Is He'Brew—est. 5757, I mean 1996, by Jeremy Cowan and Shmaltz Brewing Company—REALLY the "Chosen Beer"? Is the recipe really kosher certified, rabbi approved? Did Cowan really create a superstrong double-IPA called "Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A., dedicated to comic, druggie, and agitator Lenny Bruce? Is it REALLY the perfect beer to take to bar mitzvahs, weddings, and circumcisions? After gettin' jiggy with a couple sixers of Messiah Stout ("the beer you've been waiting for") this past weekend, I think the answer is probably "yes, yes, yes, and YES." Alex here accidentally took a He'Brew shower in the basement of Neumo's. He didn't say much, either way, about the taste, but he DID SAY it burned his eyes, ruined his favorite shirt, and made his hair soft and silky.

Alex will receive a cab voucher and one DOTW T-shirt. Happy Hanukkah! Dance on some horas! (Or something like that.)
