Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A.? I'd have gone with Lenny Brewce, but then again, I'm extremely corny.

/I'd love to try this
//Loves lots of malts and hops

A rye India pale ale, or R.I.P.A.,

Lenny Bruce is a real rippa.

/Can beer be Kosher?

Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

10% beer? Yes, please.

RIPA Rye India Pale Ale
or
RIPA Rest in Peace Ale

Works two ways: Real and Kitch

Either way He'Brew makes great beer. Try Jewbelation

ChairmanKaga: /Can beer be Kosher?

Most beers are. If you're very frum, you're generally gonna drink beers with Kosher certification or from known companies (such as Guinness) and you won't try beer you know nothing about (mostly from micro-breweries, or the dutch), but otherwise there never really is a problem with beer. Wine is another story

What requirements to beer and wine vendors have to follow so that their products are kosher?

They have to remove all the foreskins prior to bottling.

I worked AV support at party for my boss once, he was raising money for a new school at the local temple. There was actually a guy who watched the food. That was his job, he sat in the back and watched the food being prepared! As a Christian I could only assume it was a kosher thing?

/they raised a TON of cash that evening.
//At my Catholic church it would have taken months of second collections.

elchip: What requirements to beer and wine vendors have to follow so that their products are kosher?

first of all (and that includes the same restriction for beer, actually), it has to follow the laws of kashrut and, if bugs are used in anyway, it's automatically treif and can't be used. Other than that, a non-kosher wine is also described as a wine that has been used to be poured on an idol, or with idolatry in mind (which raises a question about whether or not it's ok to have wine that comes from christians) or even if it as even been touched by an idolator in itself. If the vine is meshuval, though (cooked or boiled), it stays kosher (Assuming it was in the beginning), even if it's used in idolatrous situations/by idolators.

Wine has a much more important place in Judaism than beer, that's why there are more restrictions around it and why you'll generally never catch orthodox jews having non-certified kosher wine.

Yup. The man was a rabbi, we call him a posek (someone who decides on Jewish Law matters)

Actually, Genesis Ale is quite good. I'll keep an eye out for the Lenny's, although it may be a bit overly hoppy for me.

This beer is responsible for all the wars in the world.

(What would Mel do if offered a Jewish beer? Talk about inner conflict!)
 
2006-08-07 11:25:15 AM  
Just think, had Mel Gibson gotten his drunk on drinking these beers, he would have blamed the Arabs for all the worlds ills and we never would have heard about it.

I can quickly see this thread turning into a round of Ask The Rabbi. :D

I heard the Jew beer has the blood of Christian babies in it. So don't drink it if you don't like the taste of Christian baby blood.

...new brew commemorating late comedian Lenny Bruce

So instead of drinking it, you inject it with a dirty needle?

Same principles for beer (and wine, mostly).

You have no idea how hard it can be to find quality Kosher Tequila, sometimes

Definitely! I always need a bottle in my appartment, you never know when you'll feel like having a glass (or three)

And you'd be right on that!

hey, that's the exact reason I mentionned GH as Israel's territory! I did talk about boiled wine, after all
 
2006-08-07 11:51:31 AM  
Maybe it's just me, but calling Lenny Bruce the late comedian is like calling George Washington the late President. He's been dead for 40 years.

Seriously now, don't only two nations (the United States and Israel) recognize the Golan Heights as Israeli territory? Why are you even more adamant about keeping the Golan than you are about the West Bank? Because of its strategic value?
 
2006-08-07 11:57:31 AM  
He'brew, the chosen beer. Don't pass out, passover!

Yea pretty much. Missles are easier to target when launched from high ground.
 
2006-08-07 11:59:12 AM  
I've had He'brew. Pretty thick stuff if I remember correctly.

Speaking of Kosher... I was in a Trader Joe's yesterday and while browsing through the meat section, I came across a sign advertising a particular package of meat. It read:

Ribeye steak
100% Kosher
Try it with our Trader Joe's Bleu Cheese!



That just seemed... odd to me.

elchip: Why are you even more adamant about keeping the Golan than you are about the West Bank? Because of its strategic value?

Exactly. It's a key and vital spot in the defense of Israel

Also, I really, really want you to buy this book. That's only 10 bucks. It's an incredible book. It's very incredible. You'll go through it so fast, and will end up asking for more.

Wine doesn't have to be boiled to be mevushal, just flash pasteurized on a hot plate at 57C (135F).

/prefers the non-mevshal

not only odd, but completely wrong and misleading.

The meat might be kosher, but mixing it with cheese makes it treif.

Well, I presumed that they were pointing out the Kosher part to the Jewish customers and then saying (by the way, if you're not Jewish, it's still a great steak to go with our bleu cheese!)

But the manner in which they presented it was odd.

I know, I was making a joke about flames (boiling wine over flames)...

/prefers the non-mevshal

definitely

elchip: Why me?

You
because I figure that, with your personality and general open-mindness, you will really appreciate it.

yeah, that's why I said it was misleading.

He'brew's Genesis Ale isn't good at all.
