Very old beer in Jerusalem – level 1

Very old beer in Jerusalem – level 1

04-05-2016 15:00

This news is about beer. A brewery in Jerusalem brews a very special beer. This beer is 2,000 years old. It is a beer from Jesus’ time.

However, the beer is not very good. Jesus turns water into wine, not beer. This is perhaps the reason.

If you want to try this beer, you are out of luck. People at the brewery produce only 20 litres. They drink all of it. They are not planning to brew any more.

Difficult words: brewery (a place where people brew/make beer), reason (why something is the way it is), out of luck (the situation is bad for you).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
