WEST BANK, Palestine – Madees Khoury is the the only qualified female beer brewer in Palestine. The 31-year-old has been brewing for 10 years, and is now taking over the running of the company from her father and uncle. She says that despite the fact that the older generation of buyers prefers to deal with her dad, younger bar managers are more than happy to work with her, and she believes she can be a role model for other Palestinian girls. She has big plans for the future as well, as she hopes to start exporting Taybeh beer, named after the village where she lives, internationally.
‘Really? You make beer?’ As the only female brewer in Palestine, and possibly the Middle East, Madees Khoury is challenging stereotypes about what women can and can’t do.
