Word reached me recently about changes in the Meadan Brewery in Karmiel in the central Galilee. Up until now, the owner, Bryan Meadan, had been brewing his gluten-free, kosher-for-Passover beers. Now, a new owner is producing a new brand of regular craft beers.At the same time, 12 kilometers north, in the Tefen Industrial Park, Malka Beer opened a new brewery, the biggest craft brewery in Israel, producing 70,000 liters a month.
