Video: The Palestinian Oktoberfest

Despite Israeli occupation, a Palestinian brewery is celebrating international trade.

    Taybeh is a Palestinian town deeply rooted in history and cut off by Israel's separation wall, but life under occupation has not stopped them from brewing a prize-winning beer.

    The beer made at Taybeh Brewery - named for the town where it was first brewed and, incidentally, the Arabic word for "delicious" - is not only popular among Palestinians, but has a following across the world.

    Taybeh beer has proven to be the inspiration of what is becoming a modern-day tradition for the village.
