday of home brewers around the world, is on May 2. Tel Aviv's NG Meat Bar in Neve Tzedek celebrates throughout the month of May with eight local microbrews including Golda, Dancing Camel, Shap-beer and Isis. A special menu of dishes cooked with beer will be served. 6 Ahad Ha'am St.; (03) 516-7888 The Eighth Beer Festival at Kibbutz Mabarot is always great fun. This year, 50 breweries from all over the world participate, including many Israeli microbreweries. As usual, the Beermaster group - considered the local experts on that wonderful stuff - has organized the festival. (They also organized NG's festival). In addition to the beers, the festival includes raffles, beer games, food stands and more. May 6 and 7 from 6 p.m. to midnight and Friday, May 8 from noon to 6 p.m. Entrance is NIS 30 and beer tastes (100 ml) are NIS 5. For more information call (052) 819-7900 or visit And, today, Friday, Tel Mond's Porterhouse holds a barbecue from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with chef Yossi Asraf. The menu is meaty (including a 200g hamburger for NIS 24, lamb hotdogs for NIS 18 and spareribs for NIS 22) and features local brews (including Libira from Haifa, Golda from Ella Knight brewery and Gofers from Tel Aviv). 8 Bnei Dror Rd.; (09) 796-9666
