    Guy's got stones. How does he vet clientele at the door for anti-alcohol fanatics who will detonate a suicide vest to keep everything kos...er...Islamic and all that.

    Perhaps this will be a small catalyst in opening peoples minds in that part of the world. Hard to argue religious taboos where there is proof that something harms society, since alcohol is addictive. But there also should be some tolerance for moderation - which is a foreign concept in some cultures. Bravo to Yazan.

    If you Google "terrorist attack Jordan" you will see that they probably have the lowest incident of terror attacks in the Middle East, and when they do happen it's usually not carried out by Jordanians. They have aggressive anti-terror policing and Karadsheh seems to already know half the beer drinkers in Jordan.

    I wish him the best of luck. I hope more countries have increasingly thriving microbrewery scenes.

    Wow. I did not realize beer was allowed to be consumed in Jordan, let alone a Muslim majority country in the middle east. Good news. Hopefully, his brewery will thrive and allow others the opportunity to open breweries as well.

    We have more terrorism in the U.S., and we probably have more prohibitionist zealots, too (at least one in the form of the Attorney General, although I think he's more focused on pot than alcohol. For now.).

    It was best not to name it the 70 Virgins Brewing Company.
