Oktoberfest in Taybeh

It's September, which means it's time for Oktoberfest in the Palestinian Christian village of Taybeh in the West Bank:
Probably one of the things one least expects to come across on a visit to the Israeli-occupied West Bank is a high-spirited beer festival in full swing.

But that is exactly what visitors to the small Palestinian Christian village of Taybeh were treated to at the weekend.

The village is home to a successful family-owned microbrewery, the Taybeh Brewing Company, whose co-owner, Nadim Khoury, and his sister-in-law, Maria Khoury, staged its third annual Oktoberfest, modelled on the great beer-drinking event in Munich.

That's what Pakestine needs: a bit of good old-fashioned Bavarian Gem├╝tlichkeit.

That should have said Palestine. Damn qwerty keyboards. Why is there no edit function here? I hate typos.
